The Galaxy Tab S4 is the first tablet in the family to support Samsung Dex.

Samsung is unveiling two new tablets – the Galaxy Tab S4 and Galaxy Tab 10.5 – ahead of its Samsung Note 9 Unpacked event in New York next week.

"With the Galaxy Tab S4, we're introducing a premium tablet, equipped with Samsung Dex that helps consumers perform their absolute best wherever they go. We look forward to providing our customers with a sense of leisure and comfort knowing that this new addition to our ecosystem of connected devices is also packed with features to help them stay entertained," said Samsung Electronics president and CEO DJ Koh in a statement.

The Galaxy Tab S4 is the first tablet in the family to support Samsung Dex, which lets users switch from the Android interface to a desktop experience.

It is also equipped with an S Pen, where the stylus' 0.7mm fine tip can reportedly detect 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity to allow a more natural and intuitive writing and drawing feel.

With a 10.5in Super Amoled display, the Galaxy Tab S4 has a 16:10 screen-to-body ratio which supposedly results in an 11% larger viewing area compared to its predecessor the Galaxy Tab S3.

Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa core processor, it has a 7,300mAh battery, with 3GB RAM and 32GB or 128GB internal memory that is expandable to up to 400GB with a microSD card.

There is a 13-megapixel main camera, and a 8-megapixel front-facing camera. It also has four Dolby Atmos speakers on all corners of the tablet for a more impressive audio experience.

"Featuring a refreshed design, enhanced parental controls and new home connectivity capabilities, the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is the perfect complement for the modern household," said Jason Lee, director and head of tablet product strategy group at mobile communications business, Samsung Electronics in a statement.

As the name states, the tablet has an 10.5in WUXGA (1,200 x 1,920 pixels) LCD screen, with a 16:10 screen-to-body ratio thanks to its slimmer bezels.

Running on the latest Android 8.1, the tablet is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa core (1.8GHz) processor. It is sustained by a 7,300mAh battery, with  3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory that is expandable to up to 400GB with a microSD card.

There is an 8-megapixel main camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with flash.

The tablet supports multiple accounts, and parents can choose to manage their children's content with the Kids Mode that features Kids Browser, Galaxy Apps for Kids and eight free child-friendly apps.

You can also manage your connected home appliances via the SmartThings app, and use the tablet to control the television as well as other compatible appliances in your home, for example the company's smart washing machines.
