Xiaomi and Huawei, has been doing well in this aspect, forming very formidable rivals to Samsung in China, India, etc.
Samsung announced its new Galaxy Tab S4 tablet today, in advance of Unpacked. The tablet includes quad speakers with AKG and Dolby Atmos support, and an S Pen is included. The Tab S4 has features like screen-off notes we've seen in previous years' Galaxy Note devices. And it has a 237.3 x 169 x 6.0mm build, so it's slightly thinner than its successor. There is an LTE model also that will be available later, but no details are available.
Ahead of the big announcement, Samsung has opened up reservations for the flagship. Featuring a refreshed design, enhanced parental controls and new home connectivity capabilities, the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is the flawless complement for the modern household.. The former model came in 9.7-inch and 8-inch options. It's Super AMOLED and has a pixel density of 287ppi thanks to its 2560x1600 resolution. In addition, the Tab S4 is also the first tablet to feature a hardware-based facial recognition system and sports an Iris scanner on the front just like the company's high-end phones. The device has already been reported to be released in two different storage variants, one with a 128GB space and the other with 256GB.
The tablet is charged via a USB-C port, while Bluetooth 5.0 functionality is also available.
It's an unusual move from Samsung when the firm normally prefers unveiling new products on stage at big events packed with guests.
For selfies, there is a single 16MP camera on the front.
"The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 delivers an experience that helps you work smarter by keeping you operating at the highest levels".
Here's the Tab S4's keyboard cover by itself.
Much like the Galaxy Tab S3, the Tab S4 is a minimalistic, streamlined tablet, equipped with Samsung's own S-Pen stylus, which Samsung is including in the box.
It will retail for £599 for the WiFi version, whereas the £649 version offers a 4G connection. Large Android devices never found a market, so the majority of Android apps were designed for small smartphone displays. The Galaxy Tab S3 starts from £599.
As the video shows, the Tab S4 doesn't deviate too far from its predecessor's sleek, curved-edge black exterior, although it does have substantially trimmed down bezels. For all those reasons, the Tab S4 looks better on paper.
In the United States market, the tablet will launch at a somewhat eye-watering US$650 on August 10 (that'll give everyone something to do after the Galaxy Note 9 launch the day before).
