Samsung is all set to launch the flagship Galaxy Note 9 phablet and the Gear S4 smartwatch on August 9. But the company is also working on the Galaxy Tab S3 successor, the Galaxy Tab S4. The tablet was recently spotted on Geekbench, and has also cleared FCC certification. Now, render of the Galaxy Tab S4 has surfaced online, giving us a clearest look at the tablet.
The leaked render, courtesy of Android Headlines, shows off the front, back and side of the tablet. From the back, there is very little difference compared to the Tab S3, with the camera and LED flash placement remaining the same. One small change though – while the Tab S3 has the “Tuned by AKG” logo, the Tab S4 will likely come with “Samsung | Tuned by AKG” logo.

The front, on the other hand, looks different. The bezels along the top, bottom and sides are not thinner. It is likely to come with a larger 10.5-inch display, compared to the 9.7-inch one on the Tab S3. It seems like the tablet will come with a different aspect ratio. Also, the new tablet does not seem to feature a physical home button, and so it may skip the fingerprint sensor. Past rumors have hinted at iris scanning tech on the tablet, and we need to wait to see if it actually makes way to tablet when it is officially announced.
Talking about the specifications, the Tab S4 could feature 4GB of RAM with 64GB storage. It is also likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC. Under the hood, a 7,300mAh battery is expected, and it could run on Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung UI on top.
The Galaxy Tab S4 is also expected to come with a 13-megapixel rear snapper and an 8-megapixel front camera. Past rumors have also hinted that it will come with Samsung DeX support. There is no word on the launch date yet, and with the Galaxy Note 9 announcement on August 9, the Galaxy Tab S4 could likely see an unveiling at IFA 2018 in Germany.
