It replaces the outgoing Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+, and it will launch on February 25, starting at $899.

This is also helped by model options of 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, or 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, as well as 1TB microSD card support.

Unlike the smaller 11-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 which has a LCD display, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ sports a Super AMOLED display with the famous deep blacks and low battery consumption.

The display resolution is 2800 x 1752, with a 120Hz refresh rate. The S Pen digitizer was also reworked for the Tab S8 tablets and is included with the tablet, supporting magnetic attachment and wireless charging from the back of the tablet.

There’s also four AKG tuned speakers on this tablet, as well as a new 12MP ultra-wide front camera, and dual 13MP and 6MP rear cameras with LED flash.

These cameras support 4K video recording, as well as the new video calling centric features that keeps users centered, adds optional backgrounds, and so on. Samsung has also added a new and improved video editing app that makes editing videos easier. Three mics with noise canceling features also helps providing good audio for either video calls or video clips.

Another upgrade is the faster new Wi-Fi 6E, up from the regular Wi-Fi 6 of the predecessor. Other connectivity options are 4G and 5G cellular models, or the Bluetooth 5.2 and USB C 3.2. port on all models.

The Tab S8+ battery capacity is a solid 10.090 mAh, which supports the Super Fast Charging 2.0 standard at up to 45W.

Sensors on this tablet are GPS, GLONASS, BDS, accelerometer, gyro, geo sensor, hall sensor, and RGB light sensor, and a fingerprint reader on the display.

The Wi-Fi model weighs 567 grams and is just 5.7mm thick. Color options are grey, silver, and pink gold.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ can be used as a 2-in-1 tablet with keyboard, and the keyboard is the same as the one for the Tab S7+.
