Samsung unveils Galaxy Tab 8 Series

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra joins Samsung’s tablet portfolio

Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Tab 8 Series, comprising the Galaxy Tab 8, Tab 8+ and Tab S8 Ultra tablet, with the biggest displays and most powerful performance Galaxy Tab S has ever offered.

Each Galaxy Tab S8 offers an improved video conferencing experience with ultra-wide front cameras, a three-microphone setup and intelligent auto-framing technology for a truly professional video call experience.

All this is packed into the thinnest and toughest Armor Aluminum body for greater portability, and to enhance your mobile experience further, Galaxy Tab S8 series works hand-in-hand with your full ecosystem of Galaxy devices, with 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.”

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra offers a premium tablet experience unlike any Galaxy Tab before. With its expansive 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display and 120Hz refresh rate, it also boasts Galaxy Tab’s thinnest ever bezels at 6.3mm for a maximum screen-to-body ratio for a truly immersive experience.

Its gorgeous display is housed in the thinnest, lightest, but strongest body yet, protected by an Armor Aluminum frame that is over 30% more scratch-resistant and 40% less prone to bending than Galaxy Tab S7.

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’s 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.

Work, Play and Connect

Equipped with the fastest processor ever in a Galaxy Tab — a 4nm chip — Galaxy Tab S8 and S8+ also provide ample RAM and storage for any task. If you need more, Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra packs in up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage, and all three models offer expandable storage by up to 1TB 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, and with optimized network quality you don’t have to stress about weak connections.

On Galaxy Tab S8 series, you’re always ready for action, fuelled 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 80 minutes. If your other devices need a power boost on-the-go, simply connect your Galaxy Tab S8 to a Galaxy S22 smartphone with a USB-C cable, and the tablet’s incredible fast-charging battery can double as a portable charger.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and S8+ both come with a new and improved S Pen that uses a prediction algorithm for ultra-low latency — delivering an incredible writing experience that mimics gliding a pen across paper. And for the first time ever, Samsung’s exclusive partnership with Clip Studio Paint can turn your smartphone into a digital colour palette, your S Pen into a paintbrush, and Galaxy Tab S8’s expansive screen into your canvas.

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra’s 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 capture online tutorials and gameplay effortlessly, using customizable Selfie Videos that are now embedded within Samsung’s Screen Recorder.

With LumaFusion’s premier editing tool coming soon to Galaxy, you will soon be able to use your Galaxy Tab S8 and S Pen to make precise edits to 4K videos.

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra’s expansive screen also 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 open Galaxy ecosystem. Openness means giving you the flexibility to define your own mobile experience and easily use Galaxy devices together.

When inspiration strikes on the go, use the S Pen to jot down reminders in a 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 before.

Thanks to Auto Switch, your Galaxy Buds will automatically pair from your Galaxy Tab S8 to your Galaxy S22, so users can move between devices without missing a beat. And for the first time, Samsung Health is available on Galaxy tablets so you can browse fitness videos for workout content and keep track of your health and fitness data from your Galaxy Watch on a larger screen.

You can also turn Galaxy Tab S8 into a portable second monitor with touchscreen capabilities for Galaxy PCs for side-by-side multitasking. And enhancements to Samsung DeX — a convenient desktop experience that takes the Galaxy Tab S8 from tablet mode to desktop mode — now allows transparent app windows and DeX mirroring for when you want to share your tablet’s screen on an external display.


In today’s always-connected world, security is more important than ever, which is why all three Galaxy Tab S8 models are equipped with new features that give the ability to track when your tablet’s camera and microphone are in use and allow you to instantly block all app access to prevent unwanted recording.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Series is also protected by Samsung’s industry-leading 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 line-up sport an intuitive fingerprint scanner that enables single-touch device unlocking.

As part of Samsung’s commitment to giving users the best possible mobile performance and experience, the Galaxy Tab S8 series will be supported by up to four generations of Android OS upgrades and 5 years of security updates.

Sustainable Design

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra comes in bold and timeless Graphite, and Galaxy Tab S8 and S8+ come in three sophisticated shades — Graphite, Silver and Pink Gold.

Samsung is also releasing a new Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Book Cover Keyboard that takes the Ultra’s functionality even further with wider, backlit keycaps, customizable shortcut settings and adjustable standing angles. The Book Cover Keyboard features premium, antimicrobial polyurethane leather and a glass-coated touchpad that enables smooth and responsive typing.

Plus, Wireless Keyboard Share can link your connected keyboard to a Galaxy smartphone for easy typing across devices.

You also have plenty of ways to express your personal style with distinctive Galaxy Tab S8 accessories and add-ons, including a transparent Note View Cover that enables handwriting with S Pen, even while the cover protects the screen, and an eye-catching Strap Cover to hold your Tab S8 in the orientation that suits you best.

The Galaxy Tab S8 is partially constructed with plastic components repurposed from discarded fishing nets. The Galaxy Tab S8 devices also come in Samsung’s slimmest packaging to date, made from sustainably-sourced paper, which enables the company to lower emissions, and produce less waste.

Starting on 25th February 2022, Galaxy Tab S8 Series will be widely available in Samsung channels and major UK retailers with pre-orders beginning from 9th February. Samsung Care+, a dedicated accidental damage service protecting against screen damage and more, will be available for the Galaxy Tab S8 Series

Galaxy Tab S8 Series will be launched in two colours, Graphite and Silver.

Between 9th February and 24th February 2022, UK customers who pre-order can claim a free keyboard and a 12-month subscription to Disney+.
