Galaxy Tab S4 gets closer to launch with FCC approval
There have been many leaks about the rumored Galaxy Tab S4, Samsung’s flagship tablet, in the past few weeks. Most of them have pointed towards the imminent launch of the tablet in the near future. The tablet has now received FCC approval, following in the footsteps of the Samsung’s upcoming phablet.
As is the case with FCC listings, nothing much about the device is revealed other than the model number and a rudimentary sketch of the back panel. The sketch shows a single camera setup at the top and ‘Tuned by AKG’ branding along with the FCC ID at the bottom – all of which look similar to the Galaxy Tab S3. The SM-T835 model is listed as LTE capable which means the Wi-Fi variant will probably carry the SM-T830 model number as expected.
May launch at IFA 2018
Though the FCC documents are scarce on details, we already know some of the specifications about the alleged Galaxy Tab S4 from earlier leaks. It is expected to launch with a Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB internal memory, and Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. A seemingly credible leak from China also added iris scanner and DeX support to the list of rumored features.
As far as the official launch is concerned, reports online suggest that Samsung might unveil the Tab S4 at the IFA 2018 along with the Gear S4. IFA 2018 will be held from 31 August to 5 September in Berlin, Germany. Samsung has not announced any launch date for its flagship tablet so far.
