We can never take leaks and rumours at face value, albeit they are available from reliable sources. After all, the Apple Watch Series 7’s expected flatter design clothed to be a complete dud, despite famous tipsters supporting the idea. Thereupon in mind, the leaks about the Galaxy S22 series aren’t too reassuring. It seems almost ironic, then, that the Galaxy Tab S8 is beginning to look more attractive, especially the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra that’s shaping up to be somewhat of a laptop replacement, a minimum of as far because the rumours go.
There will never be an end to the talk about whether large “pro” tablets can replace laptops, but there’s not stopping manufacturers from making them anyway. Although Android has always been criticized for its lack of notable apps for creative work, Samsung continues to push its tablets forward, with additional features like S Pen support, floating windows, and particularly Samsung DeX to form up for it.
Pro tablets, however, could be getting more prominent, with Apple rumoured to be planning on its most significant iPad Pro yet. As if trying to beat it to the punch, Samsung is now believed to possess a Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra within the works, ready for an early 2022 debut. Quite just the massive 14.6-inch screen size; however, the leaked specs for the ultra-large tablet sound very impressive.
That large screen, for instance, is now believed to sport 2960×1848 pixels, definitely going beyond 2K resolution. Additionally, previous leaks have given it a 120Hz refresh rate, ideal not only for gaming or content consumption but also for performing on digital images and videos. All of those will be enabled by an outsized 11,500 mAh battery, one among the most important to be put inside a mobile device.
Previous leaks have also given the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, dual 5MP and 8MP front cameras that match dual cameras on the rear. It’ll be ironic and a touch tragic if the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra finishes up overshadowing even the Galaxy S22 Ultra next year, with Samsung’s flagship smartphones sounding more like an incremental upgrade in every new rumour.
