How much will the anti iPad Pro cost

The latest rumors about Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra give us a preview of its technical specifications and especially on the price of the future competitor of iPad Pro

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is now ready to face its final challenge, that of measuring itself with the market. Samsung's top-of-the-line tablet will arrive along with its siblings Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8+, and at this point it's no longer a matter of months but weeks to take one home.

As suggested by the nomenclature adopted by Samsung, Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will be the top-of-the-line tablet from the South Korean company, an ideal candidate to become the anti iPad Pro, one of the best Android tablets ever. For this at least on the chip that will be chosen to equip it there are no doubts: it will be the best made available by the industry, in all likelihood the recent Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 presented by Qualcomm. Unlikely but not excluded that to optimize production at a time of global crisis of chips like the current one, Samsung may decide to adopt its Exynos 2200 that will equip the Galaxy S22, perhaps differentiating the chips according to sales markets.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, what it will look like

According to the latest rumors, however, Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will have up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of storage, an impressive amount for a tablet, especially the specification on RAM.

Samsung is a leading company when it comes to screens, probably the best ever, and it's no coincidence that even Apple turns to the men from Seoul for the displays of its iPhones. So the presence of one of the best screens currently available on Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is not in doubt.

According to the rumors, the tablet will have a 14.6-inch one (a laptop diagonal) with the likely presence of a notch to accommodate the dual selfie camera, an 8-megapixel wide-angle and a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, moreover capable of recording videos in 4K at 60 frames per second.

The little information currently available on Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra ends with the size. According to rumors it will be very thin, although for the moment there are no numbers indicating "how" thin it will be, and it will weigh just over 600 grams. In addition, it is highly likely that Samsung has designed specific accessories for the Ultra variant of its best tablet such as a keyboard to write comfortably on the go.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, how much will it cost

A tablet so complete and pushed on the level of technical features intuitively will not cost little. According to the latest rumors, the best equipped variant of Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will cost in Korea the equivalent of 1,000 euros, a figure certainly high but lower than indicated by previous rumors. In Italy, however, it should cost higher figures due to taxes and logistics costs.

To have a term of comparison, Galaxy Tab S7+ in Korea has an equivalent list price of about 860 euros, while the Italian price starts at 949 euros. Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and its siblings will be presented between January and February: in the first hypothesis they will share the stage with Galaxy S21 FE, in the second with Galaxy S22.
