- The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is priced at Rs. 57,900
- It comes with a bundled S-Pen
- The tablet has a great display and loud speakers
Even with slumping Android tablet sales and customers losing interest, Samsung has been one of the few OEMs to consistently upgrade its mid-range and premium tablet lineup. The South Korean manufacturer unveiled its latest flagship model, the Galaxy Tab S4, in India last month, as a competitor to Apple’s iPad Pro.
The Galaxy Tab S4 comes bundled with a redesigned S-Pen that has a proprietary tip. A departure from the previous-gen Galaxy Tab S3’s design, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 sports an even sleeker look with smaller bezels, and comes packed with premium internals. However, it costs as much as some professional laptops, so there are a lot of aspects to factor in before deciding whether this is the right gadget for you.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 design
With a larger 10.5-inch Super AMOLED panel, the Galaxy Tab S4 is just slightly thicker than last year’s Galaxy Tab S3, at 7.1mm. It sports the same glass back design that is now seen on Samsung’s entire flagship smartphone lineup. Despite its tablet-sized proportions, the glass back is not slippery at all and the Galaxy Tab S4 can be easily held in one hand. The tablet is not thick enough for a silo for the stylus, so you will have to carry it around separately unless you buy the keyboard folio case or another accessory that can hold it.
While still not on par with the Infinity Display design of the Samsung Galaxy S9₹ 45,350 and Galaxy Note 9₹ 59,750, the tablet does have smaller borders compared to the Galaxy Tab S3 (Review). Expectedly, Samsung has had to make borders thick enough for users to hold onto them without triggering any unwanted responses on the touchscreen with their thumbs.
