There are also expectations for Apple to equip the iPad Mini with the A14 Bionic chip, but some also say that the tablet might be equipped with the yet-to-be-released A15 Bionic chipset.
There are also rumors that the iPad Mini will be accompanied by a smaller keyboard and a smaller Apple Pencil. While these upgrades might not be too advanced, it is already enough to pique the interest of Apple users, especially those who are already fans of the iPad Mini.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8
While iOS fans have the iPad to look forward to, Android fans might want to keep an eye on the rumored release of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8. Samsung tablets are the top choice for Android users, and they are especially popular in Southeast Asia where there are more Android users than there are iOS users.
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S7 is a worthy competitor to Apple’s iPad Pro so many tech enthusiasts are hoping that the Galaxy Tab S8 will step up to the game.

The Galaxy Tab S7 is already a crowd favorite which is why Samsung fans are already awaiting the arrival of the Galaxy Tab S8, even if there is no definite release date yet.
Microsoft Surface Pro 8
Some tablet users get the device as a companion to their computer, but the Microsoft Surface Pro series was developed for users who want to replace their computers with a more versatile tablet.
The device has been regularly updated by Microsoft ever since it was released but there was no new Microsoft Surface Pro in 2020, which leaves experts and fans to speculate a refresh to be launched in late 2021 or early 2022.
There has not been much news about the Microsoft Surface Pro 8, but that just leaves room for more speculations on what is to be expected. One thing that experts are looking forward to is seeing the tablet run on Windows 11, assuming that the launch date of the device is not too soon.
There are also expectations for a better camera and battery on the new Surface Pro 8 since more people are using their devices for meetings and video calls. These are just some upgrades that users would like to see on the Surface Pro 8 but if Microsoft does manage to include these features into the device, there will be no doubt that it will sell well.
