Apart from Galaxy Note 9 and Gear S4 smartwatch, Samsung is also expected to announce the Galaxy Tab S4 in the near future. A lot of information on the Tab S4 tablet has appeared in the recent past, but none of the leaks have revealed its actual design. An official press render of the tablet has appeared today to kill the mystery of its appearance.
Rumors have revealed that the Galaxy Tab S4 would be available in black and gray colors. The below render shows off the black variant. It is yet to be confirmed whether there will be Gold color edition of the tablet. When it comes to rear design and placement of the camera, the Galaxy Tab S4 appears almost same as predecessor Galaxy Tab S3. Even the positioning of the power and volume keys on the Galaxy Tab S4 is same as the predecessor tablet. The “Tuned by AKG” logo found on the Tab S3 has been replaced by “Samsung | Tuned by AKG” logo on the successor model.
Rumors have revealed that the Galaxy Tab S4 will be equipped with a 10.5-inch display. Earlier in this year, the HTML5 benchmarks of Tab S4 had revealed that it would be offering an aspect ratio of 16:10. The screen seems to be surrounded by slightly slimmer bezels compared to the Tab S3 that featured a 9.7-inch display. The overall size of the Tab S4 does not seem to be much larger than its predecessor.
There is no logo on the top bezel of the Galaxy Tab S4. This could be because that the tablet could be housing an iris scanner on the top bezel. Samsung seems to have removed the home button from the chin of the device. Probably, the Tab S4 may carry support for on-screen navigation buttons. Some rumor had claimed that the tablet could be arriving with fingerprint sensor enabled home button. However, now the home button is absent from the device, it is unlikely to feature a fingerprint scanner.
There is no information available on the specifications of the Galaxy Tab S4. The tablet is expected to be fueled by Snapdragon 835 chipset and 4 GB of RAM. It is likely to feature an inbuilt storage of 64 GB. A big-sized battery of 7,300mAh may power the upcoming Samsung tablet. The tablet may arrive preinstalled with Android 8.1 Oreo. For photography, it may feature a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera and a frontal shooter of 8-megapixel.
It is speculated that the Galaxy Tab S4 will also carry support for Samsung DeX. The South Korean company has recently confirmed that it will be holding the Unpacked event on Aug. 9. The event is expected to unleash the Galaxy Note 9 phablet. Hence, the company may announce the Galaxy Tab S4 at the IFA 2018 tech trade show.
