Replacing a laptop with a tablet has long been the dream of tech companies. The latest effort to do this comes from Samsung with its new Galaxy Tab S4, a 10.5-inch Android tablet designed to offer the best of both worlds – the ease of use of a tablet and the power of a notebook.
The Galaxy Tab S4 has everything you’d expect to take on the laptop form factor: at 10.5 inches it’s nice and big, it has a high-resolution display with a high pixel-per-inch count (236ppi), and it’s powered by the exceptionally-capable Snapdragon 835 chipset.
And with its 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage that can be upgraded significantly with a memory card, it’s clear that the Galaxy Tab S4 is a highly capable device that can challenge the appeal of the average business notebook.
It also has the ability to turn into a desktop system. This is thanks to the Samsung DeX dock, a piece of hardware that lets people hook tablets and phones up to a keyboard, mouse, network point, and monitor. The dock accommodates all connections, and lets phones and tablets connect and disconnect very easily.
Here it is in action:
And yes, that means you can now use the tablet as a tablet, and then when you reach your desk (at home or at the office) you can slide it into its dock and use it as you would a desktop or laptop system.
Just the ticket
This is just the ticket for people who use their tablets to send emails, surf the web, or use cloud-enabled services through their browsers or remote terminal software. It’s also great for watching videos and listening to music, either undocked or on a bigger screen.
The good folks over at WCCFTech have done a full review on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, and their conclusions were very positive.
And here’s the official video Samsung put out introducing the Tab S4 to the world:
