Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus Comparison

Difference between Galaxy Tab S8 vs Galaxy Tab S8 Plus

What can you expect between the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 and the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus. Let's take a quick look and compare some of the key specs.

Size and Display

The Tab S8+ has a larger 12.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a higher resolution of 2,800 by 1,752, providing a more prominent and immersive viewing experience compared to the Tab S8's 11-inch TFT display.

The higher resolution and larger size of the Tab S8+ display allow for more content visibility without scrolling, making it ideal for web browsing, app usage, and multitasking.

The Tab S8+ features a Super AMOLED display with richer colors and additional control over white balance, offering a more visually appealing and customizable display compared to the Tab S8's TFT display.


Both the Tab S8 and Tab S8+ have similar designs, with small bezels, rounded corners, squared-off edges, four-speaker grills, and a USB-C port.

Both tablets offer two forms of biometric authentication: facial recognition with the front-facing camera and a fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button on the Tab S8 or an on-display fingerprint reader on the Tab S8+.

The Tab S8+ is slightly larger in size than the Tab S8, but this difference does not significantly impact portability. However, the smaller Tab S8 may be preferred for handheld gaming.


Both the Tab S8 and Tab S8+ have identical camera systems, including a rear-facing 13-megapixel wide and 6-megapixel ultra-wide camera, as well as a 12-megapixel front-facing ultra-wide camera.

Both tablets feature auto framing, which zooms in and out to keep subjects properly framed during video calls or capturing moving subjects.

The four AKG-tuned speakers with Dolby Atmos support on both tablets deliver excellent audio quality for watching content, listening to music, and gaming.

Software or Operating System

Both the Tab S8 and Tab S8+ come with an S Pen included, which offers a writing and drawing experience and supports Bluetooth-enabled gestures for media playback and camera control.

Both tablets support multitasking capabilities, allowing users to have two or more apps open simultaneously, and can boot into DeX mode for a desktop-like interface with resizable floating windows.

The larger and higher resolution display of the Tab S8+ enhances multitasking and provides a more immersive desktop-like experience in DeX mode or when using the tablet as a second screen.


When deciding between the Tab S8 and Tab S8+, the choice ultimately comes down to personal preferences and specific usage scenarios. The Tab S8+ stands out with its larger and higher-resolution display, delivering vibrant colors and providing greater control over white balance. These qualities make it a great option for those who prioritise content consumption, multitasking, and productivity. However, it's worth noting that the Tab S8 and Tab S8+ share numerous similarities in terms of design, camera systems, software features, and storage options. Both tablets come equipped with an S Pen, allowing for enhanced productivity and multitasking, while also offering expandable storage to accommodate your needs.
