Samsung’s next batch of tablets could include a 14.6-inch ‘Ultra’ model with a notch

Samsung may be adding its first-ever “Ultra” model to its upcoming Galaxy Tab S8 lineup, which will also include a Tab S8 and S8 Plus, as rumored by WinFuture.

According to WinFuture, the flagship Ultra model could have a 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2960 x 1848 px, a refresh rate up to 120 Hz and a notch with two 12-megapixel (MP) cameras. It may also come with the option of up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, along with an 11,200mAh battery.

Compared to the Tab S8 Ultra, the Super AMOLED display on the Tab S8 Plus is slightly smaller, possibly 12.7 inches with a resolution of 2800 x 1752px. WinFuture says the mid-grade model may not have a notch and may come with a 10090 mAh battery. The base model of the Tab S8 will obviously be the smallest of the bunch and it is rumored to have an 11-inch LTPS TFT display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600px, a notch-less design and an 8000mAh battery. Both the Tab S8 and S8 Plus have smaller memory and storage options and offer up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

As for the power supply of the devices, WinFuture notes that any tablet in Samsung’s new lineup may come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and the Adreno 730 GPU. All models also have a 13MP dual camera and 6MP ultra-wide angle lens on the back, a 12MP front camera (except the Ultra, which has two), S-Pen compatibility, under-display fingerprint scanners, optional 5G connectivity, as well as quad speakers that support Dolby Atmos.

There is no confirmed pricing information for S8 Tabs yet, but a leak from apples can give a hint as to what to expect. apples Claims prices for the WiFi-only Tab S8 Ultra start at €1,040 to €1,060 (~$1,187 to $1,210), with additional storage and 5G connectivity adding to that price. The Wi-Fi-only Tab S8 Plus can start at €880 to €900 (~ €1,004 to €1,027), with the base Tab S8 possibly starting at €680 to €700 (~€776 to $799).

WinFuture predicts that Samsung will either introduce its Galaxy Tab S8 lineup at the Samsung Unpacked event on February 8 (possibly alongside the Samsung Galaxy S22), or at the Mobile World Conference (MWC), which starts on February 28. Samsung last released its Galaxy Tab S7 lineup in 2020, which consists of just two tablets: the Tab S7 and Tab S7 Plus.
