Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S9 series with its latest foldables in July and now we welcome our most premium representatives to our office. For the second generation in a row, the Ultra is the biggest tablet in the company’s lineup, but its benefits stretch far beyond.
The 14.6-inch tablet is the best the company has to offer, and we’ll do our best to find out if it’s worth the $1,200 starting price.
The Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra is huge at 32.6cm wide and 20.8cm tall. It was designed with landscape use in mind, so the level of two cameras is on one of the long sides. Taking it out of the box is not easy to hold the tablet without something to rest it on – it is heavy and unbalanced for one hand with its 732g body and two hands. Access most of the display.
Our retail box had a USB-C to USB-C charging cable and an S Pen. The stylus is a great addition as the S9 Ultra’s giant canvas lets your creativity flourish.
We understand that some artists prefer it to sit flat on the table, but in any other situation we understand that the tablet needs support.
Compared to the Tab S8 Ultra, the top dog of the S9 comes with a brighter display, IP68 water and dust resistance, variable refresh rate and, of course, the latest Qualcomm chipset.
There are also four AKG-tuned speakers, placed two on either side – all of which are pretty interesting details that deserve a closer look.
Samsung has built a tablet that aims to provide a proper answer to the iPad Pro 12.9 by Apple. The review is already underway and once it’s done we’ll know how well it went. Follow it!
