Samsung accidentally leaks its own Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra

Samsung’s upcoming flagship tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, isn’t likely to be officially revealed until Samsung’s next Galaxy Unpacked event, scheduled for February 8. It appears, however, that Samsung itself has leaked an image of the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra a little too early.

The image appeared on Samsung’s Bixby support page (spotted by 91Mobiles), and is still visible at writing time. It’s located in the section about multiple devices waking up when Bixby is invoked, and though the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra isn’t mentioned in the text, the image shows a tablet with a notch above the punch-hole camera, which doesn’t yet exist in Samsung’s official lineup and corresponds with leaked renders of the device.

But perhaps the biggest clue that this is indeed Samsung’s new tablet is in the image description on Samsung’s site, which reads: “Bixby voice wake up Galaxy S21 Ultra and not Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.”

It doesn’t get any clearer than that, folks.

As for what we can expect from the upcoming tablet, rumors say it’ll have a 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate (and a notch). It’ll be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and come with 8/12/16GB of RAM, and 128/256/512GB of storage. On the back, it’ll have a dual, 13/6-megapixel camera, and on the front you’ll find dual 12-megapixel cameras with 4K video recording capabilities.


Samsung will probably launch the Galaxy S22 next month

Other (rumored) features of note include a 11,500mAh battery, four speakers, a USB-C port, and a starting price of $1,100.
