The S Pen received FCC certification in April. The pen supports Bluetooth Low Energy and has a built-in 2.40V capacitor for quick recharging. The cell is expected to be attached to the tablet through a magnetic strip.

Additionally, a leaker named Revegnus revealed on Twitter that the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra will be powered by an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the same version used in the Galaxy S23 series. Compared to the regular Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the Galaxy Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 boosts the base clock speed by 0.16 GHz and the GPU clock speed by 39 MHz.

The battery capacity is still higher than the 10,758 mAh battery of the iPad Pro 2022, and it is a long-lasting tablet.
