Samsung's flagship tablet line has been refreshed for 2023 with the launch of the Galaxy Tab S9 series. Consisting of the Tab S9, the Tab S9 Plus, and the Tab S9 Ultra, while all three look very similar to their Tab S8 predecessors, they have one key difference. The S9 family is the only premium tablet line to pack IP68 water and dust resistance, adding poolside appeal to an already good-looking, pen-toting powerhouse family.

There's much more to these three tablets than an IP rating, with all three showcasing Dynamic AMOLED 2X displays with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ credentials. While the baby of the bunch clocks in with a respectable 11-inch screen, the Tab S9 Plus climbs up to 12.4 inches, and the Tab S9 Ultra's screen measures a huge 14.6 inches.
