S-series Galaxy Tabs by Samsung is one of the best names in the world of Android tablets, and it’s been a year we saw the Tab S3 announced. But, the Galaxy Tab S4 is in store at MWC 2018? Not now, but later for sure. According to a post on XDA-Developers, it is definitely planned and will be loaded with an Android 8.1 Oreo. It is most likely that Samsung Tab S4 in Australia will be available at the same time whenever it launches in the US. When will it launch? Let’s have a look.
Release Date and Price in Australia
Samsung doesn’t usually give its Tabs range yearly upgrades. The Galaxy Tab S2 was released in September 2015, whereas Tab S3 started hitting shelves in March 2017. So, there’s an 18 months gap between them. According to that, we won’t see Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 until roughly September 2018.
As far as Samsung Tab S4 Price in Australia is concerned, it will be in line with Samsung Tab S3’s and will cost around AU$780. It seems acceptable, right?

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Rumors and News
A benchmark has leaked a quite information such as it lists a 2.3GHz Octa-core chipset which is likely a Snapdragon 835. It will boast a 4GB of RAM (delivers lag-free performance when working on multitasks), a gorgeous 10.5-inches screen with a resolution of 1600 x 2560 pixels. There will be a 64GB of onboard storage and a 12MP rear and 7MP or 8MP front-facing camera with Android 8.0 operating system.
Other than that, it’s safe to take an educated guess a few more things. The display is sure to be Super AMOLED again for a start as most Samsung displays use that tech.
Perhaps, Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 will support HDR content, as the Tab S3 features it and it’s unlikely that Samsung would remove the main feature.
Based on past form, it’s safe to expect a powerful but possibly not cutting-edge chipset. Maybe a Snapdragon 835 chipset will only be available in US models of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and is top of the range right now, but would not be at the time when Tab S4 releases.
However, it is far away from its official release, but as far specifications are concerned, it’s going to be one of the best Tabs around if everything turns out to be true. To get to know more, you can have look at Galaxy Tab S4 Review in Australia here.
