Samsung’s flagship Galaxy Tab S series got two updates last year, but for 2022, it’s been updated with three new tablets, the Galaxy Tab S8, S8 Plus and S8 Ultra. Just like the Galaxy S22 line that’s been announced alongside it, the most interesting of the three is the Ultra, with its laptop-beating 14.6-inch screen, and optimized UI to take full advantage of the accompanying S Pen and ample power inside.

While the line hasn’t seen a design refresh at first glance – the three tablets are metal-backed, glass-fronted slivers, all three sport new, more robust frames made from Samsung’s Armor Aluminum. They’re all slender, with the Ultra being the thinnest of the three at 5.5mm, which is about 0.4mm thinner than the iPad Pro.
