Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is all on display, literally
Here's a good look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. This is a tablet that has been reported a lot in recent months, and one that is expected to start soon enough. Up to now, however, almost no leaked images have come through. To correct this situation, here's an official press gang that gives a very clean look on the front and back of the new Galaxy Tab S4. The image was given to AndroidHeadlines by a trusted source.
Earlier it was proposed Galaxy Tab S4 will be launched in two colors, black and gray. While AndroidHeadlines can not talk about the latter, this image confirms that black will probably be one of the most important color choices when the tablet becomes available. From the back, there seems to be very little difference when comparing the new model with the Galaxy Tab S3, as they both have the same overall design and the same rear camera position. Although the logo on the back of the device has changed slightly as it has moved further down. The result in " Tuned by AKG " logo on the S3 tab replaced with " Samsung | Tuned by AKG ." This paints a slightly different picture to the latest FCC image that appeared as now suggests what was used in FCC filing, more likely was a Tab S3 placeholder image. The power and volume buttons on the page remain in the same position as the previous model. No change.
The front page of the Galaxy Tab S4 is another story entirely. Like this, there are some very obvious changes that can be seen. First of all, Galaxy Tab S4 is about the display, since the screen is now far more prominent than on a previous Galaxy Tab S model. Earlier rumors have pointed to a 1
More specifically, there is apparently complete absence of a home button on the chin. While the Samsung logo may be present when the finished product is revealed, based on the image provided, the chin is not sufficiently large enough to comfortably hold a key. So it seems very unlikely that a physical home button will be offered with the new model. This would mark a big design run for the Galaxy Tab S line, and one who immediately raises another question – what about the fingerprint sensor? Previously, it was expected that Tab S4 would contain a fingerprint sensor built into the home button, but without a physical key, it seems less likely to be the case. Of course, Samsung can choose a fingerprint sensor under display, and especially as virtual buttons seem to be used. But if that's the case, it would be a very big feature for the Galaxy Tab S4, as Samsung has not yet launched a product with a fingerprint sensor under display. While Galaxy Note 9 comes up and is expected to launch either with or before Tab S4, rumors on Galaxy Note 9 appear to be very uncertain as to whether the new phone will display the educational solution or not. Based on this picture, the Galaxy Tab S4 appears to have either an under-display sensor or no sensor at all. While a side-mounted fingerprint reader built into the tablet power button may be possible in theory – given how both Sony and Motorola managed to commercialize this type of solution earlier – it seems less likely here that there seems to be no deviation in the size of the power key relative to the previous one model.
Currently there is nothing new to add to specifications, but rumors of rumors that have emerged, the Galaxy Tab S4 is expected to contain 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, a 7,300 mAh battery, and Android 8.1 (Oreo). This is in addition to a 13 megapixel rear camera and an 8 megapixel front-facing camera. While most of these can be considered natural improvements considering what Galaxy Tab S3 is offered, Galaxy Tab S4 is also slated to come loaded with some additional features, such as Samsung DeX support. Despite the fact that Samsung has already announced a August 9 product launch, most indications indicate an IFA 2018 cover for the Galaxy Tab S4.
