Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 ready to be unveiled alongside new Book Cover Keyboard
The fourth-generation Galaxy Tab S is likely to be announced at this year's IFA trade fair, but that doesn't mean that we can't get a little bit of info on the upcoming tablet. Over the span of the last four weeks, the Galaxy Tab S4 popped up online two times and both times we got a few more details about the tablet.

For example, we already know Samsung plans to include a Snapdragon 835 processor inside and Android Oreo. Apparently, the tablet was spotted again today with a new model number (SM-T737P) that suggest the Galaxy Tab S4 will be launched at Sprint.

Along with the Galaxy Tab S4, Samsung may announce another accessory for the tablet, a new Book Cover Keyboard. The accessory has been recently certified in South Korea and the model number next to it – EJ-FT830 suggests it's specially built for the Galaxy Tab S4, also known as SM-T830 and SM-T835.

Other leaked details about the Galaxy Tab S4 indicate the table will pack 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory, as well as a 10.5-inch display with 16:10 aspect ratio. The tablet and the new book cover keyboard are likely to be revealed in late August / early September at IFA 2018.

Lovely....only wish it uses SD845.

I've never understood why they keep putting yesteryear's flagship chipset in the tablet which has arguably a bigger need for better performance or at least equal to the handsets.

A smaller device with flagship SOC costs mostly $1000. This one with a much bigger (thus much more expensive) AMOLED display and costs 2/3. So what do you expect?

Expect a custom made SoC with even more grunt than SD845, like apple does for their ipads.

I'd take the OLED display over a more powerful SoC, which frankly, have been good enough for years for the kind of work tablets are used for.

Actually, it's not so much a price factor, but the fact that the SD845 wasn't out when they started developing the Tab S4. For whatever reason it's taking them a while to release it compared to the Galaxy S9 which they spent less time on and were able to include current SoC. Their tablets aren't as high of a priority.

Or SD850 or even a custom build exynos with even more grunt!

Android tablets have been seriously lacking these last few years. There isn't much of a need to upgrade over my old ass LG G Pad 8.3 from 2013 which runs great on AOSP.

How are they lacking? I mean a Snapdragon 835 is still a very capable chip. And the S-Pen is a very necessary productive tool to many people including myself. I was personally going to buy the Tab S3 but I'm waiting.

I hope they make an 8.4” variant

I'll be getting one regardless but I'd love the smaller option. I'm still rocking the OG S 8.4 for work on the go and video at home.

Why doesn't Samsung try to make a sequel to the original Galaxy Note 10.1? Launch the tablet alongside the next Note iteration like it did before. Put in an Exynos chipset since it doesn't matter to have LTE radios in a tablet anymore (most people buy the Wi-Fi versions anyway), and actually compete with Apple's iPad Pro. Heck, they could even call it a Galaxy Note Pro for all I care.

well good point but also their Tab S3 already supports the S-Pen though no silo.

You either make the tablet too thick, or the pen too thin. They made the right call.
