Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, Galaxy Tab S8+, and Galaxy Tab S8 are expected to be the upcoming flagship tablet models from the company. Ahead of their official announcement, their pricing and specifications have been allegedly leaked. The three tablets have been codenamed Basquiat 3, Basquiat 2, and Basquiat 1, respectively. Just like last year's Galaxy Tab S7+ and Galaxy Tab S7 models, the upcoming Galaxy Tab S8 series is said to feature 120Hz refresh rate displays. The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and Galaxy Tab S8+ are said to come with OLED displays while the Galaxy Tab S8 may come with an LTPS TFT display.
The specifications and pricing for the three alleged Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series tablets were shared by a tipster on Twitter. All three models are expected to feature the same rear camera setup, quad speakers, and 45W fast charging support. They are offered in Wi-Fi, LTE, and 5G options, as per the tweet that was first spotted by Gizmochina. The publication cites South Korea's Naver.com for the information but appeared blank when Gadgets 360 tried to access it. It should be noted that Samsung has not officially shared any information about the Galaxy Tab S8 series so this information should be taken with a pinch of salt.
