The Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 is the most affordable of the three tablets and the most compact. With an 11-inch display, the S9 can fit into smaller bags easier than the rest of the lineup, but its features are anything but minor.
To start, Samsung stuck with the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach this time around. The Galaxy Tab S9 features the same 8,400mAh battery as its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab S8, which was appreciated for its long battery life.

With the addition of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy processor, we expect even greater battery life this time around, lasting you through the workday and into the evening.
The larger Samsung Galaxy Tab S9+ also features an improved AMOLED display and is a 12.4-inch middle ground between the more affordable S9 and the flagship Ultra.
The Tab S9 starts at $799 for the 128GB model, and the Tab S9+ starts at $999 for the 256GB model. Samsung is also selling the Tab S9+ in a 5G-supported variant, starting at $1,149.
