The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ has been available since mid-April 2022, so we are rapidly approaching the successor. While there is no official information yet, at least the first renders of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9+ have surfaced today. You can’t see any antenna lines in the pictures, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any.
According to the renderings, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9+ is apparently developing into a rather small update compared to its predecessor – at least on the outside. The display size is still 12.4 inches and the resolution is 1,752 x 2,800 pixels. The embedded fingerprint sensor, four speakers, two rear cameras and even the dimensions are also unchanged. Of course, there’s still S Pen support and a designated magnetic area on the back for storing the pen.
Like the S8+ from last year, the Galaxy Tab S9+ continues to charge via USB-C 3.2 with 45 watts. Samsung installs the cameras on the back in individual, circular cutouts, just like in the Galaxy S23 series. The new tablet might also have a second front camera for landscape mode video calling. So far, the second selfie camera was reserved for the top model Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (review).
Technical data did not appear in this leak. However, it is highly probable that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9+ will get the currently fastest Android chipset – the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. In addition, Samsung could update the storage options as with the Galaxy S23+ and upgrade to 256 GB even in the smallest configuration. Also, there are already rumors about IP67 dust and water resistance.
