It includes the Galaxy Tab S9, Tab S9+ and Tab S9 Ultra, all of them detailed below.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra

The most powerful of the bunch, the Tab S9 Ultra comes with IP68 certification as an extra from its predecessor. It also brings the brand new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy processor. The screen is a 14.6 inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X with 120 Hz refresh rate, plus the Vision Booster feature from the Galaxy S23 devices.

It improves screen visibility and colors in very bright conditions. The notch is still here and hosts two 12 MP front cameras, a regular one and ultrawide one meant for videocalls more than selfies. The quad speakers have AKG tuning and are 20% bigger now.
