Samsung has presented three new top tablets with the Galaxy Tab S9, S9 Plus and S9 Ultra. Even though the big hit is missing compared to the predecessors, the features hardly leave anything to be desired. For the first time, the Android tablets including the S Pen are water- and dust-proof. We have summarized everything important in the video above.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S9, S9 Plus and S9 Ultra unveiled
As expected, Samsung has updated its top tablets after one year. The standard, Plus and Ultra variants of the Galaxy Tab S9 differ from the predecessors in detail, but customers should not expect a real revolution. One new feature is that all models and also the stylus have an IP68 certification, which means they are officially designed to be water- and dust-resistant.
All models feature an AMOLED display with a variable refresh rate between 60 and 120 Hz. The Galaxy Tab S9 has a diagonal of 11 inches, the Plus version has a screen size of 12.4 inches, and the Ultra tablet has a screen size of 14.6 inches. The large screen is also noticeable in the weight. The Ultra model weighs 737 grams in the 5G version. The Plus tablet weighs up to 586 grams and the standard version up to 500 grams.
Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 provides the performance in all Galaxy Tab S9 models. The hard drive of 128 GB to 1 TB (ultra model) can be expanded via microSD card. Android 13 is preinstalled. The working memory is 8 to 16 GB. All tablets are available in WLAN and 5G versions, and Samsung also offers LTE versions in some regions. The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the display.
According to Samsung, it has collaborated with Google to make apps look better on the large displays. 15 Google apps have been optimized for the display. The popular iPad app Good Notes is also exclusively available for the first time.
Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra with giant battery
The tablets differ significantly in terms of battery. The Galaxy Tab S9 comes with 8,400 mAh, the Plus model with 10,090 mAh. As expected, the Ultra model has the highest capacity of 11,200 mAh.
Samsung once again offers a Smart Book Cover that can be used to position the tablet vertically and horizontally. A Book Cover Keyboard is also available for sale. New is the stronger Outdoor Cover, which is supposed to offer even more protection.
