Last week, three new models in what could be the Galaxy Tab 4 series were ousted through a series of leaks. Today, two of these tablets, with model numbers SM-T530 and SM-T330, were certified by the FCC. These two models are for the Wi-Fi only editions of the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 4 8.0. FCC certification indicates an imminent launch for these tablets, which could mean an official unveil next week at the Mobile World Congress. There is no news as far as the design of these tablets is concerned, but it is likely that they will look similar to tablets in the Galaxy Tab 3 series.

Both the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 share similar hardware, which sees a screen resolution of 1280 x 800, quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory and Android 4.4 KitKat. Both the 10.1-inch and 8.0-inch versions of the Galaxy Tab 4 are said to come in three variants: Wi-Fi only, 3G and LTE. The LTE 10.1-inch version is said to feature 1.5 GB RAM, with other hardware remaining the same. There is also a 7.0-inch variant in the series that would constitute the entry-level offering.

    This madness of versions after versions have became a joke. Launches a new device and immediately forgets the previous Samsung. Not updated, finally: abandon. And you sucker gets face.

    i don’t want buy tab product line again, i buy p5100 tab2 2 years ago and never get properly update and then tab3 t311 released and i buy it until now i never get 4.3 or 4.4.2
    if i buy tab 4 which is 4.4.2, i think i wouldn’t get 4.5 or android 5, so i must buy a new tab 5 again to get newer os, samsung crap.

      Is the latest OS really neccesary? Update support is one thing, sure, and these tablets would most likely get the next Android version at least, but beyond that point is it always neccesary to have a newer version? If it works, it works…

        yep it’s really neccesary for me, why i buy the next version from tab2? because i realize that tab2 10.1 spec was not good enough(1gb ram and 1ghz dualcore proc) to handle above android 4.1 so i think it’s better move to higher spec which is my choice come to tab3 8.0 which has 1,5GB ram and 1,5ghz dualcore proc, and i’m sure it can handle up to 4.4
        and when i buy this tab3, it do not even get 4.3, and even the older galaxy s3 already get 4.3
        when i use tab2 in my country (XSE) just stuck at 4.1.2 and when i use tab3 it just stuck at 4.2.2 a.k.a first release os and never get any incremental update. and in my tab3 there is battery bug and random blank screen bug in 4.2.2 that wasn’t only me, some of the other has that bug too and some of them go for custom rom.

        so i think it’s pure samsung marketing ploy to only give their flagship series get the latest support. and for the tablet, samsung force us to get a new tablet every year even you have a high spec tablet (old galaxy note 10.1) you won’t get new os(it just stuck at 4.1.2), and now tab4 has teased. so i must get tab4 to get the latest support then?

        It’s not always necessary to get the latest OS. But Android is still developing and for example new API-levels open totally the new world. For example smart accessories and apps require new OS to operate (API-level). There are apps on Playstore for smart accessories and message is simple “this app works only… because…” People who have bought pricey tablets on last year or even on this year, are still stuck with android version 4.1.x (e.g. Galaxy Note 10.1 (N8xx)) while many other cheaper phones and tablets are already upgraded. Their first tablet that was going to change the world – atleast it changed peoples thoughts about Samsung and how they feel about this company.

        If you buy a computer, you don’t expext to buy another just to get a new os. Or do you? If e.g. Samsung doesn’t offer them for free, they should start to sell upgrades then. They have built their own UI on Android and to get a newer OS, people need to wait for Samsung and their decission. Android is totally going to the wrong direction. At first everything was ok and it seems to be that when a new android version came, it only tooks some time when you got it. Nowadays it depends on a luck. And if this is going to be the situation in the future too – I definitely jump off from a Android train.

        Buying a new Samsung toy to get a new os? Yeah, right! Atleast nowadays you know, if you buy a product from Samsung, it is a question of a luck, do you get and upgrade or not. If you change your tablet on every year, go with Samsung and you will be satisfied. If you want to keep your device for some time and get upgrades, buy something else. iPad would be a good choice because Apple doesnt abandon their customers right after they paid the money – even years old ipads get upgrades. Cant really say yet anything about windows. Time will tell.. But now it is sure that with Samsung you really dont know what happens and it’s not making it any easier when they launch new products all the time… Before autumn, they will be a new tab line and pro line etc. Trust me!

    IMHO Samsung are losing the plot with all these new Tablets they are bring out and they really need to look at their pricing or they will soon price themselves out of the market unless you are rich, £649 for the G Note Pro 12.2 in the UK but only £450 in the USA. Crazy it really is
