According to the latest rumors, Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Tab S8 series early next year but, if this new leak is legit, most of the surprise of the reveal has been spoiled, as we have a first look at the upcoming tablet from the company, thanks to OnLeaks and Zouton US.
As you can see from the images, the Galaxy Tab S8 sports a huge display on the front with the front camera, built into the center of the right bezel. The tablet does sport a notch, which will host the front camera.
The tablet has a 11-inch IPS LCD display with 1600×2560 pixels resolution and will measure 253.75 x 165.30 x 6.24mm.
It’s expected that this tablet will surpass its predecessor, the S7, in terms of display performance as well, which was of 120Hz.
Under the hood, according to the sources above, we’ll find a Snapdragon 888 chipset with 8GB RAM and 128GB worth of storage that can be expanded all the way up to 1TB, which is pretty impressive.
A side-mounted fingerprint sensor will make an appearance as well as a Face ID feature, available via the 8MP camera set up in the notch.
Moving to the back, we see a dual camera module positioned in the upper left corner, perpendicular to the Samsung logo. The module hosts 12MP and 5MP sensors.
In addition to the massive storage you can opt for, Samsung has also added a mammoth battery of 8,000mAh, which comes with 45W fast charging via USB-C.
Other features include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0 and GPS with GLONASS.
In terms of pricing and availability, we’ll find that out closer to the release date. However, we can still make some educated guesses, if we look at the price tag of the Galaxy Tab S7, which had a starting cost of $649.99.
Most likely, thanks to all the battery and storage improvements, its successor will come with a price tag that starts at $842.69. Samsung has always increased the prices of every Tab iteration thus far and we expect that the Tab S8 will not be an exception.
