Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 wants to replace your iPad Pro and laptop

When we thought Android had basically given up on the world of high end tablets, leaving free ground for the iPads and Surfaces of life, it came from there to Samsung to show that there is no lost battle in this world.

The South Korean presented today the Galaxy Tab S4, your new top-of-the-line tablet with a basic yet ambitious goal: replacing a notebook while maintaining maximum portability while at the same time selling a few iPad Pro.

The Tab S4 features a beautiful 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display (2560 × 1600 pixels resolution) surrounded by minimal edges, which forced Samsung to remove the start button from the device and with it any digital player in Instead, we have the traditional face and ir readers here. The software is Android 8.1 “Oreo”, but South Korean, of course, has a number of cards up its sleeve to enhance this experience.

Chief among these is DeX, a feature already featured in the latest Galaxy S and Note that gives your device superpowers of productivity. On Tab S4, the special software allows you to open up to 20 windows simultaneously on the screen and work as on a normal computer, with a real keyboard and mouse, to activate DeX, you need to connect Samsung's official keyboard case (sold separately by $ 150) or a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
