Samsung Malaysia has launched two tablets – the Galaxy Tab S4 and Tab A 10.5 (2018) – each with its own key features and specialities.
The Tab S4 is the first Samsung tablet to feature built-in support for Dex which allows you to hook it up to a monitor using a HDMI adaptor so you can use it as a desktop. It also supports most Bluetooth keyboards and mouse.
Sporting a 10.5in display, the Tab S4 is just right for work, gaming and watching videos, and has four speakers tuned by AKG with Dolby Atmos sound technology for bringing audio to life.
It has a 7,300mAh battery that is claimed to support up to 15 hours of video playback.
The tablet comes with the multifunctional S Pen stylus which lets users write on the screen without unlocking the tablet. You can also use the stylus to send animated handwritten notes in your conversations, and translate words and phrases.
The Tab S4 runs on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and has 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. Memory space can be added with a microSD card.
It also has a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera.
The other tablet – the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 (2018) – is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor and has a 10.5in display, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage that can be expanded with a microSD card.
It also has a 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera, and a 7,300mAh battery.
Both tablets feature Kids Mode, a child-friendly tablet interface designed to make learning and entertainment safe and fun.
This mode also includes a Kids Browser, Galaxy Apps For Kids and eight free child-friendly apps, and allows parents to manage content and usage time.
Families can also use Multi User Mode to create multiple accounts – for example, one account for a child with separate accounts for the parents.
The tablets also come with the SmartThings app which makes it easy to monitor and control smart home devices right from the tablet. And it has a Daily Board feature that allows users to view their favourite photos and daily information such as the weather and calendar in one place.
The Galaxy Tab S4 is priced at RM3,099 and the Tab A 10.5 (2018) at RM1,699. Both tablets come in Black and Grey and are available at Samsung Experience Stores and authorised dealers. For more information visit samsung.com/my.
