Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ and S8 Ultra to go into mass production with OLED displays in late January
The Galaxy Tab S8 series has already leaked several times, most notably in several high-quality render images. Arguably, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is the most controversial of the three tablets, thanks to a notch that escapes the Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8 Plus.
Now, Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, has indicated when Samsung will start mass-producing its next flagship tablet, which is not due to arrive until sometime in early 2022. Apparently, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will enter mass production in late January 2022, seemingly alongside the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus. Based on this information, Samsung is likely preparing to launch the Galaxy Tab S8 series in February or March, possibly to dovetail the Galaxy S22 series at the next Galaxy Unpacked event.
Young also states that the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will feature OLED, matching the current Galaxy Tab S7 Plus. While the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus is yet to leak, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is believed to utilise a 14.6-inch panel, making it much larger than any competing tablets. The entire Galaxy Tab S8 series is tipped to support on-device S Pen charging though, along with dual rear-facing cameras.
