Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8+ has been available since mid-April 2022, and we’re fast approaching mid-April 2023. So it may be time for a replacement to show up on the scene, and guess what? That’s exactly what happened. Not officially, at least not yet, but still.
Ladies and gentlemen, behold the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S9+ in all its glory in some CAD-based renders! Do note that while antenna lines aren’t pictured, that doesn’t mean there won’t be any.
The Galaxy Tab S9+ is apparently shaping up to be a rather minor update to its predecessor. It will keep the 12.4″ screen size and 1752×2800 resolution, the embedded fingerprint sensor, the 4-speaker arrangement, dual rear cameras, and even the dimensions. Naturally, it will have S-Pen support, with a magnetic area on the back designated for storage of the stylus.
Like the S8+ from last year, it will also have support for 45W wired charging via the USB-C 3.2 port, but the cameras on the rear will be individually placed in their own circular islands, Galaxy S23 family-style. The new tablet might have a second front-facing camera, that should be helpful for when you’re video calling while holding the tablet in landscape mode.
While specs haven’t been leaked this time around, we expect the Galaxy Tab S9+ might come with an updated SoC, which should be the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and probably not much else, compared to its predecessor, other than the updated look of the cameras on the rear, the possible presence of two selfie shooters, and the previously rumored IP67 dust and water resistance.
