Samsung officially lifted the lid off of its Galaxy Tab S4 tablet, and well before its Galaxy Note 9 Unpacked event that is set to take place next week. We’re also happy to report that much of the official hardware in the Tab S4 pretty much matches the specs that were leaked a couple of week ago.
The Tab S4 features a 10.5-inch WQXGA (2560 x 1600) Super AMOLED display. It also has thinner bezels on the sides, top and bottom, which gives the tablet a wider display-to-surface ratio. Beneath the display, the Tab S4 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and an expandable storage configuration of either 64GB or 256GB.
Like its predecessor, the Tab S4 comes in two variations: one with LTE support and one with just Wi-Fi. Thanks to the Snadragon 835 SoC, it supports Cat 16 DLCA, and even come with 4 x 4 MIMO support. Regardless of the variation, both models will support Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, along with MIMO, Wi-Fi Direct, and Bluetooth 5.0.
In terms of cameras, the Tab S4 will feature a 13MP main camera with autofocus at the back, while its front-facing camera is an 8MP shooter. Audio-wise, the tablet comes with four speakers tuned by AKG and Dolby Atmos technology. Powering it all is a large 7,300mAh battery that Samsung says will allow the tablet to continuously play videos for up to 16 hours.
Also per our earlier report, it seems that the Tab S4 will also come with the ability to activate Samsung’s DeX mode on the fly, and without the need of a DeX dock. The one thing we didn’t expect, however, was Samsung bundling an S Pen with every Tab S4 tablet.
The Samsung Tab S4 will retail for US$650 (~RM2647) for the 64GB model, while the 256GB will retail at US$750 (~RM3054). So far, Samsung has yet to announce and official launch date for the Galaxy Tab S4 in Malaysia, neither did they provide an official pricing.
