The leaked images and information leave us with details about the display specs, battery capacities and the box contents of each of the tablets waiting to arrive next week.
At the top of the line is the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, which is reportedly a 14.6-inch tablet with a super AMOLED, 2960x1848p display featuring 120Hz refresh rate. Weighing 728g, this mammoth tablet will be powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Running the Tab S8 Ultra will be an 11,200mAh battery supporting 45W fast charging. Interestingly the tablet with S Pen compatibility, USB-C charging, will feature microSD card slot.
Tab S8+ is next on the leaker’s list. It would arrive in a 12.4-inch Super AMOLED, 2800×1752 pixel resolution display. Touting 120Hz screen refresh rate, this 572g tablet will also draw its power from Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.

The entry-level member in the series, the Galaxy Tab S8 is no less on features.

Whether you like it or not, all three devices will arrive without a charger in the box.
