Samsung Galaxy Note 9, the next flagship smartphone from the South Korean giant, received US FCC certification yesterday. Now, another Samsung-made device has popped at the agency, which could be the Galaxy Tab S4, expected to launch later this year.

While the FCC listings generally do not reveal details like specification, it does reiterate that the flagship tablet will carry model number SM-T835. It also confirms that the tablet certified by FCC supports a number of LTE bands along with WiFi and Bluetooth. Samsung is likely to launch a WiFi only variant and it is said to carry model number SM-T830. The certification by FCC also carries a visual sketch revealing the rear panel of the tablet.

It shows the placement of the FCC ID and new “Tuned by AKG” branding towards the bottom of the rear panel. This suggests the tablet will have improved audio performance over its predecessor. The leaks so far indicate the Galaxy Tab S4 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the flagship processor from last year.

The Galaxy Tab S4 could be equipped with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. One of the major changes this year could come in the form of boost in battery life. The flagship tablet is expected to pack a 7,300mAh battery pack. The tablet is likely to feature a 10.5-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.
