Samsung Galaxy Tab S4: Rumoured Specifications, Features

As we mentioned earlier, specifications and features of the Galaxy Tab S4 have already surfaced on the internet in the form of leaks and renders. Going by all the previous reports, the Galaxy Tab S4 is expected to come with a 10.5-inch display bearing a 16:10 aspect ratio and 2560 x 1600 pixels resolution. The upcoming Tab S4 will sport more screen real estate and lesser bezels, giving it a thinner outlook than the previous models.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Tab S4 is rumoured to come powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. On the software side, it will most likely run Android 8.1 Oreo-based Samsung Experience UI. For optics, it will sport a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP selfie snapper at the front. A 7300mAh battery will back the device. Connectivity and other options will include Bluetooth 5.0, an iris scanner, support for Samsung DeX.

It turns out the the Galaxy Tab S4 may ditch the fingerprint sneosr, which could have been done to attain the new design that is slimmer and thinner than the previous models.
