The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra has already been spotted in the Geekbench database. Details about its chipset and battery have also been leaked. A new leak today has revealed the Samsung tablet’s RAM and storage options.
According to a tipster on Twitter, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra will be available in three versions. The base model has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. But there will also be versions with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, and versions with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. So far, however, there have been no rumors that Samsung might drop the microSD card slot from the Tab S9 series. Additional memory can therefore possibly be added via an SD slot.
However, the entry-level model of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra only comes with 128 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The other two versions have the faster UFS 4.0 storage under the hood. The reason for this is that there are currently no 128 GB UFS 4.0 memory chips available on the world market. The same situation arose earlier this year with the 8/128 GB model of the Samsung Galaxy S23.
The regular Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 will also have at least two versions, one with 8GB of RAM and one with 12GB, according to the same source. However, there are currently no further details. The whole series is protected against dust and water according to IP67. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset, just like the entire Galaxy S23 series worldwide. In addition, the Galaxy Tab S9 is to be switched from an LCD display to an AMOLED panel.
