The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is apparently approaching the market launch, as the tablet was recently approved by Bluetooth SIG. The application refers both to the brand name of the tablet and to the already known model number SM-T835. So if in doubt, the SM-T835 will appear as a direct continuation of the Galaxy Tab S3
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 was released today – May 15 – by Bluetooth SIG – and although no exact hardware components were announced beats The application suggests that the slate will take advantage of Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. This feature fuels the idea that the tablet will rely on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, and the same chipset solution was previously proposed by a February benchmark listing, along with other features including a 10.5-inch display with one Pixel count of 2560 x 1600 and an aspect ratio of 16:10. The same benchmark deals also showed the inclusion of 4GB of RAM, 64GB of on-board storage and a 12 megapixel main camera paired with an 8-megapixel front-shooter. Although the Bluetooth SIG application does not mention the software, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is likely to run Android Oreo under the OEM's proprietary interface, and the user interface itself should theoretically provide a handful of software goodies specifically for tablets.
All Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is a flagship tablet based on Android, which is hard to find in the mobile market today, when budget-friendly solutions like the Fire HD screens from Amazon enjoy far more popularity. High-end Android tablet sales have dropped in recent years and although Samsung is not as active in this segment as it used to be, the OEM does not seem to want it completely and give it up. In terms of availability, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is approaching its debut after the recent events. If, however, it would follow an annual startup plan as the direct successor of the Galaxy Tab S3, it should have been out now. However, it is more likely that the upcoming slate will be presented in Berlin at the latest in the coming months or around the IFA.
