Breaking the Rules with Galaxy Tab S8 series: Our Biggest, Boldest, Most Versatile Galaxy Tablets Yet
The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra joins the Samsung tablet portfolio – offering powerful performance, a truly immersive display, and seamless ecosystem connectivity
Today, Samsung Electronics Canada announced its new Galaxy Tab S8 series, which includes the Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8+, and the first-ever Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra tablet with our biggest, boldest display yet and the most powerful performance Galaxy Tab S has ever offered. Sophisticated hardware, premium productivity features, and seamless Galaxy ecosystem connectivity – are all combined in a single portable powerhouse that is designed to be your perfect companion in an always-on, video-first world. The Galaxy Tab S8 series offers you the freedom and flexibility you deserve to work and play on the go.
Now, we rely on tablets for video calls and streaming. Each Galaxy Tab S8 series device offers an improved video conferencing experience with ultra-wide front cameras, a three-microphone setup, and intelligent auto-framing. The tablets offer revolutionary multitasking capabilities with enhanced Multi-active Windows and Samsung DeX, file-sharing with password-protected Quick Share, powerful productivity with the new super-fast 4nm processor, and a smoother S Pen included in the box. All of this is packed into the thinnest and toughest Armor Aluminum body yet for greater portability, and enhanced your mobile experience. The Galaxy Tab S8 series works hand-in-hand with your full ecosystem of Galaxy devices, thanks to features like Second Screen and Buds Auto Switch.
“As we rely more on videos to stay connected and entertained, we know that a tablet’s most compelling feature is its large screen and portability,” said TM Roh, President & Head of MX Business at Samsung Electronics. “We built on years of innovation in mobile experiences to refine the Galaxy Tab S8 series, and to push the boundaries of what’s possible on a tablet with the first Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.”
Expand Your World with the First Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra
The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra offers a premium tablet experience that is unlike any Galaxy Tab before it. With its expansive 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display and 120Hz refresh rate, it also boasts the thinnest bezels yet on a Galaxy tablet at 6.3mm for a maximum screen-to-body ratio and a truly immersive experience. Its gorgeous display is protected by an Armor Aluminum frame, making it over 30% more scratch-resistant and 40% less prone to bending than its predecessor. With premium technology you can take just about anywhere, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is built to fully immerse you in every video, movie, game and more, on-the-move.
Equipped with powerful dual 12MP front cameras, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra also transforms your video call experience with professional 4K video quality. Advanced hardware meets software with Samsung auto-framing technology that automatically keeps you in focus during a call, while also zooming in or out to include new participants as they join you. You’ll also sound as clear as you look, thanks to three precision microphones that use advanced noise reduction technology to prevent unwanted background chatter. Quad Speakers with Dolby Atmos®, found on all three Galaxy Tab S8 series models, ensure that everything sounds incredible and clear.
Work, Play and Connect
Whether you want to explore your artistic side, be immersed in lag-free gaming, or simply multitask with ease, the Galaxy Tab S8 series is the tablet you need for unbeatable performance. Equipped with the first 4nm chip – the fastest processor ever in a Galaxy Tablet – Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8+ also provide ample RAM and storage for any task. If you need more, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra can expand to 12 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of storage, and all three models offer expandable storage of up to 1 TB with an optional microSD card.
The Galaxy Tab S8 series is also the first Samsung tablet to support Wi-Fi 6E, which provides up to double the bandwidth and maximum speed of Wi-Fi 6. With optimized network quality you don’t have to worry about weak connections.
With Galaxy Tab S8, you’ll always be ready for action, fueled by an intelligent all-day battery that supports hours of video playback when you’re in the middle of a movie marathon. It supports 45W super-fast charging that can get you back to 100% in just 80 minutes. The incredible fast-charging battery on the Galaxy Tab S8 can double as a portable charger. Simply connect your Galaxy S22 series smartphone using a USB-C cable.
The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and Galaxy Tab S8+ both come with a new and improved S Pen that delivers an incredible writing experience that mimics gliding a pen across paper thanks to its ultra-low latency.
Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra boasts new 4K recording capabilities now allow you to capture crisp, eye-catching videos with both the rear camera and ultra-wide front camera. Content creators and streamers can effortlessly create online tutorials and gameplay, using customizable Selfie Videos that are now embedded within Samsung’s Screen Recorder.
The expansive display on the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra makes it easy for you to split the screen into multiple, resizable windows, so you can multitask without having to toggle between apps. Get inspired, search websites, and annotate presentation slides — all in one view.
Tablets also play an important role in keeping you connected to others. Samsung has partnered with Google for even better video calling and live sharing experiences through Google Duo; so, you can co-watch videos with your friends on YouTube, share your browser to help plan your next meetup, or develop creative ideas using JamBoard, Google’s interactive whiteboard.
Life Opens Up with Galaxy
The Galaxy Tab S8 series performs seamlessly with the entire Galaxy ecosystem. We’ve ensured that the Samsung One UI Tab 4 user interface offers you a consistent and intuitive experience, seamless connectivity as well as smart integrations that flow from your Galaxy Tab S8 to smartphone and PC.
When inspiration strikes on the go, use the S Pen to jot down reminders in the new and improved Samsung Notes app on the Galaxy Tab S8 series and pull them up on your smartphone later for easy reference. And with the Galaxy Tab S8 series and Galaxy S22 Ultra, Quick Share enables you to share photos, videos, and files between devices twice as fast as its predecessor. Thanks to Auto Switch, your Galaxy Buds will automatically connect from your Galaxy Tab S8 to your Galaxy S22, so you can move between devices without missing a beat. And for the first time, the Samsung Health app is available on Galaxy tablets so you can browse fitness videos for workout content and keep track of your wellness and fitness data from your Galaxy Watch on a larger screen.
The Galaxy Tab S8 can be turned into a portable second monitor with touchscreen capabilities for Galaxy PCs for side-by-side multitasking. Samsung DeX – a convenient desktop experience that takes the Galaxy Tab S8 from tablet mode to desktop mode – now allows for transparent app windows and DeX mirroring for when you want to share your tablet’s screen on an external display.
A Tablet You Can Trust and Feel Good About
In today’s always-connected world, security is more important than ever, which is why the Galaxy Tab S8 series boasts new features that allow you to track when your tablet’s camera and microphone are in use, giving you the option to instantly block all app access to prevent unwanted recording. The Galaxy Tab S8 series is also protected by the industry-leading Samsung Knox Vault platform, which encrypts personal data and keeps stored files and information isolated from the device’s main operating system to safeguard it from attacks. All members of the lineup sport an intuitive fingerprint scanner that enables single-touch device unlocking.
