This may enable Samsung to push the display up to 10.5-inches, up from the 9.7-inch size of the Tab S3 device. With this handset, Samsung is looking to increase its market share, but the specifications of the handset tell a different story altogether.
Like the iPad Pro which went with slimmer bezels in order to pack in a larger display without making the device larger, Samsung has made some substantial changes to the Galaxy Tab S4. The smartphone is constructed entirely out of plastic. The lack of a Samsung logo on the front of the device may hint at the presence of a face-scanning camera that'll potentially replace the fingerprint sensor. There is no Samsung label on the front of the device this year, rumoured to be because of the presence of an iris scanner instead. It is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7870 SoC clocked at 1.6GHz, coupled with Mali T830 MP1 GPU and 4GB of RAM. The onboard memory is only 64GB but it should be expandable. There's a microSD card slot for storage expansion, and it accepts up to 256GB of SD cards. It will be running on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung Experience UI on top. Samsung is usually pretty efficient at following up with full product pages and videos focussing on all the aspects of new flagship smartphones. For connectivity features, the smartphone will offer Dual SIM, 4G with VoLTE, WiFi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.2, GPS/ GLONASS, 3.5mm audio jack, FM radio and a micro USB 2.0 port. The handset is backed by a 3000mAh battery and offers 4G, VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System as connectivity options.
The back of the tablet is nearly identical to the Tab S3, the big exception - the aspect ratio change aside - being a lowered rear camera. It comes with a wide-angle 8MP sensor with dedicated LED flash, which is very beneficial while capturing selfies under low-light conditions.
