The Samsung Tab S8 Ultra features a 14.6-inch AMOLED display.
Much has been said and written online about Samsung’s highly anticipated high-end tablets lately. Based on all the information already available, LetsGoDigital has created a series of product renders of the new flagship model: the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. Of note on this model is definitely the notch for the camera. Samsung has never released a tablet with a notch before.
The Tab S8 Ultra, therefore, gets noticeably narrower screen bezels than before, so Samsung is simply forced to look for a different solution for the front camera. can be used without increasing the size of the device. This benefits portability and ease of use. The Tab S7 Plus has already been praised for its beautiful AMOLED display (12.4-inch, WQXGA+ resolution, 120Hz), the new Ultra model will undoubtedly deliver a visual even better. The top model will be equipped with a 14.6-inch display with WQXGA+ resolution (2,960 x 1,848 pixels) and a 120Hz refresh rate. Peak brightness is 420 nits. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, as was the case with its predecessor. a wide-angle lens and an ultra-wide-angle lens. Both are equipped with a 12-megapixel image sensor.
Videos can be recorded in 4K resolution at 60 fps, with both lenses. According to the South Korean SuperRoader, this time Samsung will also add auto-framing – similar to Apple’s Center Stage feature. The auto framing feature was first implemented in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 foldable phone and ensures that the subject always stays in focus when recording a video, ideal for hands-free video recording, such as a vlog. The camera will automatically follow your movements and continue to focus.
S Pen has been redesigned to have a shorter latency.
Of course, the new flagship will also offer support for the S Pen, so you can work more productively and creatively. Samsung will improve the stylus again. The Tab S8 Ultra will get an S Pen with a latency of just 2.8ms, according to Ice Universe. In practice, this means that writing with the S Pen feels as natural as with a regular pen. Latency has also been reduced with the Tab S7 Plus’ S Pen stylus. Previous models had a latency of 26ms, this was reduced to 9ms with the Tab S7+.
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and S21 Ultra are also compatible with a 9 ms S Pen. This time, Samsung takes a step forward with a delay of just 2.8ms. This applies to both the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and the Galaxy S22 Ultra. You can magnetically attach the stylus to the tablet, both on the back and on the top. This greatly reduces the risk of the S Pen continuing to wobble somewhere. Samsung also automatically alerts via software if the S Pen is out of range of the tablet. The new tablet will be equipped with Android 12, in combination with the One UI 4.1 user interface. Under the hood is the super-powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, it’s the latest and most powerful mobile chip from Qualcomm.
For a long time, it was thought to be the Snapdragon 898. Samsung, on the other hand, appears to want to make the new tablets as powerful as possible. The Ultra model has more memory. Several memory variants are being released.It comes with 8GB / 12GB / 16GB RAM and 128GB / 256GB and 512GB storage memory.Support for a microSD memory card will be maintained.
