Samsung launched its nifty Tab S4, the successor to last year’s S3. The S4 works in both classic touchscreen tablet and desktop modes thanks to Dex software that allows you to connect it to a keyboard, a mouse and a monitor, while offering an adapted interface. The S4 has a 10.5-inch, 2560x1600, 16:10 Super AMOLED display. It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and a next-generation Snapdragon 835 processor, and includes 4GB of RAM and two 13 megapixel cameras, front and back. Battery life is claimed to be 16 hours (7,300mAh). LTE-connected models should be available soon. The Tab S4 will be for sale as of August 10 for US$650 (64GB) or US$750 (256GB). An S Pen is included. Hopefully, this tablet will reverse Samsung’s dwindling tablet sales.

Ars Technica, “Samsung’s Tab S4 is both an Android tablet and a desktop computer.”
