iPad Pro 11"/12.9" vs Galaxy Tab S4 vs Google Pixel Slate: Specs comparison
Apple just announced two new iPads that are not only some of the fastest mobile devices in existence, but also overhaul the old-and-tried iPad design that was generally left unchanged for years. Gone is the home button, enlarged is the screen, and the slate as a whole has been thinned-down to ludicrous extent to achieve a super-sleek footprint.

Design aside, the new iPads are truly hardware beasts in the most sincere definition of the word: powered by the Apple A12X Bionic chip, which is pushing the limits of the already super-fast A12 even further, the new slates are rivaling most notebooks out there in raw performance.

But how do the new slates fare against its rivals from another makers, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and the Google Pixel Slate? While the iPads might be in a league of their own as far as performance goes, we should consider the package as a whole and compare the new devices pound for pound, which is exactly what our specs comparisons are designed to do.
