That had been the first recent attempt of the company to propose truly effective models to make some chair tremble in Cupertino.Last year Samsung managed to churn out the expensive but apt Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus (and its small and modest twin, Galaxy Tab S7), which thanks to a large AMOLED screen, the included nib and the important features, among theWhat a new generation AMOLED screen has proved to be a real competition for Apple's undisputed domain in the tablet sector.

07/12/2021: some rendering of the possible design of the three tablets that will make up the series, namely Galaxy Tab S8, S8 Plus and S8 Ultra have been leaked.The latter should have a screen of important size and a rather large battery.Samsung would be evaluating the addition of a small notch to host the dual front camera.This means that tablets could have thinner frames all around the display.
19/11/2021: Due to a Covid outbreak that broke out in a Samsung factory, the exit of Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 would have been delayed.There seems to be no consequences for the Samsung Galaxy S22 series.

07/09/2021: Galaxy Tab S8 Plus could mount the Snapdragon 898 processor, the same that we will find on some models of the Galaxy S22 series, while Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will mount the Exynos 2200.According to other previous rumors, all the tablets of the series will monitor Snapdragon 898, so we would not put our hand on the fire.It also appears that the new tablets will be released together with the Galaxy S22 series at the beginning of next year.
7/07/2021: the indiscretion from a leaker named Lanzuk, posted on a Korean social media, provided that due to the poor availability of chipset, the launch of the new Galaxy Tab S8 range was postponed at the beginning of2022 in an unspecified date.It will not be able to wait next August to see if the source was well informed and we will have to wait another 6 months before getting your hands on the new generation Samsung tablets.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8: what we would like to see
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and in particular the Galaxy Tab S7 Plus are excellent tablets, and the Plus version is also at the top of our ranking of the best Android tablets.However, they are not perfect, therefore we have some advice and idea about what Samsung could do to further improve the Galaxy Tab S8 line.
As with last year, we plan that there are more models, or at least 2.Following the current nomenclature they could be called Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8 Plus and be differentiated by the size of the body.
The Plus model will probably be equipped with a AMOLED screen and both could have a 120 Hz refresh rate and a high -end chipset, such as the Snapdragon 888.
With the addition of the optional keyboard Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 acquires the flexibility of a mini notebook, but has only a USB-C connector that limits its other excellent versatility a little.
Therefore Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 should have a second additional connector and ideally also a 3.5 mm jack to be able to connect audio headphones.
Tablets must not be thin and compact like smartphones, therefore we believe that the usefulness of having an audio connector is more important than the space that would be saved by removing it by removing.
2.A more competitive price
The Galaxy Tab S range is positioned in the high end of the market, therefore it is practically impossible to find economic models.However, we think that some models, such as the "smooth" Galaxy S7 that was missing some features of the older brother, could have been sold at a cheaper price, therefore we hope that the prices of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 range will be modulated better than thoseof the previous.
3.A backlit cover keyboard
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 supports an optional, good quality keyboard cover, but the non -retroillhout keys are difficult to use in the dark, therefore we would like them to be.It is not a real problem, but it could make a big difference for some people, so we would like the keys of the Galaxy Tab S8 external keyboard cover to be backlit.
4.An OLED screen on all models
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus has a AMOLED screen, but the "smooth" tab is equipped with an all too traditional LCD screen, so we would like the whole Galaxy Tab S8 line to be equipped with one of Samsung's excellent AMOLED screens.
More and more companies offer OLED screens on their devices and even Apple now offers them on almost the entire iPhone range, we therefore believe that all Samsung high -end tablets use an OLED screen.
In addition, Apple has adopted the OLED on its phones, while the iPad range still uses LCD screens, and it is one of those things that can push the less satisfied Apple customers to Samsung models.
5.A back that does not hold on fingerprints
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7 Plus have an aluminum back that gives them an appearance and a feeling of value to the touch, but something that partially ruins the appearance is inherent in their inclination to retain (and show) the fingerprints, as we pointed out in our review.
This is a problem already seen on many phones, tablets and notebooks, but we would like Samsung to try to solve the problem definitively on Galaxy Tab S8, above all because tablets are not always used with a case and we would like our expensive Tab S8it always remained immaculate as in the first day of use.
