Samsung Galaxy Tab S10: Expected Release Date, Price, Specifications, and Upgrades

Samsung Galaxy Tab S10 release date

Samsung's forthcoming Galaxy Tab S10 lineup is poised to continue the company's legacy of excellence in the tablet market. Following the success of the Galaxy Tab S9 series, Samsung aims to build on this momentum by delivering competitive tablets that can rival the latest iPads.

As of mid-2024, limited information about the Galaxy Tab S10 tablet family is available. However, a crucial detail suggests that the range might face delays, particularly with the Ultra model, reportedly due to development challenges. 

Stay tuned as we gather all the leaks and news surrounding the Galaxy Tab S10 series, providing comprehensive coverage once these details emerge.

When can we expect the launch of the Galaxy Tab S10?

The previous year saw the introduction of the Galaxy Tab S9 series. While it's reasonable to anticipate a successor this summer, Samsung's tablet releases typically follow a longer timeline between generations. 

Unlike the Galaxy phone lineups, which often see refreshes every 12 months, the company's larger devices tend to have longer intervals, with launches occurring less frequently than every 18 months.

Hence, it's unlikely that the Galaxy Tab S10 series will debut this summer alongside the Galaxy 

Z Fold 6 and the Galaxy Z Flip 6. Instead, our anticipation leans towards an early 2025 release window for the forthcoming Galaxy Tab S10 family.

Traditionally, Samsung unveils its high-end tablets during the summer season. We are still determining if the Galaxy Tab S10 generation will deviate from this pattern. 

We predict that the Galaxy Tab S10 lineup will be officially revealed on stage in late July 2024 or early August 2024, with a potential market launch approximately two weeks later.

Speculations, backed by insights from prominent leaker @kro, indicate that the Galaxy Tab S10, Tab S10 Plus, and the Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra could encounter delays due to “development challenges with the Ultra model.” 

This scenario introduces the potential that the Galaxy Tab S10 series may not be unveiled this year.

Device Family Announcement Market Release

Galaxy Tab S9 July 26, 2023 August 11, 2023
Galaxy Tab S8 February 9, 2022 February 25, 2022
Galaxy Tab S7 August 5, 2020 August 21, 2020

What's the expected price range for the Galaxy Tab S10?

At this early stage, concrete rumors regarding the pricing of the upcoming Samsung tablets are scarce. However, significant price hikes or reductions aren't expected based on historical trends. 

Likely, the Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra, Galaxy Tab S10+, and Galaxy Tab S10 will be priced similarly to their predecessors, as Samsung aims to maintain pricing consistency across generations.

Naming conventions and models for the Galaxy Tab S10 series

As of the current understanding, the Galaxy Tab S10 series will include familiar models such as the Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra, Galaxy Tab S10+, and Galaxy Tab S10, potentially accompanied by one or two variants under the Galaxy Tab S10 FE lineup. It's improbable that the existing naming structure will remain the same.

What can we expect from the camera setup on the Galaxy Tab S10?

The Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra is expected to remain the flagship tablet in terms of camera capabilities. It's likely to feature a dual rear camera setup similar to the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra, comprising a 13MP wide-angle lens and an 8MP ultra-wide lens. 

For front-facing cameras, which are crucial for tablet usage, it's hoped that the Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra will also adopt dual 12MP cameras.

The Galaxy Tab S10+ is anticipated to retain the dual 13MP wide + 8MP ultra-wide camera setup from its predecessor, along with a single 12MP front-facing camera. 

Meanwhile, the Galaxy Tab S10 will continue with a single 13MP rear camera and a 12MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls.

Given the significance of AI in the Galaxy S24 smartphone family's cameras, it wouldn't be surprising if Samsung integrated AI features into the Galaxy Tab S10 series as well.

What storage options can we anticipate for the Galaxy Tab S10?

Anticipated storage configurations for the upcoming Galaxy Tab S10 tablets will likely mirror those of their predecessors. The highest-end variant, the Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra, could offer up to a terabyte of storage and 16GB of RAM to accommodate intensive multitasking requirements. 

Conversely, the entry-level model, the Galaxy Tab S10, may begin with 128GB of built-in storage and a standard 8GB of RAM.

Expected storage and RAM configurations for the Galaxy Tab S10 lineup:

Galaxy Tab S10:

  • 128GB storage with 8GB RAM
  • 256GB storage with 12GB RAM

Galaxy Tab S10+:

  • 256GB storage with 12GB RAM
  • 512GB storage with 12GB RAM

Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra:

  • 256GB storage with 12GB RAM
  • 512GB storage with 12GB RAM
  • 1TB storage with 16GB RAM

Design aspects of the Galaxy Tab S10

Crafted entirely from aluminum, Samsung's flagship tablets boast a sophisticated and robust design, presenting a compelling alternative to Apple's premium iPads. Enhanced with IP68 dust and water resistance, these devices offer notable durability.

There needs to be more indication that Samsung will deviate from its established design aesthetics and standard feature offerings.

Analyzing the similarities between the Galaxy Tab S9 and Galaxy Tab S8 generations, it's reasonable to expect a continuation of the established design language with the upcoming Galaxy Tab S10 series. 

Significant redesigns are unlikely, with slimming down bezels being a potential improvement. While previous Galaxy Tab S iterations favored a more understated aesthetic, diversifying the color palette with livelier options could inject freshness and vibrancy into the lineup without compromising elegance.

The display features of the Galaxy Tab S10

Regarding display sizes, there's little chatter in the rumor mill. Currently, Samsung offers tablets across various size tiers, leaving little room for speculation.

The spotlight shines on the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra, boasting an impressive 14.6-inch display, a feature likely to continue with the Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra. 

The Galaxy Tab S10+, expected to sport a 12.4-inch display, distinguishes between size and portability, earning it a spot as a top consideration. For those prioritizing compactness, the 11-inch display of the Galaxy Tab S10 could be the ideal choice.

All these tablets are anticipated to feature Dynamic AMOLED displays, ensuring vibrant colors, excellent contrast, and wide viewing angles. With a refresh rate reaching up to 120Hz, users can expect an incredibly smooth scrolling experience.

Battery specifications for the Galaxy Tab S10

Model Battery Size
Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra 11,200 mAh
Galaxy Tab S10+ 10,090 mAh
Galaxy Tab S10 8,400 mAh
Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra 11,200 mAh
Galaxy Tab S9+ 10,900 mAh
Galaxy Tab S9 8,400 mAh

Assuming Samsung maintains consistency in the design and construction of its forthcoming tablets, we can anticipate battery capacities similar to those in the Galaxy Tab S9 series. 

With more powerful processors, it's hoped that the Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra, Galaxy Tab S10+, and Galaxy Tab S10 will offer enhanced battery performance compared to their predecessors.

Regarding charging capabilities, the Galaxy Tab S10 lineup will likely continue to support the 45W charging seen in previous models. However, there's potential for Samsung to introduce even faster charging technology, particularly on the premium Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra model.

Features and software offerings of the Galaxy Tab S10

Expected to debut with One UI, a sub-iteration of One UI 6, the Galaxy Tab S10 may not immediately incorporate One UI 7 upon release. Given that One UI 7 is anticipated to be based on Android 15, which might launch later in 2024, the Galaxy Tab S10 could potentially miss this update.

Hardware specifications and features of the Galaxy Tab S10

Anticipated to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, the upcoming Samsung tablets may also have the option of using Samsung's latest in-house Exynos chipset, the Exynos 2400. 

While the Exynos chipset typically offers comparable performance to its Snapdragon counterparts, there's sometimes a slight negative perception associated with it. 

It's possible that the Galaxy Tab S10 could be equipped with the Exynos 2400, while the Galaxy Tab S10+ and Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra might opt for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.
