There are lots of improvements in the new generation of S8 tablets, but the biggest is that they all come equipped with Samsung's brand new 4nm processor for lightning fast performance. The body has a durable aluminum frame that is 30% more scratch resistant and 40% less prone to bending than the S7. With support for 45W super-fast charging, you can charge a full battery in just 90 minutes, and they can even be used as a power bank for select Galaxy smartphones. Using Samsung's enhanced DeX mode, the tablets can also double as a wireless touchscreen monitor for your phone or PC, a great feature for signing documents or making notes.
The base model S8 starts at $700, while the step-up S8 Plus, which boasts a larger 12.4-inch display, starts at $900. Both models are only $50 more than the current price for their S7 counterparts. And when you preorder from Samsung directly, you'll get a free Slim Book Cover Keyboard, though only the S8 Plus includes and S Pen in the box.
