Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 price and release date

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 price and release date

Earlier today, Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab S4 - its newest high-end Android tablet. Similar to its predecessor (Galaxy Tab S3 from 2017), the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 comes with an S Pen stylus in the box, thus offering functionalities that regular tablets simply don't have.

True to its high-end nature, the Galaxy Tab S4 is not cheap. You'll have to pay $649.99 for the Wi-Fi-only model with 64 GB of storage space, or $749.99 for the Wi-Fi-only 256 GB model. These prices include an S Pen, but not a keyboard cover. However, if you reserve the Galaxy Tab S4 on Samsung's official website (see the source link below), you will be able to buy a keyboard cover at half the price - $74.99 instead of $149.99.

A Verizon LTE-enabled Galaxy Tab S4 is also available for reservation. While its price is currently unknown, we're pretty sure that this will be more expensive than the Wi-Fi-only versions. Reservations can be made only before August 10 - this appears to be the US release date of the Tab S4. After that day, you'll have 72 hours to complete your purchase (and you won't be charged until you do so).

Compared to the Tab S3, the Galaxy Tab S4 looks better, benefiting from a modern design with relatively thin bezels around its 10.5-inch, 1600 x 2560 pixels Super AMOLED display. The new tablet is unsurprisingly more powerful, too, thanks to a Snapdragon 835 processor (which is superior to the Snapdragon 820 found inside the Tab S3).

I am an Android user, however, the Apple Pencil’s agility and the fact Procreate is only on iOS is making me switch. I am just waiting for the iPad Pro refresh.

TBH Wacom pens are superior in terms of ergonomics, no need to pair, or charge but certainly responsiveness is, thx to 120Hz panel, much better. Procreate is a beast app and I am not sure there is as good alternative on Android (most likely not). It's an interesting dilema for me - I hate Apple stylus, but I really like Procreate.

I was in denial about how Procreate is the better mobile drawing app, and with the Apple Pencil being the best with tilt and pressure input than a Wacom system. I was trying very hard on surviving with Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, and I could actually able to up to 10,000 x 10,000 pixels on my Note8. However, there is no perspective grid on Sketchbook. Procreate perspective grid is just awesome. Making the iPad 2018 work with the Apple Pencil for $450 total had me getting the 128GB version 2 weeks ago. Wacom, Samsung, and some drawing app developer need to step up. The AMOLED screen of the Tab S4 is certainly nice, but I am not spending on something that would not surpass the drawing experience with Procreate and Apple Pencil. I use my old Wacom stylus rubber grip with the Pencil.

Oh, how is that not laminated screen treating you when you draw? For me it's really hard to sketch or write, when there is a gap. On my older Note it didn't bother me that much, becase there was hover over functionality ("shadow" where it will start drawing). We will see, maybe, in the end, I will buy something like Ztylus and try to wrestle with Apple stylus for a while ... again. Hopefuly new iPad Pro will be a decent device, hopefuly Apple will not do something stupid like 3,5mm jack? Off you go.

If the RAM is increased, I can forgive the absence of the fingerprint scanner. The gap that everyone else seems to keep mentioning is not an issue - I don’t see, nor be affected n my drawings.

Another flop for samsung tablets. The price is almost the same as ipad pro and yet its apps are totally garbage.

Productivity devices require productivity apps. The iPad has created such a strong community of developers and users that it’s hard to beat. The entry level iPad is still much better than s4 not only price wise but also app wise. And of course there’s the pro.
