After listing on GFXbench websites and leaked in clear renders, Samsung has officially announced the new Galaxy Tab S4 tablet. Defined as a 2-in-1 device, the South Korean tablet is dedicated to both business and consumer users, thanks to the presence of the S Pen and the ability to connect it to the PC via Samsung DeX.
It is the first time that Samsung has dedicated the proprietary DeX solution to the tablet world: through the Book Cover Keyboard (sold separately) or through the Quick Panel, the Android mobile interface is “transformed” into a desktop experience. Useful especially for those who travel for work and do not want to bring a laptop. With DeX you will be able to access many apps, including the Microsoft Office suite. Need more workspace, maybe for a presentation? No problem, Samsung DeX connects to an external monitor with an HDMI cable to a USB Type-C multi-port adapter. In this way, Galaxy Tab S4 can function as a trackpad or sketch pad as a second screen.
So there is no lack of the S Pen, useful for the job and to give more satisfaction to the designers. The new S Pen lets you take notes on the fly through the Screen-Off Memo feature, as well as navigate, translate and organize notes through Samsung Notes, and even send personalized texts through Samsung Live Message.
