Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 may have just leaked ahead of MWC 2018 announcement
Samsung fans are most likely focused on learning as much as they can about the company's upcoming flagships – Galaxy S9 and S9+. However, there's another device that South Korean handset maker is likely to introduce later this month at Mobile World Congress 2018, a new tablet.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 may have just leaked ahead of MWC 2018 announcement
Even though the Galaxy S9 is expected to steal the show, Samsung has another ace up its sleeve, the Galaxy Tab S4. The unannounced tablet has been recently spotted at GFXBench, along with some of its specs.

Naturally, the Galaxy Tab S4 (model number SM-T835) is a high-end tablet, so it's no wonder that it packs 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory. Although the listing doesn't mention the name of the processor powering the slate, we can safely assume the Galaxy Tab S4 will include a Snapdragon 835 processor since it comes with an Adreno 540 GPU (graphics processing unit).

Furthermore, a 12-megapixel camera may be included on the back side, while an 8-megapixel front camera will be available for those who like to take selfies. There's no NFC (Near Field Communications) support, but the top-tier tablet will offer Wi-Fi and GPS capabilities.

Also, Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 will boast a larger 10.5-inch display with 2560 x 1600 pixels resolution, and it will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo on board. It's also worth noting that the Galaxy Tab S4 will include a SIM card slot, which will allow users to take and make calls.

Touchwiz, Grace Ui or whatever it's called will lay waste to such beautiful hardware. Oh I wish someone would just make an Android 10 inch flagship tablet with stock Android. If only Samsung would. I can't believe Google just doesn't care about the tablet market, it's like they've just conceded defeat. Hopefully someone develops a stable linage rom for this and I'll buy one in a heartbeat.

"Touchwiz, Grace Ui or whatever it's called will lay waste to such beautiful hardware" Just because you love stock Android doesn't mean you should troll other UIs. Samsung Experience has gotten lighter and lighter in each iteration.

You must be joking. Not only is stock Android's phone UI utterly useless on a tablet, Samsung has spent years implementing their stylus features which make tablets like the S3 worth getting. But sure, let's throw all that out the window. You stock zealots are ridiculous.

Google gave up because Samsung and others did it better. Samsung tabs have always offered more than Google, especially the pen enabled ones.

No 4G, old CPU, and I assume a sky high price.... Android vendors killed android tablets. No one else. Mediocre specs but flagship prices + pathetic batteries.

No 4G? But it packs a Snapdragon 835 which guarantees LTE support.

Actually the T835 model number suggests it's the LTE variant. Non LTE will most likely be called T830.

It doesn't guarantee an antenna or a sim-slot. 835 maybe supporting but this doesn't mean that Samsung will be implementing. Hopefully there will be a 4G version as well.... but the pricing will anyway be horrific.

can you zoom in on the gfxbench picture and read carefully "simcards:1" illiteracy is just HILARIOUS

also why would samsung not make dedicated wifi/4g models for their tablets if they have done so in the past. where is this logic even coming from. dude----

This is great news IMO, if the 16/10 screen ratio info is true this will be the long awaited successor to the Tab S 10.5. I will surely buy this. However I will wait for the 4G variant.

Where does it say that it may come with a 16/10 aspect ratio? If they do ditch the ugly 4:3 aspect ratio, I'm definitely putting my Tab S to rest and buying this baby.

It has the same resolution as the original Tab S so it must be 16/10. I hope it gets great sound and screen, with the new chipset it's all I need to replace my trusty Tab S.

I flashed mine with Lineage 14.1, and the battery life and performance improved drastically. I also downloaded an app that can now let me fully charge the tab in less than 3 hrs. Anyways, I do hope this is a successor to the Tab S 10.5, I've had bunch of tablets in the past 4 years, and all are gone now except for the S 10.5.

I've had both and I prefer 4:3 by far, it's more versatile and balanced in my opinion. No need for me to upgrade though so I'm happy for you wide-screen lovers. To be fair it would be good for Samsung to alternate between the two factors to make everybody happy.

2560/1600= 1.6 It is 16x10

A pity they don't use the best stuff for tablets. Put SD845 and at least 6GB RAM and I'll rush to buy one.

I don't understand why Samsung always uses a year old SoC. As someone who has purchased multiple Samsung tablets, I am not too thrilled by this philosophy. It's a strategy that will always ensure that Samsung plays 2nd fiddle to Apple in the tablet space.

I have the tab s3, great tablet but expensive. I am looking forward to seeing this new s4.

Yes FINALLY back to better sized 10.5" screen finally can replace my Tab s 10.5. Finally.

So less memory and a last gen SoC again, makes sense. Grace UI or whatever they call it now is not the issue, it's the crap load of bloat they have running in the background, 4GB won't be enough for a smooth experience and apps will have to reload often, same as the Galaxy S8 with 4GB.

Love my s3. Not needing to upgrade yet but this looks to be very solid.

I don't understand why is it so hard to make a decent tablet - you have more space to put a bigger battery and should have plenty of space for cooling the CPU and all.. Just make a 8" and 10" with: Latest CPU 6 or 8GB memory (I think 4 is OK, but I'm you can run dual screen easier with a tablet) 64GB with microSD waterproof (ip67 or 68) half decent resolution screen a decent size battery for long run time (over 10 hrs of real uses) a model with & w/o 4G Is that really too much to ask, because I don't think anyone makes this, there is always only half this list or less. I just don't get it..

Android itself is the main issue with tablets. As well as the expected low sales for tablets from most brands. I guess that's why not many care about extracting budgets for Android Tablets.

Money. Who would buy such a device? I know I would, but that's about it considering all people I know. They are all fine with for exemple a cheap Lenovo. Non of them will spend more money for a "kids toy", YouTube viewer and a sketch paper.

Too bad it is hard to find a great tablet 16:9 10" . 4:3 is awful for videos.

26. japkoslav

If videos are the priority, there probably isn't a better tablet than Lenovo Yoga Tablet 3 Plus 10.1" - good screen, best tablet speakers, great battery life ... but it is 16:10, whitch is still a lot better than 4:3, but still there is a wasted space.

I have a LG tablet, worst thing I have ever purchased. The only good thing about it is battery life. Tablet is 10" HD + 8000 mAh. Even with SD400 ( must be 28nm), it can last a lot. I need a high end tablet, like Sony Z4. But I dont wanna pay $550 for something from 2015.

I honestly don't care anymore, and I've had a few Android tablets. I see zero reason to purchase the Tab S3 due to price, and the Tab S4 will be the same. The same money can get you a Galaxy Book 10.6 and full windows while including the keyboard, or you can get an iPad and have quality apps.
