The biggest display is reserved for the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, which ships with a 120Hz 14.6-inch WQXGA Super AMOLED display with 2,960×1,848 pixels resolution. The S Pen stylus will be supported by all three tablets.
Powering the three devices is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Mobile Platform which will be equipped with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. The leaked images also indicate a possibility of the tablets getting an option for expandable storage.
In terms of the battery capacities the Galaxy Tab S8, Plus, and Ultra will get 8,000mAh, 10,090mAh, and 11,200mAh battery capacities, respectively. Luckily, these huge battery packs will support 45W fast charging, which can come in handy for some quick charges. However, it is unlikely that the devices would be bundled with a charger, a Type C to Type C cable is expected to be packed inside the box.
