Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 with S Pen, DeX support launched in India

Samsung on Thursday launched in India its flagship tablet, Galaxy Tab S4, a new two-in-one Android tablet that comes equipped with Samsung Dex and S Pen for Rs 57,900.

The tablet portion has a 12-inch, 2160 x 1440 Super AMOLED display that looked nice and colorful in my short hands-on. The Galaxy Book 2 packs Qualcomm's Snapdragon 850 chip that's been designed specifically for Windows 10 devices, and features LTE support.

We got a few hours to fiddle around with the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 just after the unveiling and while we can't jump to conclusions just yet, we did get a fair idea of what's there in store for the potential buyers.

In Standalone mode, one can enjoy a PC-like interface even without a monitor or the "Book Cover" Keyboard, Samsung India said.

That makes it taller, thicker and heavier than the Galaxy Tab S3 (which has a smaller 9.7-inch display), and also thicker and heavier (but not as tall or wide) as the iPad Pro 10.5. In effect, this will allow Samsung, and any manufacturer that buys the company's OLED panels, to create a truly bezel-less device sans notch. It now includes built-in DeX, which we have seen on the Galaxy Note 9.

Galaxy Watch brings the best of the Samsung's Galaxy ecosystem with long-lasting battery life, LTE connectivity, wellness capabilities and a timeless and personalised design. Samsung promises an enhanced S Pen experience with 4,096 pressure levels and a pen tip of 0.7mm diameter. The tablet also rocks a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 400GB. Further, Samsung has added adaptive fast charging technology to help users save some time. Back at MWC 2017, the firm launched the original Surface Book, which featured a 7th-gen Intel Core i5 processor.

The whole package including the tablet, S Pen stylus, and keyboard costs $999.99, and it'll be available online from AT&T, Microsoft, and Samsung on November 2nd. What this means is that you can simply connect the tablet to your big screen (TV/Monitor/Projector) using an HDMI cable. All of them support AKG as well as Dolby Atmos audio that guarantees a range of sounds in a surround sound experience.
