Samsung will launch the next high-end tablet lineup soon. Some variants include Galaxy Tab S9, Galaxy Tab S9+, and Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. The devices were announced during today’s Galaxy Unpacked event in Korea. This Korean firm claims the devices have faster performance, improved durability (mainly thanks to the addition of water and dust resistance), more feature-rich software, and slightly improved cameras. And the most affordable tablet of three models, the Galaxy Tab S9, has received a massive screen upgrade.
The Galaxy Tab S9 series will have an 11-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen with QHD+ resolution, HDR10+, and support a 120Hz refresh rate. As you may know, its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab S8+ and the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra were launched with OLED screens, while the base Galaxy Tab S8 was stuck with an IPS LCD screen.
Thanks to what Samsung calls Vision Booster technology, the 11-inch OLED screen will have better quality while users watch movies, even under direct sunlight. A 120Hz refresh rate offers a smooth screen graphic; it’s very helpful for user interface, scrolling while browsing the web, or playing high-end games (naturally, support for a high refresh rate will depend on the game).
The tablet also has an S Pen, and users can charge this pen with a magnetic one that can be attached to the back of the device. The tablet supports an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, so users can use it anywhere without worrying too much about dust or water damage, a first for a flagship Samsung tablet.
Samsung has improved the speakers with its latest high-end tablet. The quad-speaker setup has 20% bigger than the Galaxy Tab S8. AKG has tuned the sound and features Dolby Atmos for immersive audio.
