August is shaping up to be a busy month for Samsung, with the electronics giant announcing the Galaxy Note 9 at an Unpacked event in New York on the 9th, and likely unveiling the Galaxy Gear smartwatch and the new Galaxy Tab S4 at IFA 2018 in Berlin. Speaking of the Galaxy Tab S4, a well-known leaker has managed to get his hands on a few images of Samsung’s newest flagship tablet, one of which shows the device attached to its optional keyboard cover.
The renders come courtesy of Evan Blass and show that the Galaxy Tab S4 looks surprisingly similar to its predecessor, right down to the “Tuned by AKG” branding. The image above shows the Galaxy Tab S4 in either white or silver and doesn’t show much if anything new other than possibly the addition of a chrome rim for the rear camera.

The most notable change involves the design of the S Pen which has moved from a squared-off shape with a matte finish to a rounder design with a glossy finish with chrome accents and a somewhat sleeker button.
While it’s entirely possible that Samsung could launch the Galaxy Tab S4 at the same time as the Galaxy Note 9 at the Unpacked event in New York on August 9, I would think it was more likely to be unveiled during IFA 2018 in Berlin at the end of the month. My reasoning for this is that Samsung won’t want the Tab S4, or the Galaxy Gear smartwatch for that matter, to take any attention away from the Galaxy Note 9 launch. Time will tell if my hunch is correct, in the meantime, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a whole lot more leaks before anything is made official.
