Across all three models, Galaxy Tab S9, S9+ and S9 Ultra, Dynamic AMOLED 2X displays ensure epic viewing and entertainment experiences with the power of Qualcomm Snapdragon® 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy.[i] An in-box, IP68-rated S Pen helps users bring their ideas to life. And as the first Galaxy Tab S series to earn an IP68 rating,[ii] Galaxy Tab S9 series enables users to follow their inspiration, both indoors and out.


“There are few devices like the Galaxy Tab S9 on the market today. A true disrupter in its category, it is the first of its kind to deliver experiences that users love most about tablets in one complete premium design,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics. “The Galaxy Tab S9 series empowers users to take their big ideas and bring them to life, completely effortlessly.”

The S Pen Creator Edition is designed with textured material for a comfortable grip and a wider tilt angle that makes creating more intuitive.


The immersive displays of the Galaxy Tab S9 series are the ideal backdrop for any project. With Multi Window,[x] up to three apps can display as an organised grid of easily adjustable windows. Users can do research in a browser, reference an image from Samsung Gallery and sketch out ideas in Samsung Notes, all simultaneously in one view. Or with Pop-Up View, apps can be viewed as floating windows while still showing the full home screen.



When travelling or working on the go, Galaxy Tab S9 series’ Book Cover Keyboard[xi] and DeX Mode[xii] can simulate a desktop experience with maximum tablet portability. The Book Cover Keyboard’s adjustable angles and backlit keypad feel like a lightweight PC. Meanwhile, DeX Mode has an easy-to-follow cursor, flexible window resizing and positioning, and Second Screen[xiii] capabilities to mirror or extend the PC screen to tablet. In a Google Meet[xiv] call, collaborate more easily by sharing the screen and co-editing a live Samsung Notes document at the same time.
