Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra: Giant tablet to feature a 14.6-inch OLED display, almost a 3K resolution and a huge battery
@UniverseIce has delivered more details about the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. Earlier this week, @FrontTron claimed that Samsung would use the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra to debut BRS technology, aimed at reducing bezel thickness between the tablet's display and chassis.
According to @UniverseIce, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will also feature a 14.6-inch display, specifically the SM-X906B. Incidentally, @DSCCRoss has reiterated this, adding that Samsung plans to equip the tablet with an OLED panel. @UniverseIce states that the panel will operate at 2,960 x 1,848 pixels too, corresponding to a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 239 PPI. In other words, the tablet will almost have a 3K display; 3K at 16:10 would be 3,000 x 1,875 pixels, for reference, not 2,960 x 1,848.
@UniverseIce claims that the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has an 11,500 mAh battery, for the record. While the post has garnered plenty of attention on Twitter, it barely expands on specifications that leaked in May. In fact, the only new details that @UniverseIce has provided is the tablet's model number and display resolution. The latter could have been guessed though, assuming that the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra retains the 16:10 aspect ratio from the Galaxy Tab S7 series.
If May's leak is correct, then the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra should utilise an OLED panel that runs at 120 Hz. The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is expected to launch alongside the Galaxy S22 series with an Exynos 2200, which could make it Android's answer to the iPad Pro range.
