The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is here and it has its sights set on the iPad Pro
The new tablet features four speakers and zero home buttons.
It’s official, Samsung has revealed an all-new Galaxy Tab S4 tablet. Introduced during a surprise livestreamed event, the new device includes a 10.5-inch screen and ships without a home button.
With a resolution of 2,500 by 1,600, the Galaxy Tab S4 display is larger than the one on last year’s Tab S3, but it still uses Super AMOLED technology. For the first time, the Tab S4 comes without a home button. In its place, you’ll find thinner bezels and gesture controls.
Other features in this year’s model include four AKG speakers with support for Dolby Atmos, far-field microphone technology, and support for Google Assistant out of the box.
Each tablet comes with an S Pen stylus, a 13MP F/1.9 rear-facing camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB or 256GB storage options, which is expandable through microSD. Available in black or white, the Galaxy Tab S4 is available for $649 for the 64GB model and $749 for the 256GB option.
What isn’t known yet is when the tablet will arrive in stores, although there is already a listing for the device on Best Buy’s website.
More expensive tablets such as the iPad Pro haven’t exactly been flying off the shelves lately, so it will be interesting to see whether the equally expensive Tab S4 can find a place in the market. With the lower-priced iPad starting at just $329 and anticipation growing for this year’s iPad Pro lineup, it could prove difficult for Samsung to find its footing.
Nonetheless, if you’re looking for a high-quality Android-based tablet, this one has now become the one to get.
