The Galaxy Tab S8 release date is upon us. Unveiled at the last Samsung Unpacked 2022 event, Samsung's new lineup consists of three tablets: the Galaxy Tab S8 ($699.99), Galaxy Tab S8 Plus ($899.99), and the new Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra ($1,099.99). 

All three tablets are powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU and include 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage as base configurations. (Storage capacity can be expanded up to 1TB via a microSD card). The entire line up also packs quad speakers with Dolby Atmos support, ultra-wide cameras, and three mics with built-in noise cancellation. 

The star of the lineup is the new Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. It boasts a 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display (2960 x 1848 resolution) with 120Hz refresh rate. It also has dual 12MP front cameras and a new improved S Pen that uses a prediction algorithm for ultra-low latency. (This delivers a smoother writing experience).  

If you're wondering how to preorder the Galaxy Tab S8, you've come to the right place. Samsung is taking Galaxy Tab S8 preorders as we speak, though it's temporarily paused orders on the standard Tab S8 and Tab S8 Ultra, citing heavy demand. (The Galaxy Tab S8 Plus remains available for preorder.) There are even a few early Galaxy Tab S8 preorder deals you can take advantage right now. Just remember, all three tablets will be available in stores on February 25.
