Samsung releases Galaxy Tab S4

06 Aug 18

Samsung NZ has announced the Galaxy Tab S4, the latest in their line of tablets for high-performance requirements.

“At Samsung, we believe tablets play an increasingly important role in making lives easier and improving the mobile experience for everyone,” says president and CEO of Samsung Electronics DJ Koh.

“With the Galaxy Tab S4, we’re introducing a premium tablet, equipped with Samsung DeX that helps consumers perform their absolute best wherever they go. We look forward to providing our customers with a sense of leisure and comfort knowing that this new addition to our ecosystem of connected devices is also packed with features to help them stay entertained.”

“We’ve enhanced our winning Android tablet design by adding features that help you stay productive on the go – from the improved screen to the S Pen and the inclusion of Samsung Dex,” says Todd Selwyn, Head of Product for Samsung New Zealand’s Mobile division.

The Tab S4 is the first Galaxy tablet to feature Samsung DeX, a desktop-like interface that makes multitasking simpler.

Users can enable Dex mode on the device alone, or paired with the keyboard case  and a TV, monitor or other external display to create a full workstation.

There is also an option to extend Samsung DeX to an external monitor with a compatible HDMI to USB-C multi-port adapter.

When connected, the Galaxy Tab S4 can serve as a trackpad or a sketch pad, or continue to work as an Android tablet, giving users two screens.

The 7,300mAh battery provides up to 16 hours of video playback.

It also includes Knox, Samsung’s mobile security platform, customers and companies can ensure critical information is protected at multiple levels of the device.

IT managers can also tailor the employee interface to align with business needs.

The screen is a 10.5-inch display with thinner bezels, a 16:10 screen ratio and Super AMOLED display.

For audio, it has four speakers tuned by AKG and Dolby Atmos immersive sound technology.

It also includes Samsung Flow, for connecting and transferring files, tasks and notifications between devices; the SmartThings app for smarthome devices.
