Introducing Samsung’s new flagship tablets: Galaxy Tab S8, Galaxy Tab S8 + and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra
The new tablets of the Tab S8 series naturally all three support the S Pen, and the method of connecting this pen to the tablet through a special place on the back of the device is also a change compared to has not done before Design Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus is completely similar and except for changing the screen size, there is another difference in Their appearance cannot be seen. S8 Ultra is slightly different and although it shows a similar design on the back, it works differently from the other two models with a very narrow border around the screen and a notch for the dual selfie cameras. The fingerprint sensor in the Tab S8 is located on the side of the device, but in both models this option has been moved to the screen.
In Tab S Ultra, the Armor Aluminum chassis is used, which covers almost the entire tablet (except for the side buttons and SIM card port) and compared to Tab S7 is up to 30% less likely to scratch and 40% less likely to bend. The narrow border around the screen in the ultra model has reached an interesting figure of 6.3 mm, which Samsung says is the best screen-to-body ratio. among all Tab S devices.
Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus are offered in silver, graphite gray and pink (Pink Gold) colors, but the more advanced version Tab S8 Ultra will be available in only one color, Graphite Grey. In this family, like the S22 series phones, environmental considerations have been taken into account in the packaging, and while removing plastic from the box wrapper, the slimmest box in this family has been used so far.
Galaxy Tab S8 has the dimensions of 6.3 x 165.3 x 253.8 mm and weighs 503 and 507 grams in two Wi-Fi and 5G versions, respectively. Although the aspect ratio is different, a direct comparison of the length and width of the Tab S8 and other advanced 11-inch tablets on the market today is iPad Pro 11 2021 looks somewhat irrelevant, but in terms of thickness and weight, the situation is in Apple’s favor and iPad Pro 11 is 5.9 mm thick and weighs 466 and 468 grams. It works better than Samsung in both Wi-Fi and cellular versions. Tab S8, on the other hand, has a larger battery that can compensate for a large part of this difference.
+Tab S8 with a 12.4-inch screen It has dimensions of 5.7 x 185 x 285 mm, which has appeared very successful especially in terms of thickness. This tablet weighs 567 and 572 grams in two Wi-Fi and 5G versions, respectively, which is less than Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2021″>iPad Pro 12.9 Apple with a thickness of 6.4 mm and a weight of 682 and 684 grams (in both Wi-Fi and cellular versions) seems to be a more ergonomic choice.
Finally, the biggest tablet presented this time is Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has a 14.6-inch screen with dimensions of 5.5 x 208.6 x 326.4 mm, which seems quite large for normal use, but In many applications, including in It will be an interesting choice when watching videos and drawing with a pen. The weight of this tablet in two Wi-Fi and 5G versions is 726 and 728 grams, respectively, which is considered a relatively good weight considering the size of the screen and its bulky battery on the one hand and the aluminum body of the device on the other hand.
The displays of all three tablets support a 120 Hz refresh rate, but this is the only point they have in common and all of them have differences. have a specific The Tab S8 features an 11-inch LTPS TFT display with a resolution of 1600 x 2560 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 276ppi. In Tab S8 Plus, the size of the screen is 12.4 inches and the resolution of 1752 x 2800 pixels leads to a density of 266ppi. Unlike the regular S8, this panel is of Super AMOLED type and naturally offers higher quality in terms of contrast, viewing angle and color richness. Finally, in the Tab S8 Ultra, we face another Super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1848 x 2960 pixels, which provides a density equal to 240 pixels per inch.
Above the screen of all three tablets (from a horizontal view) is their selfie camera, which is a 12-megapixel ultrawide in the S8 and S8+, but separate from this camera in the S8 Ultra. We also get a normal 12 megapixel wide. The 120-degree ultra wide-view camera in this part supports Auto Framing, something similar to Center Stage Apple It is in the new iPads of this company and in this way, by adding each person to the video, a more open image is presented that contains more people.
In the structure of all three tablets, three microphones are used to pick up better sound and minimize noise, one above the screen next to the selfie camera, the other on the left side of the screen and The third one is located on the back next to the cameras.
The cameras on the back are the same in all three tablets and include a 13-megapixel main camera and a 6-megapixel ultrawide camera. An LED flash can also be seen in this part.
Other common features of these three models are as As mentioned, it belongs to their S Pen, whose performance has not changed compared to the past and is still used for other things, such as taking selfies, controlling presentations and playing music, in addition to writing directly on the screen. The prediction algorithm based on artificial intelligence, like the S22 Ultra, was also present in the Tab S8 family, and here too, there is a 30% reduction in the delay time when writing with the S Pen. The best lag time in between seems to be S8 Ultra and belongs to +S8 which is similar S22 Ultra have a delay time of 2.8 seconds and In Tab S8, the delay time is 6.2 milliseconds.
For these three models like In the past, various accessories have been considered, including the keyboard cover known as Book Cover Keyboard, Protective Standing Cover, and Strap Cover (only for S8 and S8+).
Processing in new tablets Samsung as expected with advanced 4nm chipset Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 cores, which is based on a 3 GHz core Cortex-X2, three 2.5 GHz cores Cortex-A710 and four 1.8 GHz cores A510 It is equipped with Adreno 730 graphics. Two models Tab S8 and Tab S8 + are offered with 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal memory, but in Tab S8 Ultra, apart from these options, another more advanced version with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal memory is also available. All three tablets also support the microSD memory card port, which can increase the internal memory up to 1 TB.
Battery capacity in Tab S8 and +Tab S8 ratio The Tab S7 and Tab S7+ have not changed and remain constant at 8,000 and 10,090 mAh respectively. The maximum power of the charger supported by this set is the same as the previous 45 watts, which, of course, must be purchased separately. The time required to charge the battery of these two tablets through this charger has been announced as 80 minutes.
In Tab S8 Ultra, the battery capacity has increased to 11,200mAh and with the help of a 45-watt charger, the time has increased to 90 minutes. We will need to fill the battery. There is no news of wireless charging in these tablets, but with the help of OTG, you can use the wired charging with 15 watts power. Of course, this feature is apparently not available for all devices and Samsung from phones such as Galaxy A53, Galaxy A33 and He mentioned the S22 series as suitable examples in this field.
The most interesting point in the communication section of these tablets, apart from 5G, belongs to Wi-Fi 6E, which appeared for the first time in a Galaxy tablet and compared to Wi-Fi 6 It offers twice the bandwidth and higher speed. Bluetooth 5.2 and GPS/GLONASS/BeiDou/Galileo satellite routers are other communication ways of these models. The wired connection port in these three models is USB-C type with USB 3.2 speed standard, and in the absence of a headset jack, the wired headset can be connected to the device in the same way. This family is equipped with 4 AKG stereo speakers that support Dolby Atmos surround sound.
