Like Galaxy S22, Samsung didn’t include charger with Galaxy Tab S8

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Series

Samsung has made it clear that users will not need a charger with their Galaxy Tab S8 buyers. Samsung Online Shop confirms that the Galaxy Tab S8 did not come with a charger in the box. Unfortunately, the packaging only includes the USB-C data cable, not the power brick.

Logically, it is fair to assume that Samsung’s decision to ditch the AC adapter will be driven by more durable packaging. Fewer items in the box can lead to a smaller box, i.e. less packaging. However, there is really no way to find out what prompted Samsung to go on this pathway.

Looking at the price of the device, you would think that Samsung might have an AC adapter. And the news is a little worse. The charger is not available on any version of the Galaxy Tab S8.

No charger is available on any version of Galaxy Tab S8!

If not getting the Galaxy Tab S8 charger is not so bad then it is not getting any kind of charger. If you do not buy one of the more expensive models, perhaps the biggest advantage is that you do not feel left out.

On the other hand, a device with an actual price of $700 does not seem to come with an AC plug. Even more insane when you consider the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra priced at a minimum of $1,100 or $1,400 for a top model with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.

What makes this decision even more interesting is that Samsung’s main competitor in the tablet space, Apple has AC adapters with its latest iPads. What do you get when you buy a Galaxy Tab S8, S8 +, or S8 Ultra?

Well, unlike the tablet, the box has a USB-C data cable, an S Pen, and an SD card slot ejector tool. And that’s it. While this may not be a big problem for those who have an AC adapter from a recent device, some users will definitely need a new one.

And in this case, they would have to buy it separately if they did not already have it. There is good news though. Samsung has a 45W power adapter that comes with an extra cable that sells for $50.

Spotted by 9to5Google, the ad starts with a person at a dinner party who uses Google’s ‘Hum to Search’ feature to find a song stuck in his head. Google search identifies the sound and sends it to nearby Samsung TV.

The advertisement shows more examples, it identifies Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy Watch 4 with Google Assistant, and ends it with the tagline “Make it epic’. You might hear it obvious, but the promo for Google Assistant’s ‘Hum to Search’ on Galaxy Watch 4 is fairly new.
