Samsung will launch the Galaxy S22 series in the next month. That’s what the rumors are pointing to with a speculative February 8 launch date. The company is expected to unveil the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra. According to new reports, the company may also use this opportunity to unveil its Galaxy Tab S8 series. Since the Exynos 2200 has already been revealed, then we expect the company to use the new event to focus only on new products and not hardware. The new report comes straight from the tipster Max Jambor, who expects the entire flagship tablet lineup to come alongside the Galaxy S22 smartphones.

Unfortunately, the tipster didn’t confirm the launch date, so we’re still working with the speculative February launch window. If the next Galaxy Unpacked data is correct, then we expect Samsung to start sending invites within the next 10 days. The company may adopt a virtual-only reveal for smartphones given the recent rise in the COVID-19 cases across the world.
All the eyes will be pointed to the new Galaxy S22 series, especially the Galaxy S22 Ultra which is making big changes in design and specs to arrive as a hybrid between Galaxy Note and S series. However, tablets enthusiasts will be also pointed to the event to see what Samsung has in tow for its lineup of flagship Galaxy Tablets.
Galaxy Tab S8 series specifications
All three Samsung tablets will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The top-tier Tab S8 Ultra will come with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of Internal Storage. All three tablets will come with a dual-camera setup on the back. There will be a 13 MP main camera and a 6 MP ultrawide snapper. For video calls, there is a 16 MP camera right edge of the tablet. The Ultra model will also have a secondary 12 MP front-facing snapper and probably it’s the one with the notch.
In terms of display, the standard Galaxy Tab S8 will have an 11-inch screen. The tablet will also have an LTPS TFT screen with a Full HD+ resolution. The Galaxy Tab S8+ will pack a 12.7-inch AMOLED display with a WQXGA+ (2,800 x 1,752) resolution. The high-end Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will pack a 14.6-inch WQXGA+ AMOLED display.
Under the hood, the vanilla model will come with an 8,000 mAh battery, whereas the Galaxy Tab S8+ will pack a 10,090 mAh battery. The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will pack a larger 11,200 mAh battery with 45 W fast-charging support. Other details, unfortunately, are still scarce at this point.
