People aren’t that into the Galaxy S9, Samsung’s earnings show

"We are proud to announce the Galaxy Tab A 10.5", Samsung's latest addition to the tablet lineup with capabilities that make life easier, and more entertaining for the whole family", said Jason Lee, Director and Head of Tablet Product Strategy Group at Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics.

A sluggish market for premium mobile phones and stiff competition contributed to a decline in Samsung's smartphone shipments and revenue compared to the previous quarter, denting demand for its flagship Galaxy device, the South Korean company said.

The Galaxy Tab S4 also features Samsung's Knox enterprise security suite, optional LTE support, a 13MP rear camera, 8MP front-facing camera and four iPad Pro-esque speakers, which Samsung says are turned by AKG. By enabling Samsung Dex, and connecting the keyboard cover, even a Bluetooth mouse, you can have a desktop-like experience on your tablet. This discount applies to customers on Sprint and AT&T too, in case you're not a fan of the Big Red carrier in the first place.

The company just unveiled its latest flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S4.

The Tab S4 features a 10.5-inch 2,560 x 1,600 screen.

Internally, the Tab S4 comes loaded with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM.

When connecting Samsung Dex to an external monitor via HDMI to USB-C adapter, the Tab S4 will continue to work as a fully functional tablet, which will give users two screens for tasks. When it comes to video, however, the Galaxy On8 can only capture Full HD videos at up to 30fps and not 4K like some of the other smartphones that are available for around the same price. The Galaxy On8 is the new online-exclusive smartphone from Samsung India. Samsung once had such tablets that sported S Pens so we'll have to wait and see.

Samsung said competition would intensify in the second half as new smartphone models were released, prompting it to introduce a new Galaxy Note earlier than usual.

Once in DeX mode, the tablet portrays PC desktop-style user interface, and through a variety of apps optimised for it, then allows the user to enjoy a laptop or hybrid-style experience, with re-sizable windows, right click options, and drag and drop functionality.

"People are doing work differently than they've ever before", Samsung's Alanna Cotton said at a media event today.

Although there's $100 to quadruple the storage, the tablet has a microSD card slot able to take up to 400GB.

The real BIG inclusion though is in-built Samsung DeX. It will be available on Sprint and US Cellular later in Q3 2018.
