The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 is a great choice if you’re in the market for a tablet-laptop combo for kids. There are three tablets in the Tab S8 series to choose from, so you’re bound to find one that fits the bill. Perfect for streaming, homework and playing games, the tablet is brimming with super-cool features and state of the art tech. With superior, easy-to-use parental controls, the Galaxy Tab S8 series is an incredible kid-friendly range that gives you a lot of bang for your buck.
Available in three sizes, the Galaxy Tab S8 has an 11-inch screen, while Galaxy Tab S8+ adds more screen at 12.4 inches, and then last but not least, there’s the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, boasting a sharp 14.6-inch screen.
Wondering about storage? The Galaxy Tab S8 series gives you options. The basic models come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, or you can upgrade to 256GB or 512GB, depending on what you’re going to use your tablet for. If budget allows, you can also opt for 5G, for an even faster machine.
There’s even better news. With this series, battery life worries are no longer! With a battery life of 11 hours+ of usage time (depending on what you’re up to), you won’t have to worry about charging your tablet after every use.
The sophisticated design of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is definitely a lot more minimalist than the bright bumper cases you might usually associate with a kids’ tablet. With a vibrant display of 14.6 inches and a resolution of 2,960 x 1,848, the Tab S8 Ultra is the largest non-Windows tablet available, making it ideal for playing games, streaming films, reading books or just browsing the internet.
Despite its size, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is featherlite and slim in appearance, measuring just 5.5mm thick and weighing in at 726gm. Armour Aluminum casting and scratch-proof Gorilla glass protects against bumps and tumbles. In short, it’s a tough, kid-proof tablet built for kids of all ages.
Jam-packed with kid-friendly apps and cutting-edge technology, the Galaxy Tab S8 series promises to do it all. Here are a few of our favourite features:
Write, sketch, doodle or draw your wildest ideas into reality with the ultra-low latency S Pen. A thousand tools in one, the new S Pen gives you impressive levels of control.
Using the optional keyboard cover (sold separately), you can transform the tablet into a laptop, so it’s great for essay writing and emails.
Budding photographers will love the Galaxy S8 Ultra. The tablet debuts Samsung’s first ultra-wide front camera with dual 13MP and 6MP cameras on the rear and another pair of 12MP cameras facing the front. Bundled with an S Pen stylus that snaps magnetically into place to charge, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has been designed so you can create like a pro.
For art enthusiasts that love to draw and paint, Clip Studio Paint2 is an illustration, comic, webtoon, and animation app that’ll bring to life their most imaginative creations.
Get the gang together! With Google Duo you can ring up your BFF and up to 31 of your closest friends for a natter. Three-Mic noise reduction technology ensures quality sound so you can chat away to your heart’s content.
Auto Framing gives the speaker the spotlight they deserve. For instance, record your best dance moves and the camera will automatically zoom in to keep the focus on you and your moves as you give instructions.
Tween and teen life is hectic, and for those multi-taskers out there, the Multi Window functionalist lets you take charge. Divide your screen and select the size, position and even the number of windows you want to review, so you can research inspirations, sketch and video chat with your friend — all at once.
With Samsung’s family-friendly tools, you can support your child as they explore the online world safely, whether they’re taking their first digital footsteps or exploring new online spaces. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a tablet loaded with parental controls via Google’s Family Link app. This clever tech lets you monitor their usage and prevent them from accessing certain apps.
