Samsung is working on its new range of tablets: the Galaxy Tab S8. The Korean manufacturer has still not disclosed anything about its future products, but they have been leaking everywhere for a few weeks already. Today, these are photos that appear on the net.
It is the Sudhanshu Albhore leaker who reveals stolen photos of four products. So we have a photo of the Galaxy Tab S8, but also of its two versions: the Galaxy Tab S8 + and the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. A fourth tablet is presented: the SM-T270. The latter is an 8-inch tablet that does not yet have an official name.
Galaxy Tab S8: Samsung’s tablet finally shows itself in leaked photos
As we can see, the photos only show us a little. We see the tablets from the front and therefore cannot judge their design. However, they allow you to realize their size and see that the screen edges are always reduced, as on the Tab S7. Only the SM-T270 shows its back.

As a reminder, the Galaxy Tab S8 will be available in three versions of three different sizes: 11 inches, 12.4 inches and 14.6 inches. All should be equipped with an AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and use the “laptop” format by offering a separate keyboard. We should find a Snapdragon 888 inside.
The SM-T270 is expected to be sold outside the lineup. This small tablet should be 8 inches and be equipped with an Exynos 850 processor. This slate should attempt to reconnect with the “Mini” terminal market, which is slowly starting to rise from its ashes.
For the moment, Samsung has not given a date for a possible conference. However, the presentation of these products should not delay any longer. It is recalled that some leaks evoked a delay in the design of these devices following an epidemic of COVID in the premises of Samsung.
Samsung retains second place in the tablet market
In the third quarter, global tablet shipments were down 15% year-on-year. According to analysts at the Canalys agency, this applies to sales of any tablet computer in all regions of the world; with the exception of the Asia-Pacific. Although the first place in terms of sales is occupied by Apple and Samsung shipments have dropped markedly, the Korean company is still among the leaders.
So, Samsung remains in second place. In three months, it delivered 7.2 million tablets; in total, 37.7 million tablets were sold worldwide in the third quarter. At the same time, in the corresponding period of last year, 9.03 million Samsung tablets were sold in the world.
