Samsung enthusiasts in South Africa are eagerly anticipating the arrival of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Tab S9. With its release date, pricing, and rumored specifications making headlines, let’s take a closer look at what South African customers can expect from the latest addition to Samsung’s tablet lineup.

Release Date

Samsung has officially announced that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 will be unveiled at the Galaxy Unpacked event in Seoul on July 26. While it is unclear when exactly the device will be available in South Africa, previous launch patterns suggest that it should hit the market shortly after the global announcement.


Although Samsung has not yet confirmed the pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 in South Africa, leaked European pricing provides an indication of what customers might expect. Considering the current exchange rate of $1 to ZAR 19, South African customers should be prepared for a potential price range as follows:

  • Regular Wi-Fi model with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage: Estimated starting price of around ZAR 17,611
  • Regular Wi-Fi model with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage: Estimated starting price of around ZAR 19,931
  • Tab S9+ starting model: Estimated starting price of around ZAR 21,831
  • Tab S9 Ultra: Estimated starting price of around ZAR 25,631

Please note that these prices are based on leaked European pricing and should be treated as estimates until official pricing is confirmed by Samsung for the South African market.

Specs and Features: Design

According to leaks, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 series is expected to inherit a design similar to its predecessor. The alleged render of the Tab S9+ showcases a tablet with a 12.4-inch display, dual rear cameras, and four speakers. While detailed renders and dimensions for the regular Tab S9 are not yet available, it is anticipated that they will surface online in the near future.

Colour Options and Durability

Reports suggest that the regular models of the Tab S9 series will be available in beige or grey finishes. Additionally, rumours indicate that the rumoured Tab S9 FE and FE+ models might offer more colourful options, including light green, pink, and silver.

South African customers will be pleased to know that the entire Tab S9 series is expected to come with at least an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance. This certification ensures that the tablets are protected from dust and can survive immersion in water up to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes.


As Samsung prepares for the Galaxy Unpacked event, South African customers can anticipate the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 in the near future. While official pricing for the South African market is yet to be announced, leaked European pricing suggests that customers should prepare for a potential price increase compared to previous models. With its sleek design, powerful specifications, and notable features such as IP67 water and dust resistance, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 is set to be a compelling option for Android tablet enthusiasts in South Africa.
