Galaxy Tab S9 leak reveals first official look at the tablet trio
It seems that Samsung might be planning to make its Galaxy Tab S line water-resistant.
The countdown is on for Samsung’s next Unpacked event, slated for late July. We anticipate the unveiling of three new devices at this launch: the Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, and the Series 6 Watch
A recent leak provided a good look at the upcoming Z Flip 5, Z Fold 5, and Watch 6, including new colors and upgraded device changes. Now we have a Galaxy Tab S9 Series leak, and it’s all set to join others at the Unpacked event.
The Galaxy Tab S9 is going OLED
The latest Galaxy Tab S9 leak comes courtesy from renowned leaker, SnoopyTech. Images of the three variants of the Galaxy Tab S9 – Standard, Plus, and Ultra – were posted to Twitter, all showcased side by side.
According to these images, it appears Samsung has decided to stick with their existing branding.
When it comes to the display, the 11-inch Galaxy Tab S9 is gearing up for a major upgrade. This year, it’s slated to sport an OLED display, a feature that was previously exclusive to only the Plus and Ultra models last year
The image also reveals the inclusion of the S Pen, which isn’t a shocker. The S Pen has been a staple with every Galaxy Tab S since the Tab S6. However, what might be a letdown for some is the persistent notch on the 14.6-inch Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra
That being said, the promotional image might be teasing another upgrade. The splash graphic behind the tablets could be a hint that Samsung’s mainstream tablets are about to get a water-resistance feature.
Earlier rumors suggest an IP67 rating for the Tab S9 series. While this isn’t a groundbreaking feature, it’s still noteworthy as it means the device can withstand being submerged in up to 1 meter of water for as long as 30 minutes
Beyond the display upgrade and the speculated water resistance, there’s not much we know yet about the Galaxy Tab S9 series.
However, Samsung’s tablets have consistently stood toe-to-toe with Apple’s iPads when it comes to performance. Therefore, it wouldn’t be a stretch to anticipate an update to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.
