European prices and release dates revealed for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra as whole Galaxy Tab S8 series is leaked by major retailer
Two of Amazon's European subsidiaries have published Galaxy Tab S8, Galaxy Tab S8+ and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra listings early. While the listings have appeared a day after Samsung included an image of the Tab S8 Ultra on a support page, Amazon posted these listings as early as January 13. Unsurprisingly, the listings confirm numerous details about the upcoming tablets, although most had already been leaked by WinFuture.
According to the listings we have seen, the Tab S8+ will start at €961.00, and the Tab S8 Ultra at €1,159.34. As the screenshots below show, both prices are for 128 GB and Wi-Fi-only configurations. Also, these prices include VAT, which runs to 20% on most products in France. Hence, the entry-level Tab S8 Ultra will cost €966.12 before taxes, approximately US$1,095. By contrast, the 5G model will cost €1,308.10, including VAT, a 12.83% uplift on the Wi-Fi-only model. In summary, Amazon France has revealed the following Galaxy Tab S8 series prices:
- Galaxy Tab S8+ (128 GB/Wi-Fi) - €961.00
- Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (128 GB/Wi-Fi) - €1,159.34
- Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (128 GB/5G) - €1,308.10
In saying that, there is no indication that Samsung will directly convert these Euros prices, less VAT, to USD. Incidentally, Pocketnow has discovered listings for the entire Galaxy Tab S8 series on Amazon Italy. We have been unable to confirm this, but the images match those on Amazon France. Based on the images published by Pocketnow, Samsung will release the Galaxy Tab S8 and Tab S8+ in pink and silver and not just the black colourway that has leaked previously. However, it appears that Samsung will only sell the Tab S8 Ultra in a single colour.
Samsung is expected to reveal the Galaxy Tab S8 series on February 8 or 9 at a Galaxy Unpacked event, where it will also unveil the Galaxy S22 series. Additionally, Amazon France confirms that Samsung will release at least the Tab S8+ and Tab S8 Ultra on February 25. Pocketnow mentions this previously unknown date, so we expect February 25 to be the entire series' European launch date.
