The main camera, located on the back side, received 13 MP Wide + 6 MP UltraWide, and we would rate her 5 out of 5, for being one of the best cameras on the market. The front camera is also in Samsung Galaxy Tab S8. It is located in front of the screen and has its own 12 MP UltraWide.

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

Price Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 at the start of sales was $700. A tablet with this price level got into the price segment “Flagships tablets from $500” and got a very powerful processor, a huge touchscreen, and a super cool main camera, and you can make very high quality and creative photos with it.

Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good tablets are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.

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
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.
