Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 gets certified by the FCC ahead of summer launch
Following yesterday’s approval of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 by the FCC, today the commission has certified yet another one of the company’s products, the upcoming Galaxy Tab S4 which is expected to make its debut later this summer.

As expected from FCC listings, very little information is actually confirmed in regards to what the new flagship tablet will offer, although it does reconfirm the SM-T835 model number. Additionally, it confirms that this particular model will support a number of LTE bands along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth – a Wi-Fi only variant that is currently known as the SM-T830 is also said to be in the works. Moreover, the FCC certification also contains a visual sketch of the rear panel that has been included to show off the placement of the FCC ID. However, the “Tuned by AKG” phrase can also be seen towards the bottom of the rear, suggesting the new tablet will boast an improved audio experience.

In regards to what else the Galaxy Tab S4 will offer, previous leaks have revealed a multitude of details such as the presence of a Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. Additionally, a boost in battery life is expected thanks to the presence of a 7300mAh power pack. Also, on the external side of things, the tablet looks set to boost the size up to 10.5-inches, with a resolution of 2560 x 1600p also set to be present.

Initially, the Galaxy Tab S4 was rumored to make its appearance towards the beginning of August alongside the Galaxy Note 9. But, if recent information is accurate, Samsung may be preparing a launch later on in the month at IFA 2018 alongside the new Gear S4 which will possibly go by the Galaxy Watch name.

Let's hope this is not the usual Samsung over priced tablet. I need to replace my Samsung Tab s 10.5 & book cover.

Will probably be $500-$600 like most past flagship tablets unfortunately.

If they really go for a 16:10 aspect ratio again, I may replace my original TAB S 10.5... only some months after launch though, when it gets cheaper.

Sad not to see them use SD845 and 6GB RAM. A tablet needs to have better performance than a phone or at least have the same.

Agreed! At least 6gb ram for me. Will have to see how it performs. Maybe not as bad as I am thinking.

Personally I've seen no reason to need that much RAM, maybe I just don't multitask enough. I'd be fine with 4Gb, I'd like to see the newest SOC for best GPU performance possible and the option for more storage. 64Gb isn't much when you start loading games on a device.

SD cards are for storage, not memory...

The SD835 will work just fine. You wouldn't see much of a difference

no wonder tablet sales are declining, all tablets, samsung, apple included are just to similar to phones, they need to move away, in design terms, and software and hardware terms, with modern phones havig screens upto 6.5", an 8" or 10" tablet is all well and good but if it cant do anything better then the phone then there isnt really any point to even owning one, a shake up is needed

Chrome tablets might be a way out of this. We will see.
