The freshly-launched Galaxy Tab S8 series has proven so popular that two-thirds of its variants have "sold out" on Samsung.com in the US. Well, not exactly: the OEM has announced that it is "pausing" their pre-order event while it deals with the demand for the tablets, which of course includes their new, top-end 14.6-inch SKU.

Samsung seemed to bank heavily on the resurging success of tablets in its development of the Galaxy Tab S8 series, so much so in fact that it gave the flagship Ultra variant an unprecedented 14.6-inch display. Now, it seems to have paid off, as the OEM is apparently nearly out of units to pre-order via its own website in the US.

The middle-child (yet still quite premium) Galaxy Tab S8+ is still available on samsung.com/us. However, its vanilla and Ultra siblings' buttons on the same page read "Sold Out" at the moment. However, according to Samsung, this may not exactly be the case.

The company claims to have simply "paused" pre-orders for those variants due to "overwhelming demand in the last 48 hours". However, it also assures customers that it will "work quickly to meet customer excitement and demand".

Nevertheless, the tablets are still available on other platforms. The Galaxy Tab S8 can still be pre-ordered on Amazon, whereas the Tab S8 Ultra is in stock on Best Buy...unless you want the top-end 16GB RAM variant, that is: it is still on the way at the moment.
