Evan Blass has tweeted out an official render of the Galaxy Tab S4 with matching keyboard cover. Although difficult to confirm from the image, the Samsung logo and Home button appear to be absent from the front of the device confirming earlier rumors to that effect.
Sanjiv Sathiah,

An official press render of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 has been leaked by reliable tipster Evan Blass. One of the few major OEMs still making high-quality Android-powered tablets, the Tab S4 follows closely in the footsteps of its predecessor the Galaxy Tab S3. However, key changes appear to include slightly thinner bezels along with the removal of the Samsung logo from the front of the device as well as the Home button.

Apple has never placed a logo on the front of its devices, perhaps confident in its designs are easily identifiable and because it is a potential distraction from the user experience. While a small touch, the removal of the logo from the front of the device is a positive step. The apparent lack of a Home button is perhaps more interesting, however, as it leaves questions as to the approach to biometric authentication. The most likely scenario is the use of its front facing cameras for facial recognition and/or iris scanning.

In keeping with Samsung's tradition, the Galaxy Tab S4 will get an upgrade to a Snapdragon 835, but will remain a full generation behind its flagship smartphones. The display is thought to offer a resolution of 2560 x 1600, an upgrade over the 2,048 x 1,536 display on the Tab S3. Not yet confirmed either is whether it will continue with a Super AMOLED display, but that seems almost certain. Sound will continue to be tuned by Samsung subsidiary AKG and delivered over four speakers. Pricing and availability still isn't official, but the leaked render suggests this information can't be too far away.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
