Insiders @OnLeaks and WolfOfTablet have published renders of the new Samsung tablet – the Galaxy Tab S9+, which should be released later this year. The renders are based on CAD files and show a design that is very similar to the previous model, the Galaxy Tab S8, except for one notable difference.
The main cameras in the Galaxy Tab S9+ are based on the design of the Galaxy S23 series, and below them is a magnetic strip for attaching the S Pen, which has become more visible.
The renders don’t give much information about the functionality of the model. However, according to insiders, the tablet is expected to have dimensions of 285.4×185.4×5.64 mm, which is practically the same as its predecessor, which means that its display diagonal will most likely be 12.4 inches. Some features should also be consistent with the previous model, including four speakers, a USB-C port and a set of connectors for connecting a keyboard cover.
One of the biggest upgrades to the Galaxy Tab S9+ should be IP67 water and dust protection, which is a rarity for tablets. Although IP67 is not as protected as IP68 in Samsung smartphones, it will still be enough for the tablet to survive heavy rain or a short immersion in water.
Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Tab S9+ and other models in the Tab S9 series later this year, possibly alongside new foldable smartphones.
