What’s inside the Galaxy Tab S8 / Galaxy Tab S8 Plus / Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra box?

Irrespective of the tablet you buy within the series, the box content (beyond the specific tablet) remains the same. So in a typical Galaxy Tab S8 series box, you will find:

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 / Galaxy Tab S8 Plus / Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra
  • S Pen

  • USB-C to USB-C cable
  • SIM ejection tool
  • Region-specific documentation, including Quick Start Guide

 

You may have noticed a curious omission: that’s right, there is no charger within the box. Even though most companies bundle a charger within their tablet boxes, Samsung has gone ahead and removed the charger from the Tab S8 series box, so you will not get a charging brick with either of the three tablets. Here are some of our charging adapter recommendations, if you don’t have a spare lying around and need to make an extra purchase.

Depending on whether you pre-ordered the regular or the Plus variant, you will get a free Book Cover Keyboard Slim, or if you pre-ordered the Ultra, you will get the backlit Book Cover Keyboard for free.

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 is the entry level tablet of the company's latest flagship lineup, featuring an 11-inch screen.
    The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus is the middle-range tablet of the company's latest flagship lineup, featuring a 12.4-inch screen.
    The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is the highest-end tablet of the company's latest flagship lineup, featuring a 14.6-inch screen.

If you end up settling for this high-end tablet, protect it with a case to minimize scratches, cracks, and other potential damages! It’s worth noting that if you pre-order this model in particular from Samsung, you get a free backlit keyboard.


The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8, Galaxy Tab S8 Plus, and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra start at $699, $899, and $1,099 respectively. The highest-end model is only available in one color — Graphite. On the contrary, the other two models come in three finishes to choose from — Graphite, Silver, and Pink Gold. Interestingly, all models come with a SIM ejection tool, even if you pick up the WiFi-only (non-5G/4G) models, at least from the information we have access to.
