UPDATE (December 6th, 2021):
It is time for new Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 renders shared by Evan Blass aka @evleaks. There are three models Galaxy Tab S8, Galaxy Tab S8 Plus, and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. The latest leak corroborates previous claims of a notched display on the tablet. It is important to note that the notch is available only on the Ultra model. This is probably because it houses dual selifie cameras.

Samsung looks to have found a new way to pack the selfie camera on its upcoming flagship tablet, well, if we go by a new set of leaked renders. As per the newest leak, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra features a notch on its display so to carry the selfie camera. The idea has been adopted simply to have thinner bezels around the screen and hence a larger viewing area.
The leaked renders show the notch on the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is pretty small, but enough to accommodate a camera to let users take selfies or do video calls. The smaller size is also an indication that the tablet supports no face unlock feature. On the back panel, there is a dual-camera setup, the configurations of which are unknown at the moment.
Steve H.McFly (@OnLeaks) who has leaked these renders together with 91Mobiles has reiterated the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will feature a large 14.6-inch display, compared to its siblings Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus that are expected to feature 11-inch and 12.4-inch display sizes.
The leak doesn’t reveal the specifications of the tablet but we can take a closer look at these renders to know what’s coming. There are four speakers and a Type-C port, but there is no headphone jack. The dual-rear cameras are organized inside a pill-shaped camera module. There is a magnetic strip as well for the S Pen.
Past rumors claimed the dual camera setup on the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra includes a 13MP primary snapper and a 5MP secondary lens. Nothing else is known about the tablet yet but we expect to learn more soon.
The new Galaxy Tab S8 tablets are expected to arrive in November or December.
