The mobile business booked a 34 percent fall in operating profit to 2.7 trillion won ($2.4 billion) in the second quarter, its biggest decline since the Galaxy S7 was Samsung's flagship model early past year.
Where the device really stands out, though, is its 1,920 x 1,200 display, which means that users will be able to consume their media on the go with a device that'll presumably be pretty affordable.
The tablet is available from 10th August, and will cost £599 (WiFi model) or £649 (LTE model). Over the past few years, Samsung has tried to make the most of Android by making tablets that were closer to convertible laptops than standard slates.
Previously, Dex was a Samsung platform created to let phones like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 8 perform traditional laptop duties by letting you hook up a mouse, keyboard, and monitor via a propriety external dock.
For folks fearless enough to take photos and videos with a giant slate, Samsung equips the Tab S4 with a 13-MP world-facing camera plus an 8-MP front-facing camera. The four speakers on the device are tuned by AKG and Dolby Atmos sound technology, also an upgrade from the Tab S3.More news: Paul Manafort fraud trial: Manafort accused of amassing "secret income"
Today, Samsung unveiled their updated lineup of tablets: Tab S4 and Tab A 10.5. "Featuring new family-friendly entertainment options and enhanced audio and visual features, the Galaxy Tab A 10.5" is ideal for enjoying your favorite movies or shows at home or on the go.
However, if you thought this was merely going to be another ordinary Android tablet, think again.
However, you can forget all about Samsung's phone for the time being, because one of its biggest rivals is about to come out with a phone that might offer Galaxy S10-grade specs this year.
Smartphone manufacturer Samsung posted its Q2 2018 financial results, revealing its slowest quarterly profit growth in more than a year. When docked in the Book Cover Keyboard or launched from the Quick Panel, Samsung DeX will give you use a more desktop-like experience, complete with multiple desktop-style resizable windows for your Android apps. And yes, it supports S Pen as well. The company is redefining the worlds of TVs, smartphones, wearable devices, tablets, digital appliances, network systems, and memory, system LSI, foundry and LED solutions.
It's true that tablets aren't as popular as they used to be, and that we haven't seen new products lately. "Featuring a refreshed design, enhanced parental controls and new home connectivity capabilities, the Galaxy Tab A 10.5" is the flawless complement for the modern household".
US Cellular will get it "later in Q3 2018".
