Samsung has revealed the latest in its Galaxy Tab series today as part of the latest Galaxy Unpacked event. Today, the company introduced the all-new Galaxy Tab lineup, including the massive 14.6″ Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra definitely stole the show in terms of Samsung’s new tablet releases. It features a crisp, OLED screen with an impressive 2,960 x 1,848 resolution and 120Hz refresh rate.

The 14.6-inch screen means it’s about 20 percent larger than the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus and bigger than any iPad model that you can find. It features two front-facing 12-megapixel cameras (one ultrawide and one standard wide) that sit in a small notch that takes up a little bit of screen real estate.
