And while an update has been rumoured for a while, it's only now that we're getting some solid information on what the new Galaxy Tab S4 will look like.
The Note 9's S Pen, which has a model number of EJ-PN960, will connect to the Note 9 over 2.4GHz Bluetooth LE. This means it may give it several functionalities, such as controlling music and capture images. While there is no official confirmation, the first look of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is now leaked online. The device is also expected to be released soon. Samsung seems to have something big planned for the Note 9, though.
Other than some stylus-specific spec bumps, the S-Pen has remained relatively unchanged since the original Galaxy Note.
Roger Federer Leaves Nike for Uniqlo
ESPN reported Federer's earnings on-court are around $116m, making this new deal more than double his current tennis paycheck. Federer, who had been wearing Nike since 1994, will continue wearing their shoes as Uniqlo does not make sports footwear.
My guess is that the S Pen's button will work similarly to an action button on a pair of Bluetooth headphones.
Popular tipster Ice Universe claimed in a post on Weibo, shared via SamMobile, the key upgrade Samsung will be making is the addition of the new remote features. Up front there's an 8-megapixel camera with f/1.9 aperture and features like "Selfie Focus" and "Beauty Mode". Those features will be enabled, thanks to Bluetooth, which is confirmed as an S Pen feature according to the FCC. The devices will be available various Colours including Blue, Black, lavender, purple & Gold colors. Meanwhile, new renders shared by Android Headlines, have tipped some details. There is no physical home button on the J8, but rather, software buttons. This is in addition to a 13-megapixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. This has led a few to believe that the tablet may be one of the first Samsung devices with a fingerprint scanner under the screen, though it is more likely that this is a feature that would be saved for a future flagship phone. It also confirms that there won't be any physical navigation here, but also no "Infinity Display", as fairly large bezels surround the screen.
