Samsung to Release Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra with Leaked Specs
Samsung is planning on releasing the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra along with the Galaxy S23 Ultra, according to leaks from tipster Revegnus on Twitter. The tablet will be powered by an overclocked Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset, delivering a faster and more efficient performance than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC in last year’s Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy comes with an Adreno 740 GPU running at 719MHz, which is 5.7% faster than the 680MHz of the regular version. Additionally, the X-3 core runs at 3.36GHz, a 5% boost from the normal clock speed. Revegnus referred to the chip as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2+ but meant the overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy.
According to the tipster, the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra will feature a 10880mAh battery, 3% smaller than last year’s Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, but more energy-efficient. The tablet is expected to have a large 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2960 x 1848 and a 120Hz refresh rate.
The tablet is also expected to have the same LPDDR5 RAM capacity as the 2022 Ultra model, available in 8GB, 12GB, and 16GB variants. The previous model had a dual-camera setup (13MP primary and 6MP ultra-wide) at the back and a 12MP front-facing camera for selfies.
