This Is The New Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

Thinner Bezels, Larger Battery And Speedy Internals

Tablets have lost their importance over the past eight years. However, it seems like Samsung isn’t backing off yet. Despite Apple’s strong presence with their lineup of iPads, Samsung has just announced the successor to the Galaxy Tab S3, the Galaxy Tab S4. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is definitely in a league of its own. Despite Apple’s iPad giving Samsung’s Galaxy tablets a hard time, the Tab S4 is definitely one that you shouldn’t overlook. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 comes with a large 10.5-inch AMOLED display with a 16:10 aspect ratio with a 2560×1600 resolution. Alongside that, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 comes with four speakers on either side of the device tuned by AKG and Dolby Atmos, a 7300mAh battery versus the 6000mAh battery on the Tab S3, 4 Gigabytes of RAM, upto 256GB internal storage powered by a Snapdragon 835 SoC. There’s also a host of two shooters, one on the front and one on the back. At the rear of the device, you’re looking at a 13MP shooter along with support for AF and 4K / 30FPS video recording capabilities. On the front, you’re looking at an 8MP camera for all of those Skype or Whatsapp calls you wish to attend. This Is The New Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 3 What’s impressive with the introduction of the Tab S4, aside from the Galaxy S4 nostalgia, has to be fact that it support’s Samsung’s DeX technology. Samsung’s DeX technology is one area where Samsung is really wishing to push the productivity boundaries of their devices. Despite running Android, Samsung intends semi-professionals to use its capabilities of tasks such as word processing and more. Samsung claims that thanks to the 7300mAh battery, the Galaxy Tab S4 would be able to last you about 16 hours of playback which is more than enough for most users. Since the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 has slightly weaker internals, as well as a smaller battery, I’m sure many people who are still keen on using Android tablets should be happy to upgrade to the Tab S4. Out of the box, the Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with Android 8.1 Oreo, as well as packs Samsung’s classic S-Pen for those into the whole pen thing. People who ever wanted a larger version of the Note 8 would be more than happy to use the S-Pen on the Tab S4. One area where Samsung has bumped up hardware is the RAM capacity. Sure its LPPDR4X and it has about 4GB RAM, having about 6GB RAM would have been more than enough for a device like this. Especially when you’re not intending to upgrade it anytime soon.
