The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra that has just been launched in Malaysia comes with a host of features that make it ideally suited to empower users to successfully navigate the new normal. 

Measuring in at just 5.5mm thin while packing a massive battery that ensures all-day battery life paired with a massive and luscious Super AMOLED display powered by a potent Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor with 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is ready to tackle any challenge. 


It’s just not hardware alone that makes it so powerful but the whole package including its very design and user interface. This is just the tip of the iceberg of what makes it one of, if not the most powerful tablets that money can buy in 2022. Here’s 8 awesome reasons why the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is the powerhouse tablet to get for 2022.

#1 Slim Design with Book Cover Keyboard

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is one of the slimmest tablets ever, measuring in at just 5.5mm thin on the side as the chassis is constructed of tough Armor Aluminum.

To add additional value, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra for Malaysia also features a free Book Cover keyboard case that protects it and also provides a responsive keyboard complete with a glass-coated touchpad and adjustable rear kickstand that makes it into a de facto laptop replacement.

#2 Improved S Pen stylus

The improved S Pen stylus bundled with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has shaved down the latency to just 2.8ms, allowing for a realistic writing experience that mimics a real pen. It also features Air Commands, allowing users to perform gesture controls to manipulate selected apps which comes in handy for video calls and selfies.

#3 Powerful DeX desktop mode for a desktop experience

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra runs on the latest Android 12 overlaid with OneUI 4.1 which offers a host of performance and functionality enhancements that make multitasking a cinch.

Not only does it have the ability to open up multiple apps and windows simultaneously in Multi-active Window mode, it also has an efficient Quick Share mode to easily share files too. Where it trumps the competition is that it features an innovative DeX mode which offers a desktop style interface that makes getting the job done easier and more efficient than ever.

#4 Massive 14.6-inch Super AMOLED 120Hz display

If seeing is believing, then the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is a sight to behold as it has a massive 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display, making it one of the largest displays ever mounted in a tablet. With breathtakingly slim 6.3mm bezels, the display has an impressive screen-to-body ratio and a tall 16:10 aspect ratio which makes it fantastic for enjoying content and work too in landscape mode.

The Super AMOLED display also has a ultra smooth 120Hz refresh rate to ensure that content and animations viewed onscreen are silky smooth, making it an audio visual feast for the senses with superb colour reproduction and pin-sharp detail for movies, games and more.

#5 Dual 12MP front cameras for video calls

Video calls are a part of the new normal as we stay in touch with distant friends and family while also getting work done with colleagues online via Zoom, MS Teams, Google Duo and the like. In that regard, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is ready to take your video calling experience up a notch as it has dual front 12MP cameras with the ability to capture up to 4K resolution video while Auto Framing tech keeps your visage in focus when you talk.

On that note, conversations are crisp and clear via the use of 3 microphones with noise reduction tech that reduces background noise by 50%. Add in a set of Quad speakers tuned by Dolby Atmos and you have a great way to make yourself seen and heard. Virtually that is.

#6 4 Years of Android Updates

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is the gold standard when it comes to firmware and security updates. Much like the Galaxy S22 series, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and its siblings the Galaxy Tab S8 and Tab S8+ are all eligible to a generous four years of Android updates which means that it’ll enjoy an Android 16 update in the future. That’s not all as it also has 5 years of security updates too so you’ll still be safe and secure for a long time to come.

#7 Powerful performance and expandable storage with microSD card slot

With great power comes the need for great storage and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra comes with the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor paired with 12GB RAM.

Storage needs are comprehensively handled with a generous 256GB of expandable storage to load up a ton of emails, work, apps and audio files, videos to edit and much more. While competing tablets are typically capped at just how much storage they have, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has an ace up its sleeve as it has a microSD card slot, allowing you to augment the memory with up to a 1TB microSD card. 

#8 Massive 11,200mAh battery with 45W fast charging

Productivity in a portable device is contingent on its potential battery life away from a wall charger and how fast it can charge when it gets the opportunity to do so. In both regards, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is a true powerhouse as it manages to cram in a mammoth 11,200mAh battery into its svelte 5.5mm thin casing that can tackle all day performance without breaking a sweat. It gets better as it also features speedy 45 Super Fast Charging support with a compatible Super Fast charger, allowing you to fully charge it to 100% in just 82 minutes.
