Alleged Galaxy Tab S4 benchmark reveals specifications

The Android tablet market has been staring at an uncertain future for some time now. Between lack of interest from Google, lackluster customer demand, slower replacement cycles, and phablets cannibalizing sales, demand for tablets has slowed down. IDC recently published its tablet shipment numbers for 2017 which revealed that the global tablet market saw a 7.9% decline year-on-year while Samsung’s tablet shipments were down by 6.4%, conceding the second spot to Amazon Kindle Fire tablets.

Taking note of the uncertainties in the tablet market, Samsung has been lying low in the Android tablet space for the last couple of years. The company has cut down on the number of models and the frequency of new tablet launche. Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S3 last year as its flagship tablet. Though the tablet itself was a good performer, the Android tablet experience left a lot to be desired. If we are to believe a listing on the GFXBench benchmarking website, then it seems Samsung has plans to launch a successor to the Galaxy Tab S3.

An Infinity Display finally?

As per the GFXBench listing, the alleged Galaxy Tab S4 (model number SM-T835) sports a 10.5-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. It will run Android 8.0 Oreo and will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory. It will come with a 12-megapixel rear camera and a 7-megapixel front camera. While the internals point towards an evolutionary upgrade, there are rumors that the Galaxy Tab S4 will receive a major design refresh in the form of an Infinity Display.

The Galaxy Tab S4 was one of the unannounced devices mentioned in the leaked Galaxy Note 8 Oreo build. Apart from that tiny hint, so far, we haven’t come across any credible information about the Galaxy Tab S4’s existence or launch date. Although benchmark results can be fabricated easily, Samsung working on a successor to its flagship tablet shouldn’t be much of a surprise.

If the Galaxy Tab S4 is indeed in the works, then one would expect it to make an appearance, along with the Galaxy S9 , at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona later this month because the Galaxy Tab S3 was unveiled at MWC 2017. However, there’s no concrete evidence available as yet to support the theory. There isn’t any evidence of firmware development for a device with model number SM-T835.

Dam, and i just got my Tab S3….I knew i should have waited…

So have I but got it for a very nice discounted price. This new tablet will probably be very expensive at launch and it will take a while to be at a decent price. Also I prefer 4:3 and there’s no guarantee it will come with the S Pen so I’ve got no regrets.

If only they had decided to include specifications as premium as those of the S9+ ( like the exynos processor), we would finally have something worthy of competing with the ipad pro. Hoping they will not sell the pen apart.

Gonna finally replace my Tab S 10.5! HDR on this would be fantastic!!

looks rather disappointing on the Spec front with only 4GB of RAM, especially compared to thee Note 8. With that OLED display (Presume it is still OLED) it would have been the perfect accompaniment for Photographers for quick edits and photo management on the go.

At this point I’d just rather wait for Samsung to take on some risk next time, re-energize the Tizen effort and start putting out some serious tablets. Become the real force to go against iPad or even upend the tablet space if you will. Core hardware angle already covered namely Exynos, RAM modules and storage etc. Only the code side is where Samsung need to sharpen up their A game. Because let’s face it boys. Android in its current form are just already too good and focused on most phablets, when even most iPhone “Plus” fanatics would either sell off… Read more »

If it comes with a 16:9 ratio (Though I’ve read it might come with 8:5 aspect which I have never seen before) and not 4.3 I will probably upgrade my beloved tab S 8.4 even if it’s not 8 inch (my favourite size). Also, depending on the price.

?

Your Tab S IS 8:5 .

Is it? I’ve always thought that the Tab S 8.4 is 16:9 ratio, is it the same? because according to the article I read this morning doesn’t seem so.

You are right I just checked and the Tab S 8.4 is 16:10 (8:5 ratio) not 16:9 as I have always thought, perfect!!! Thanks.
I really hope the Tab S4 comes with this aspect ratio and not so expensive. An 8inch variant would be great.

Interesting that Samsung will still release tablet with Android. Android tabs are basically dead and Chrome OS is knocking on the door.

They’ve been saying that for years and it’s still nowhere ready.

I’m so glad it has the same resolution and aspect ratio as the original Tab S 10.5! My good old Tab S 10.5 has gotten really slow but it’s still a perfect Netflix machine and it has no burn-in whatsoever. I might upgrade just for the sake of HDR thought.

hoping this time that high-speed memory ( ufs 2.1 ) is not yet reserved only for their smartphones galaxy S.
Only the slow eMMC storage is not a good fit for a premium tablet and heavy applications.

What the hell is an infinity display anyway? Surely it’s not a 18:9 ratio because the resolution numbers don’t match. Stupid round corners? Even worse, *gasp*, a curved display?

Do you get paid for using the term or something? No idea why it gets thrown around so much.

Infinity Display is Samsung’s term for a bezel less screen! The clue is the name – infinity! as in never ending screen. No bezels.
It is not an aspect ratio and certainly not a curved display as that is called ‘Edge’ and the A series have infinity displays without the curved glass. Round corners? is there something in particular you like doing with the corners that round ones are terribly offensive for you?

and Synaptics adopted the term themselves, its a very fitting terminology

The A8 has plenty of bezel so that doesn’t make much sense. And bezels on a tablet are a pretty good thing. As are square corners. Why on Earth do you want less display? Do you buy your office paper with the corners cut off?

It all sounds like marketing nonsense to me.

You think the A8 has plenty of bezel compared to last generation? it is a budget bezel less device.
and I was just answering your question – I prefer some bezel on a tablet too. If office paper came with rounded corners it would not bother me at all – well it would sometimes but that’s just because I do Origami.

Infinity display is just a marketing term devised by samsung for smartphone displays. Actually its also an upgraded oled tech . The actual space between display and glass is minimal . Thats why u dont see air gaps and ofcourse is a long aspect ratio

Stop asking for andorid 8.1 and complaining for not getting 7.1.1… don.t you all understand that samsung in the 8.0 update already fixed everything google fixed in 8.1. Samsung separeted from the android update thing as it uses only an image from google. You are not using an android anymore. You are using a samsung experience which is an OS based on android. thats how it should be called. Sammobile should make a post regarding this thing and explain this to everyone. Stop complaining about every update everytime. You don.t like samsung go buy anything else and i guarantee you… Read more »
