Samsung is working on the successor of the Galaxy Tab S3 which is dubbed as Galaxy Tab S4. The Galaxy Tab S4 is expected to launch in late August or early September after the Galaxy Note 9 announcement on August 9. Now an official press render of the tablet has surfaced online which has revealed the design details of the smartphone.
Android Headlines has leaked the first look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. The source has shared the image of the tablet in Black colour which has confirmed that black will certainly be one of the main colour options of the device. The camera is placed at the back of the device with LED flash. At the bottom, there is Samsung logo with “Tuned by AKG” branding. The power and volume buttons lie on the right side of the device.
The front of the device comes with slimmer bezels, a bigger display, and most notably, a lack of the physical home button. It shows elimination of the physical home button, as well as bezels that are the same size on all four edges. Samsung removed its logo from the front hints that the device will indeed boast an iris scanner on board instead of the fingerprint sensor.
The report, however, does not mention information on the specifications of the Galaxy Tab S4. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 will feature a 10.5-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels and an aspect ratio of 8:5. It will have 4GB RAM and Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 1.90 GHz octa-core processor. The device will be based on the Android 8.1.0 Oreo operating system with Samsung Experience version 9.5 and 7300mAh battery. It will have a 13-megapixel rear camera with flash and an 8-megapixel front camera. A recent report suggested that that the Galaxy Tab S4 will have an iris scanner, along with support for DeX, Samsung’s desktop platform.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 along with Gear S4 will not launch along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Both the products will be launched following the Galaxy Note 9 announcement, and most likely during this year’s IFA event in Berlin starting August 31. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 will launch in Black and Grey colour options.
