Amazon Italy listed the Galaxy Tab S8 series on their website, but took it down as soon as they realised their mistake. Luckily, the folks over at Pocketnow were quick enough to grab everything they could. The e-commerce website posted images of all three variants of the Galaxy Tab S8, and also included their specifications.
The vanilla Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will be available in three colour options, whereas the Ultra variant will be sold only in a Black colorway. All three tablets feature slim bezels, but the Ultra will come with a notch at the front for its selfie camera. The latter was already known thanks to the exclusive renders shared by us.
