Samsung delayed Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 due to coronavirus outbreak at Samsung factory

Due to the new wave of the coronavirus pandemic at the Samsung plant, the South Korean giant will postpone the release of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 line of flagship tablets, Letsgodigital reports.

Eleven employees at Samsung's Suwon, South Korea plant are believed to have contracted the coronavirus. This information was provided by blogger Super Roader, who previously worked at Samsung, who said that these people worked in the same building where they develop and test new devices.

The source added that Samsung will now take stricter measures than previous outbreaks, with 70% of employees now having to work from home. It is worth noting that this incident allegedly will not affect the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S22, scheduled for early January.

Super Roader has uploaded a new video in which he talks about the situation, adding that Samsung is prioritizing its S series smartphones over its tablets. According to IDC, Samsung was able to sell about 75 million smartphones and just 8 million tablets in the first quarter of 2021, so this prioritization seems logical.

It is reported that only the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will receive bangs, while the Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8 + will not. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will have a 14.6-inch display, the Galaxy Tab S8 will have an 11-inch display, and the Galaxy Tab S8 + will have a 12.4-inch display. The tablets should be based on Qualcomm's new flagship Snapdragon platform.
