Samsung to Introduce the Galaxy S4 Tablet in August with a Larger OLED Panel
July 23, 2018
SamMobile can “exclusively confirm” the Galaxy Tab S4 will sport a slightly larger 10.5-inch screen than the Tab S3’s 9.7-incher, with an upgraded resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, and an aspect ratio revised from 4:3 to 16:10. The now-ancient Snapdragon 820 processor is also due for an upgrade, although Samsung will apparently snub Qualcomm’s latest 845 flagship silicon in favor of the previous-generation Snapdragon 835, which will be paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage space, while Android 8.1 Oreo is expected to run the software show out the box. Ports and connectivity options should include USB 3.1, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and Wi-Fi 802.11 ac support, as well as presumably optional LTE speeds. As suspected, there will be no fingerprint recognition, but an iris scanner is tipped to bolster the new slate’s convenience and security. A 13MP rear-facing and 8MP front-facing camera, along with a souped-up 7,300mAh battery, AKG-tuned audio technology, and yes, DeX support round out the robust list of specifications of a tablet widely rumored to break cover at IFA Berlin in late August.
