The South Korean electronics brand Samsung is allegedly delaying the debut of its newest Galaxy Tab S9 due to current economic worries. According to The Elec GizmoChina, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Tab S8 series earlier this year. It is 1.5 years after the launch of the Galaxy Tab S7 family.
Was the Delay in the Launch Planned?
In December, the business had planned to unveil its upcoming premium tablets. But as of now, the insider said, it seems like they will be made available the following year. According to the article, Samsung's choice was motivated by the recent unpredictability of the world economy. The global market for IT goods has reportedly begun to decline as the Covid-19 outbreak is almost over.
What is the Reason Behind the Delay in Release of the Galaxy Tab S9 series?
Samsung planned to produce 33.6 million tablets in 2022. But due to insufficient demand, the company might be unable to implement its plan.The global tablet market will contract by 8% this year, predicts DSCC (Display Supply Chain Consultants). The premium tablet category (OLED and Mini LED) is expected to grow by 22%. The culture of leaks has noticeably been devoid of the Galaxy Tab S9 series. It turns out that Samsung has no immediate plans to introduce a new high-end tablet.
Can we expect more models in the Galaxy Tab S9 series?
Samsung has a new plan for its next flagship tablets. The Galaxy Tab S9 series is reported to include three models, just like the Galaxy Tab S8 series. There is a strong likelihood that Samsung may announce the Galaxy Tab S9 alongside the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 in August 2023 instead of releasing it on its own.
