Clip Studio Paint, the illustration, comic, and animation app developed and distributed by Celsys, will be pre-loaded(*1), on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8/S8+/S8 Ultra announced on February 10, 2022. Samsung Galaxy, one of the world’s leading tablet brands, is a leader in the tablet market for global regions including Europe, Middle East, Africa, as well as  North America. First time users can receive up to six months free use of Clip Studio Paint for Galaxy(*2) and start getting creative straight away with Samsung’s iconic S Pen, included with every tablet.

An update of Clip Studio Paint, built with the all-new Companion mode feature, was released to the Galaxy Store on February 10. Galaxy smartphones with the Clip Studio Paint app can connect to the Galaxy Tab S8 Series in Companion mode over Wi-Fi. From there, the smartphone can be used like a palette for selecting colors and brushes for Clip Studio Paint, while the Galaxy Tab S8 is used as a digital canvas. By using a Galaxy Tab S8 series tablet in conjunction with a smartphone in Companion mode, users can get more out of the creative process and produce works of art with greater ease.
