Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Unboxing : A Complete Package
What we really like about the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 tablet is that it comes as a complete package.
Unlike competing tablets, it comes with an awesome keyboard cover and S Pen in the package. There is no need to pay extra for either. Everything you need is in the box. Well, almost everything.
Once you fully unbox it, this is what you will find inside the box :
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra tablet
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Book Cover Keyboard
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra S Pen
- Set of Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 documents
- USB Type A to Type A data and power cable
- microSD tray ejector pin
The only thing missing is the charger. The package does not include the 45 watt power adaptor. Not even a standard 15 watt Samsung charger.
But that’s how most of the brands are rolling these days, in the name of reducing digital waste, so we won’t hold it against them.
