Samsung has released the Galaxy Tab S8, a successor to this year’s Tab S7. Although there have been many changes, the overall design of both tablets is very similar. Our colleague AndrzejTokarskic compares the models and explains why switching to Galaxy Tab S8 is worthwhile.
Performance improvements are not yet evident
Samsung has installed the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Generation 1.8 GB RAM, 128 or 256GB storage in its Galaxy Tab S8. This makes it slightly faster than the one-and-a-half-year-old Galaxy Tab S7, at least in benchmarks. It runs on the Snapdragon 865+, has 6GB RAM and up to 228GB storage. There is no performance difference between the two tablets in everyday tasks at this time.
This applies to PUBG Mobile and Fortnite. The cameras have minor differences: the Galaxy Tab S7’s front camera has 8 megapixels while the S8 has 12 megapixel ultra-wide angle. The resolution of the main camera is 13 megapixels. The ultra-wide angle of the back camera on the Galaxy Tab S8 has 6 megapixels.
S8 Will get Longer updates
Both tablets are identical in design. Both tablets have a metal case, a USB Type C port, and four speakers. Each display measures 11 inches and has a resolution of 2560x 1600 pixels. They also support 120 Hertz. The S Pen has not been modified. Both tablets run Android12. However, the Galaxy Tab S8 runs Samsung’s OneUIUI UI slightly more recently. It is important to keep in mind that Samsung will continue to update the Tab S8 for many years to come.
