Fresh off yesterday’s Galaxy Note 9 FCC appearance, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 has now stopped by as well. The device has appeared at benchmark sites and in a leaked picture or two in recent weeks, likely as it readies to join the Note 9 for an August launch.
The device at the FCC today is listed as model number SM-T835. While the documents do not say “Galaxy Tab S4,” the model number scheme fits into that line. The Galaxy Tab S3, which was announced well over a year ago, sports model numbers of SM-T820 (WiFi) and SM-T825 (LTE). The Galaxy Tab S2 was model SM-T810. The 800 series of numbers has clearly been reserved for the Tab S line. Don’t be surprised if the WiFi-only Tab S4 is SM-T830.
In the FCC docs, we see that this particular Galaxy Tab S4 will feature LTE support. This device (FCC ID A3LSMT835) supports LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 17, 66, and 41, as well as the GSM frequencies you would expect.
Other bits of info we discovered show a device that is 249.3×164.3mm and has Bluetooth 5.0, 802.11ac WiFi, and a non-removable backside. The Galaxy Tab S4 will have audio “Tuned by AKG” too (see below), as well as a single camera on the rear.
Other rumors (thanks to benchmarks) for the Galaxy Tab S4 suggest Android 8.1, Samsung Experience 9.5, a 10.5-inch display (2560×1600), Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage (with SD support), 13MP rear camera, and front 8MP camera.
The Galaxy Tab S line is typically Samsung’s best, so if you have been in the market for a fresh big screen, hold off for a bit.
