Samsung on Tuesday quietly unveiled a new family of tablets, the Galaxy Tab 4 models that have not only been spotted at the FCC and in benchmark tests recently and whose press images have also been leaked ahead of launch. As previously revealed, the Galaxy Tab 4 tablets won’t be the high-end AMOLED high-resolution display-sporting devices that some people expected them to be. Instead, we’re looking at devices that will likely be very affordable when they launch this quarter, although pricing details for the tablets have not been mentioned at this time. More →
After the first purported press renders of the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 4 tablet have been posted online by @evleaks, the same leaker is back with similar images for the bigger 10-inch model. The design appears to be somewhat similar to Samsung’s Pro tablets that were unveiled at CES 2014 and launched in several markets since then. However, the Galaxy Tab 4 models will most likely pack mid-range hardware compared with what the Pro line has to offer. Meanwhile, @evleaks has not revealed any specs or launch plans for these tablets. More →
Between an upcoming flagship smartphone and a whole line of new wearables, Samsung has put tablets on the back burner for now, but a recent leak might be our first look at the next Galaxy Tab. The ever-reliable @evleaks managed to snag yet another set of press photos on Wednesday morning, purportedly showing off the 7-inch model of the Galaxy Tab 4, one of three different sizes rumored for the device. As Android Central notes, these aren’t exactly the highest quality renders we could have hoped for, with an uncentered screen and a wonky home button, but it certainly looks like a Samsung tablet in every other respect. Take a look at the device in black in the image below.
Although the Galaxy Tab 4 did not make its debut at Mobile World Congress, the next-generation tablet seems to have been confirmed by Samsung unintentionally in a recent advertisement. Planete Galaxy came across an ad (seen above) which lists all 20 devices that will be compatible with the upcoming Gear Fit, and at the end of the list is the unannounced Galaxy Tab 4. The tablet listing highlights three different sized models: 10.1-inch, 8-inch and 7-inch (the same lineup as the current Galaxy Tab 3). The Galaxy Tab 4 is rumored to feature a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 64GB of total storage and Android 4.4 KitKat. Be on the lookout for an official reveal in the near future.
It looks like Samsung will be taking full advantage of the global stage that is the Mobile World Congress later this month. ZDNet Korea reports that Samsung will not only unveil the Galaxy S5 in Barcelona, but the Galaxy Tab 4 and the Galaxy Gear 2 as well. According to ZDNet’s sources, the Samsung has prepared three different models of the Tab 4, with 7-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch screens. They will each feature a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 6,800 mAh battery, 64GB of storage (with an SD card) and Android 4.4 KitKat. More →
You know the big, bright, beautiful displays in Samsung smartphones that people just can’t get enough of? At least two new Samsung tablets set to launch in 2014 will feature similar screens. Korean-language technology news site Naver on Friday reported that Samsung is developing two new tablets with displays that use AMOLED technology just like the screens on popular smartphones such as the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3. The report claims Samsung will release both an 8-inch tablet and a 10-inch tablet with AMOLED displays, and one of them might launch alongside the highly anticipated Galaxy S5 early next year. The new AMOLED screens will reportedly be available only in high-end Samsung tablets and the company will continue to use LCD panels in its entry-level and mid-range tablet lineup.
