Samsung reveals newest tablet: the Galaxy Tab S4

Samsung has introduced its newest tablet, the Galaxy Tab S4, calling it the tablet for “people who want to do more on the go.”

In a Wednesday release, Samsung touted the device as a tablet with the capabilities of a PC.

In at least one sense, that’s objectively true: The Tab S4 is Samsung’s first tablet to be equipped with the company’s DeX software, which allows users to switch between Android and desktop interfaces.

With DeX, according to the release, a user can open multiple desktop-style windows directly on the Tab, and even drag, drop and resize different app’s windows. Samsung calls it a tablet that “helps you work smarter by keeping you operating at the highest levels.”

The tablet also boasts longer battery life (7,300mAH) than its predecessors, with Samsung promising the device will last up to 16 hours, a 10.5 inch AMOLED display with a 16:10 screen ratio, what the company is calling a ‘refined’ S Pen and four AKG-branded speakers.

According to its website, the Tab S4 is available for pre-order starting August 3.
