Leaked Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 renders show sleek design similar to the S7

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Tab S8 has just leaked in new renders. Coming from prominent leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, more commonly known as OnLeaks on Twitter, these renders look a lot like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 that preceded it.

Despite Android’s lackluster reputation in the tablet market, Samsung has worked hard to build up a respectable slate of tablets. These include both the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7 FE in recent times. With high-resolution displays, stylus support, and clean design, these tablets manage to match and rival the iPad on a pure hardware basis, though the available app library and screen optimization need work.

The new renders show off a very sleek-looking tablet in silver. There’s a dual camera on the rear, like with the Tab S7, and the front has very slim bezels. There’s also a slot for attaching the S Pen, useful for those who are artists or note-takers.

Specs-wise, the tablet is said to have an 11-inch 2K display complete with a 120HZ refresh rate. It’ll be powered by the Snapdragon 888 chip, with the RAM starting at around 8GB and going up to 12GB RAM for the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus. These specs come from a relatively unknown YouTube source, the Galox, so don’t necessarily take it at face value.

The Galaxy Tab S8 was supposed to launch in 2021, but the chip shortage hitting the entire market is affecting it as well, and the latest rumor is that the slate has been pushed back to 2022. If Samsung does end up launching the S8 Tab in early 2022, it will find itself in good company, with the S21 (FE), and the S22 also expected at the same time. Samsung may very well end up with a stronger lineup than it originally planned.

The Galaxy S24 is stealing one of my favorite Google Pixel 8 features

We're barely two weeks into 2024, but it's already time to talk about three of the biggest smartphone releases of the entire year. Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S24 family, including the typical trio of phones. This year, it's the Galaxy S24, S24 Plus, and S24 Ultra.

There's plenty to discuss with these phones — from the refined designs to Samsung's new Galaxy AI features. But there's another detail I want to shine the spotlight on, one that was barely mentioned during my pre-briefing with Samsung. We're talking about software updates.

This is the best Samsung Galaxy S24 leak yet

It's almost the start of a new year. How can you tell? Because Samsung smartphone leaks are everywhere. Just one day after a huge Galaxy S24 price leak, we now have new renders of all three S24 phones. And these aren't just any renders — they're the best ones we've seen yet.

Samsung Galaxy S24 renders have been appearing online for months now, but they often come with a caveat: They're based on CAD designs, are low-resolution files, or have unsightly watermarks plastered all over them. That's not the case with these newest S24 renders.

Is the Samsung Galaxy S23 still worth it 10 months later?

It’s crazy to think that 2023 will be wrapping up in just a few weeks from now, and a new year will be upon us faster than we think. One of the first major flagship phones that came out in 2023 was the Samsung Galaxy S23, which launched in February alongside its Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra siblings.

I gave the Samsung Galaxy S23 a positive review when it first came out, but there have been a lot of new flagship phones from competitors since then. Samsung is also expected to reveal its successor, the Galaxy S24 lineup, early in 2024.
