Looking for an ultra-fast tablet that gets you from work to play in one swift swipe? Check out the latest Samsung tablets. The Tab S8 Series comes with all the latest tech specs – including the most powerful processor in a Galaxy tablet and the fastest S Pen. This makes it one of the best tablets for drawing, planning, co-working, streaming, and more.

If you’re a multi-tasker, a socialiser, and you love the latest tech, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Series is perfect for you. You won’t have to worry about your device running out of battery or slowing you down, because it comes with the biggest battery in any Galaxy tablet.

So, what sets this latest Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Series apart from previous models? Here’s a sneak peek into the ultra-fast world of the Tab S8 Series – including the S8 Ultra and S8+.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Series vs Tab S7+: What’s new?

The Tab S8 Series comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 next-generation processor, which gives you PC-like power in the palm of your hand. This means you can take productivity to the next level and keep up to 3 apps running side-by-side, with Multi View. If you like being able to video call, while editing documents and streaming videos, then the all-powerful Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Series is the right choice.

The next new feature we love is the Tab S8 Ultra’s massive 11,200 mAh battery – the biggest battery ever on a Galaxy tablet, and a big upgrade from the S7+ 10,090 mAh battery. If you need your tab from dawn to dusk, this powerful device won’t go to sleep until you do.

Another clear difference is screen size. The Tab S8 Ultra is fitted with a large tablet screen measuring in at 14.6”. So, you get a fuller, more immersive experience, whether you’re streaming, gaming, or editing your videos. But the latest Samsung tablet display isn’t just bigger, it’s also better. With a Super AMOLED 120Hz 2960 x 1848 display you get vivid, bright colours and deep, rich black contrasts.

Last, but not least, you need to discover Samsung’s fastest S Pen. With this updated Samsung S Pen, you can unleash your creative side and turn your tablet into a sketchbook. In fact, it’s one of the best tablets for drawing. Or you can use it as a notebook – jotting down ideas on-the-go. With an ultra-low latency; natural, responsive feeling; and an ultra-precise nib, you can create pro-looking sketches and illustrations using the pre-installed Clip Studio Paint app. Plus, with the Samsung Ecosystem, you can connect the Clip Studio Paint app to your smartphone too – so you can use your phone as an artist’s palette and your tablet as the canvas.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra or S8+: What’s different?

So, which of the Tab S8 Series do you go for? If you’re an artist looking to get the best tablet for drawing, then a bigger screen might give you more room to play with. But equally, a compact screen might make your ‘travelling the world as a freelancer’ dream come true.

Ultimately, it’s all about utility. What will you use your tablet for? If you travel for work or leisure, then a lighter smaller device might be the way to go. If you’re not ready to compromise on that full cinematic experience, then a large screen tablet like the 16.4” Tab S8 Ultra will work better for you – while being great for editing videos or photos too.

The main difference between these devices – other than screen size – is battery life. All 3 come with incredibly powerful all-day batteries, but the S8 Ultra stands out with its 11,200 mAh battery. So, if you’re out and about all day and need to stay connected, you might want to consider the Tab S8 Ultra.

Finally, all 3 devices come with the super-fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. So, no matter which tablet you go for, you’ll always be able to multitask, create, connect, and explore with ease.
