Less than a month since it surfaced with Android 8.0 Oreo onboard, the upcoming Samsung SM-T835 tablet hits the GFXBench database with Android 8.1. The graphics performance is slightly lower with the new software version, so it might take a while before they launch this 10.5-inch slate.

If those waiting for the successor of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 get lucky, this upcoming slate will come with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. For now, the latest update of the GFXBench page showing the Samsung SM-T835 slate added Android 8.1 and a new set of benchmark results.

According to Tabletmonkeys, who compared the benchmark results for the Samsung SM-T835 with Android 8.0 and Android 8.1 installed on the same hardware, "Tessellation Offscreen is down from 80.9 fps with Android 8.0 to 76.3 fps with Android 8.1, while the 1080p ALU 2 Offscreen results went from 90.4 to 82.8 respectively, so Samsung may still have some tweaking to do."

Compared to the previous GFXBench visit of the Samsung SM-T835, some missing features — such as autofocus and touch focus for the rear camera — have been added now. The specs list remains unchanged: an unknown Snapdragon processor with Adreno 540 graphics (most likely the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835), 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, an 8 MP selfie shooter, a 13 MP main camera, as well as a 10.5-inch display with no less than 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. 

The official announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 (SM-T835) is probably still a few months ahead, so those who are planning to get a premium Android tablet with stylus support, AKG-tuned speakers, and maybe even a detachable keyboard should start saving, because one thing is certain: the Galaxy Tab S4 will not come cheap.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
