Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Features DeX for a 'PC-Like Experience'

Galaxy Tab S4 United Kingdom pricing will be £599 for the Wi-Fi-only model and £649 for the LTE model.

Samsung Electronics is seeking to adopt high-end features like triple-lens camera and on-screen fingerprint scanning for its budget smartphones even before their full adoption for its flagship Galaxy S series, according to industry sources on July 30. This is the first time DeX has been made available on a tablet, and allow users to switch to a desktop experience and connect a traditional Bluetooth mouse to the tablet.

The Tab A 10.5 is geared towards families and kids, as evidenced by its lower price (still TBD), lack of features compared to the Galaxy Tab S4, and its "Kids Mode", a UI aimed squarely at children.

U.S. buyers who want the LTE version can get theirs from Verizon starting on August 10, as well, although it's not clear what the privilege of cellular connectivity will add to the base price of the Tab S4. And I'm curious to see whether the Galaxy Tab S4 is at all successful. This is priced at £649.99.

The Samsung Galaxy On8 (2018) features a Super AMOLED Infinity Display measuring 6.0-inches diagonally with 720 x 1480 HD+ resolution and an 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is a two-in-one Android tablet that blends the portability of a tablet with the capabilities of a PC.

On the rear of the tablet a 13MP camera with autofocus and LED flash can be found.

RBI monetary policy: Repo rate hiked by 25 bps
Wednesday's repo rate hike was on expected lines, an SBI representative said, adding, "What we will do is to evaluate further". The monetary policy committee of a country uses the reverse repo rate as a tool to control the money supply in the country.

Internally, the Tab S4 comes loaded with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM.

4 speakers tuned by AKG, Dolby Atmos®. Samsung says the 7,300mAh battery offers up to 16 hours of video playback.

In the near-term, Samsung said competition would intensify in the second half as new smartphone models were released, prompting it to introduce a new Galaxy Note earlier than usual. When the Tab S4 is connected to the optional Book Cover Keyboard, a desktop experience through which you can open multiple desktop-style windows for your Android apps will be displayed.

Previously, Dex was a Samsung platform created to let phones like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 8 perform traditional laptop duties by letting you hook up a mouse, keyboard, and monitor via a propriety external dock.

An S Pen comes in the box for free.

"People are doing work differently than they've ever before", Samsung's Alanna Cotton said at a media event today.

In many respects it feels like a iterative evolution of the Tab S3, offerinng a similar looking device but one that manages to be better and deliver more across the board. But that device has a microSD memory card slot.
