The rumor mill has been working up a new Samsung-branded tablet for quite some time now, with expectations it would be a successor to the Galaxy Tab S3.
And sure enough, just a few days shy of Samsung announcing the Galaxy Note 9, the company has officially unveiled its newest premium tablet. The new device is the Galaxy Tab S4, and it offers slimmer bezels, audio tuned by AKG which you can take advantage of with four speakers, and a big, vibrant display. That screen measures in at 10.5 inches, and it’s an sAMOLED panel with a resolution of 2560×1600.
Meanwhile, under the hood, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, and either 64GB or 256GB of built-in storage. There is a 13-megapixel camera on the back, and an 8MP camera on the front. There is no home button on the Galaxy Tab S4, so iris scanning and facial scanning are the go-to biometric security and authentication measures.
It has the standard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 on board, the battery measures in at 7300mAh with support for Fast Charging, and the Galaxy Tab S4 is running Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. As is usually the case, Samsung is throwing in the S Pen stylus at no additional cost.
Samsung says that the Galaxy Tab S4 has its DeX support built right into the software, and the tablet can support having up to 20 different windows open at the same time.
The Galaxy Tab S4 will have an LTE model, too, with support from Verizon, U.S. Cellular, and Sprint. It will retail for $650 for the 64GB model, or $750 for the 256GB variant. It will be available in a glossy black or white. It goes up for pre-order beginning today, and the Galaxy Tab S4 will start shipping on August 10.
