Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 – Design
While a bezel-free design may be more problematic for tablets than for phones, after all, you need edges to hold a large tablet, we are glad to see the beveled frames on the Pestaa of the S4.Slender bevels are consistent around of the tablet, and it also means that there is no logo of Samsung Not a start button on the front.Add a cleaner and minimalist look.

The Galaxy Tab S4 It comes with a larger screen of 10.5 inches and a large resolution of 2,560 x 1,600. That gives a measure of pixels per inch of 287, lslightly higher than that of the S3 tabThanks to the radical thinning of the frames, the Tab S4 is really similar in size to the Tab S3, despite the larger screen.
Like its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab S4 has a speaker in each of its corners.The association with the audio company AKG He has also returned, and Samsung has promised even a louder sound.

But the most interesting software change is the addition of Samsung DeX.No, don't try to insert your Galaxy Tab S4 in a Dex Station orDeX Pad to place your work on an external monitor; instead, if you connect the tablet to a keyboard case, the Samsung DeX interface is automatically activated. DeX is Samsung's Android desktop mode, which makes the interface much more productive when a keyboard and mouse are connected.
