News and Rumors

According to the real information leaked by a benchmark, Tab S4 will be loaded with a 2.3GHz chipset. We are also expecting to see a Snapdragon 835 indicating that the Tab S4 perhaps not be cutting-edge as that’s a 2017 chipset, albeit a high-end one.

As far as other specs are concerned, Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 will come with a 64GB of onboard memory, a 12MP rear and 8MP front shooter, a 10.5” 1600 x 2560 pixels screen and of course an Android 8 Oreo.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 comes with HDR content, but it’s undecided that Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 will remove that primary feature.

Expected Features

Undoubtedly, the Galaxy Tab S3 is one of the best tablets this time around but lacks in many departments. Let’s see how the Galaxy Tab S4 can get closer.

4K Display

A year-old Tab S3 sports an exquisite 9.7-inches Super AMOLED display supporting the maximum resolution of 1535 x 2048 pixels and HDR, but doesn’t have 4K sadly. If there’s a 4K resolution in Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, it could be a final tablet for media.

Better Multitasking

Tablets normally don’t offer a proper dock for easy app switching, even apps work slowly and the screen is doubtfully a little congested when wanting two apps running side by side. It would be great to see if Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 covers all the areas where its predecessor actually lacks.

Water Resistance

Samsung has been offering a water resistance feature in its flagship devices, but its shame to see those flagship tablets still lack. If you want to use your tablets by the pool, in the bath or while cocking, it will surely put you off. Still, we are hopeful to hear that Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 will be perfect for all environments and occasions.

Much More Storage

Apple iPad Pro houses a 64GB of onboard memory and goes all the way up to 512 even though it doesn’t have a microSD card slot. You should go for the largest size so you will get more space than the biggest supported card.

It is expected to see the same in Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. However, the Tab S4 is newer and bigger, so we rather even want more than that.

A Cheaper Keyboard

A predecessor “Samsung Galaxy Tab S3” was designed in part as an efficient device just like Apple iPad Pro, or like Apple’s slate you are required a lavish and expensive keyboard accessory to get the best out of it.

As far as Samsung is concerned, the official keyboard launched for AU$170 which is almost equivalent to some Chromebooks cost. We are very much hopeful see Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 along with this Keyboard, or at least offered for a lot less money.

Keyboard Tweaks

Talking about a keyboard, there is a room for improvement in its design too i.e. function keys are not available, neither there is a home button.

The Tab S4 could do with stronger magnets, and the flag should be magnetic, to turn off the screen and shut it down when closed. We are expecting these kinds of easy fixes in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4’s keyboard.

Are you ready to upgrade your Galaxy Tab S3 to Tab S4 if every expectation turns out to be true? How about if you could wait a bit more for Samsung Galaxy Tab S5? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
