The versatile and portable tablet is no stranger to mobile productivity or entertainment on-the-go. What makes the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 — available in Tab S8, Tab S8+ and Tab S8 Ultra models — so special is how digital journaling is elevated to a new level.
Journaling with Samsung Notes and Noteshelf, two free apps that are pre-loaded on the Tab S8 series, allows for great journaling experiences without the clutter of keeping physical notebooks. Seamless integration across Samsung devices and easy access to other modes of digital media with the Tab S8 also give you greater flexibility in how you write, draw, imagine and share.
Read on to find out how the Tab S8 series brings to life the ideal journaling experience.
Pen-on-paper precision with the S Pen
Pen and paper are the quintessential tools when it comes to journaling and journaling with the Tab S8 brings that seamlessly natural experience to the digital realm with the S Pen.

The new and improved S Pen that accompanies the Tab S8 uses a prediction algorithm for ultra-low latency, which means there’s near-instant feedback as you write, mimicking the glide of a pen across paper. The nifty handwriting-to-text function on both apps is also great for times when you’re jotting in a rush (goodbye illegible handwriting!), while the landscape scrolling function in Samsung Notes ensures you won’t run out of space for your scribbles. Aspiring calligraphers will also enjoy the dedicated S Pen calligraphy effects on Samsung Notes, while the tablet’s large display gives you the space to watch tutorials while you practice on the same device.
Create a bespoke journaling experience with Noteshelf
Whether you use a journal to stay organised or as a creative outlet, you can choose from a variety of digital planner and journal templates on Noteshelf Club to suit your preferences. Unleash your creativity by customising the layouts with stickers, drawings and more! Noteshelf lets you create multiple notebooks within the app too, giving you the ability to organise work, play and every day with ease.
Scribbled down a quick and easy spaghetti bolognese recipe and having a hard time remembering where it is? The built-in search function on Noteshelf combs through both typed and handwritten notes saved, so you can quickly find what you need. The app also supports handwriting recognition if you prefer to jot down your thoughts by writing with an S Pen.
Amp up your logs with multimedia options
Taking down notes from school or work discussions, or capturing a fun moment with friends? The Tab S8 is equipped with a 6MP Ultra-Wide and 13MP AF rear camera, as well as three microphones, so that both visuals and audio from important meetings and cherished gatherings are saved in crystal clear detail. The best part is that these photos and voice recordings can be inserted directly into your Samsung Notes or Noteshelf entry for instant and convenient recall. You can also include a link to your favorite TED Talk video or Pinterest mood board as you pen your thoughts, so a quick dose of inspiration is always just a tap away.
And if you feel up for a vlog instead, the 12MP Ultra Wide front camera and an additional 12MP wide front camera on the Tab S8 Ultra have you covered on days when words are simply not enough.
Built for effortless multitasking and expansive connectivity
Taking multitasking to the next level, the Tab S8 comes with the enhanced Multi-Active Window functions, such as opening and resizing multiple apps at the same time, while Samsung DeX offers PC-like capabilities and supports transparent app windows and screen mirroring on an external display – perfect for organising your to-do list or working on complicated projects while looking through your emails and calendar at the same time.
The Tab S8 series also supports seamless syncing across Galaxy devices via Samsung Cloud for easy access to your content on Samsung Notes, allowing you to pick up exactly where you last left off even when you’re switching between laptop, phone, and tablet.
Built for a new era of connectivity, the Tab S8 enables you to explore creative and productive ways of journaling that are limited only by your imagination!
