Important update: this model is updated to Android version 12L.
Check the availability of the update version in your region on the manufacturer’s website.

Android version and market relevance

In February 2022 was announced tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus. It is located in a series of Galaxy Tab S among many other tablets Samsung.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the tablet is launched, so to speak, out of the box. And Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus is working on Android 12, which by the way is not so bad, as for the tablet in 2022 release. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus is updated to the version of 12L.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the tablet has support for high-speed mobile networks. This version supports GSM/HSPA/LTE/5G networks and works with only one SIM card. We advise you to look at android-tablets with two sim-cards.

Screen, body and battery

A very capacious battery Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus received a volume of 10 090 mAh. In this case, the tablet has a huge Super AMOLED touchscreen with a diagonal of 12.4 inches.

The thickness of the case is 5.7 mm. This is a very good indicator, any tablet with such parameters of the case conveniently fits in the hand and they can be easily used.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus has a physical QWERTY keyboard. If you ooooochen write a lot on the tablet, and you do not like the touch keyboard, then, perhaps, for you, this is the kind of tablet that works best.

Support stylus implemented in Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus. With it, you can always draw or write something on the tablet screen. The stylus is hidden in the case and gets out of there only when you need it. It is convenient and very functional.

Main camera and selfie camera

Very good camera 13 MP Wide + 6 MP UltraWide from Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus. Thanks to this tablet can safely be called one of the best. In addition to the main camera, which is very important, it is also worth paying attention to the quality of the pictures from the front camera. And here at this model the front-seat camera got its 12 MP UltraWide.

Processor and Internal Memory

The tablet performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-tablet, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the tablet you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your tablet. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (4 nm). As for RAM, the memory module is used here 8 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 12 GB. You can choose the right version of the tablet, but note that the price of these versions is different.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in tablet memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. The manufacturer releases several versions of this tablet with different memory sizes: 128/256 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus: buy or not to buy?

Life is fleeting, and the life of a tablet on the mobile market in general can be compared with the life of a butterfly. And all because the producers of android-tablets do not always want to support their devices and prefer to release a new model in six months. Therefore, our task is to help you choose the actual tablet today, which is being sold and will be still relevant for at least the next six months. If Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus you find among DROID tablets in our catalog, you can safely buy it now, and if you do not find it, then its better already do not buy.

However, official sales Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus began in February 2022. The manufacturer said the price of $900 without taxes and fees. With such a price level on Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus, we placed it in the price segment “Flagships tablets from $500”.

Buy Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus you can in any store (or on the Internet, or in the electronics supermarket), we just advise you to see live on the tablet and hold it in your hands before buying.

Samsung Unpacked presentation: what is known about Galaxy Tab S8 tablets

We have already written about the flagship smartphones Samsung Galaxy S22 before. And now we need to supplement the expectations from the Unpacked event with information about the Galaxy Tab S8, Tab S8+ and Tab S8 Ultra tablets.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series of tablets to be announced in February 2022

Even before the announcement, there were so many leaks of various information about new products. Therefore, absolutely all the characteristics of the Galaxy Tab S8 series of tablets are now known.

The first difference between the new Tab S8 series and the Tab S7 (announced in August 2020) is that it will include three models, not two. There will be a new model Tab S8 Ultra with the largest 14.6-inch Super AMOLED screen, with a modification of 512/16 GB (built-in storage and RAM, respectively) and a dual selfie camera (12 MP Wide + 12 MP UltraWide).

Of course, the new series will be built on the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (4 nm) processor and will receive Android 12 out of the box. The case dimensions and battery capacity are the same as the models from 2020 (5.7 and 6.3 mm thick, 10,090 and 8,000 mAh batteries in the Plus version and in the base model). But the Ultra-version of the tablet will receive an 11,200 mAh battery with fast charging (45 W), and the body thickness will be only 5.5 mm.

As for the price of the Galaxy Tab S8 series, the following rumors are known here: the price of the Tab S8 Ultra is from $1300, the Tab S8+ will be sold from $1070, and the simplest model of the Tab S8 received a price tag of $850.

Tomorrow at the official presentation, we expect more specs about the devices and the date of the start of sales.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
