Galaxy Tab S4 to be offered in Black and Grey, may launch in August
Following numerous leaks surrounding the upcoming Galaxy Tab S4, SamMobile has now obtained more concrete details in regards to its color options and launch, with the latter happening alongside the reveal of the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2018).

According to the site, Samsung will be launching the Galaxy Tab S4 in both Black and Grey, while the budget Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2018) will also match these variants. Additionally, both tablets are expected to be available in Wi-Fi only and LTE variants. However, when it comes to features, things are expected to vary quite a bit due to the difference in pricing between the two. The Tab S4, for example, looks set to include a large display with reduced bezels and a new iris scanner. Also, in terms of power, last year’s Snapdragon 835 will be present alongside 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, with all of this being backed by Android 8.1 Oreo and Samsung Experience 9.5. When it comes to the Tab A 10.1 (2018), however, not much is known about the device other than the size of the display, which sits at 10.1-inches as indicated by the name, but a less powerful processor is to be expected and an iris scanner is highly unlikely.

In terms of the actual announcement date, no specific date has been mentioned, but the two tablets are currently expected to become official towards the end of July or the beginning of August. If true, Samsung could choose to announce the duo alongside its flagship Galaxy Note 9 and next-generation smartwatch, the Gear S4, at an event on August 9 in New York.

Why can't they give their flagship tablet a flagship processor? It does my head in!

The SD 835 is a flagship SoC. The GPU is over kill in a lot of smartphones, so it has plenty of power for a tablet display.

It's a great processor and runs circles around anything in any iPad. Will be buying this day 1, great productivity machines.

Please tell me you're trolling. The A10 in the budget iPad is more powerful than the 835. The A9X in the first gen pro destroys it, and the A10X in the current gen pros completely decimate it.

You seem to be the one trolling. Really? 835 is Octa Core vs the A9/10 being only dual or triple core. The 835 is MUCH more powerful than anything Apple could ever concoct. Try again.

A9X does not destroy a thing. It did, when it run iOS10, but on iOS11 it's slow as snapdragon 625. Might be just another bug, bug who care for power of the iPad, if the updates slows it considerebly. Snap835 is somewhere around A10, in bechmarks.

Just by posting that comment you have no clue what your talking about... the SD835 is a flagship processor. You must be one of those people who believe if the number in the name is bigger then must mean it's better

Having had the s3 since launch I don't know if it's just mine but this thing has become slow. I have basic apps. No games. Don't know why they can't put in 6gb instead of 4. I'll just wait and see maybe they give that option on launch.

I have an old Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 ed. and it runs better than new. I just cleaned it after my daughter installed like 50 "games" on it. It wasn't slow or something, I just uninstalled the trash. So my guess is, it's a software issue. I am running on Lineage and that old thing is still pretty smooth. RAM is rarely the issue.

Thanks. I'll check maybe its that office suite (not MS) causing it in the background.

He's running on a custom ROM, while you're on stock firmware.
