Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 release date: Samsung's brand-new tablet officially announced

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 release date: Samsung's brand-new tablet officially announced

The Tab S4 has taken some time to get here thanks to the fact that the Galaxy Tab S3 was released earlier than usual after the Galaxy Note 7 was cancelled. It features new family-oriented entertainment features which make it a great portable, entertaining device.

In keeping with recent Galaxy devices, the Tab S4's back is all glass.

It's an unusual move from Samsung when the firm normally prefers unveiling new products on stage at big events packed with guests. Any apps you open will open in a desktop-like interface, just like they would when you connect a Galaxy S9 to the DeX dock.

Galaxy Tab S4 users can launch DeX from the Quick Panel or by connecting the tablet to an optional $149.99 accessory called the Book Cover Keyboard.

Other than that, the tablet also comes with an 8MP main camera and a 5MP front-facing camera alongside a USB Type-C port. Earlier, the DeX mode would disable the phone's screen, which is not the case now.

Samsung wants $649.99 for a version with 64GB of built-in storage, or $749.99 for one with 256GB. The LTE model weighs 434g, while the Wi-Fi model weighs 429g. Samsung DeX is the company's version of a desktop operating system that supports things like multiple, desktop style windows that can be resized and there is support for actions like dragging and dropping content between apps.

But the Tab S4 isn't just bolstering visuals; there's four powerful speakers tuned by AKG. Reports from Engadget and CNET today say that T-Mobile will also be among the US carriers that sell the Galaxy Tab S4, but when contacted for confirmation, Samsung said that it didn't have any additional carrier info to share right now. On the front, you'll find a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display with minimal bezels, a Quad HD resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio. Besides, this is not the first time when Disney and Samsung have joined hands for AR emojis. “Featuring a refreshed design, enhanced parental controls and new home connectivity capabilities, the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is the flawless complement for the modern household.”.

Samsung also promises that the Tab S4 provides up to 16 hours of video playback and offers "defence-grade mobile security platform".

"Samsung was already lost to China in price competition and is getting threatened by Chinese models in designs and hardware strength", Park Jung-hoon, a fund manager at HDC Asset Management that owns Samsung shares was quoted as saying. But both tablets come with microSD card support up to 400GB, so no matter which tablet you get, you should not have to worry about storage.
