Samsung Electronics South Africa has announced local availability of the Samsung Galaxy Tab4, featuring a high-resolution display and a quad-core processor.
The Galaxy Tab4 is slimmer, lighter and more powerful, combining affordability without sacrificing performance.
“The high-resolution display with a 16:10 ratio is ideal for movie and gaming enthusiasts, while the multitasking capabilities and easy sharing features make the Galaxy Tab4 a great fit for both consumers and business users,” Samsung announced yesterday.
“The Galaxy Tab4 was designed with the modern user in mind – one solution to address all aspects of daily life. It is compatible with other Samsung devices, such as televisions, smartphones and the GEAR Fit and is fine-tuned to work seamlessly across them all. Designed with the whole family in mind, the Galaxy Tab4 offers endless entertainment options. The new Multi User Mode, brilliant vivid HD display and lightweight body make this tablet easy to use and difficult to put down.
Craige Fleischer, Director of Mobile Communications at Samsung Electronics SA, added: “The new Galaxy Tab4 is available in either a 7 or 10.1 inch display boasting a rich range of capabilities. With up to eight user profiles available on the device, everyone in the household can have a personalised tablet experience with their own music, games, apps and photos. It’s the best way to keep everything organised and make sure your personal info stays private.
Some of the enhanced features of the Galaxy Tab4 are the quad core processor, true high-definition screens, increased memory, apps and the inclusion of the Android KitKat operating system, offering new android features and quicker performance.
We have recognised that mobile devices are becoming far more essential to daily life and should not be limited by performance, memory or compatibility,” said Fleischer. “The Galaxy Tab4 blends the demands of the consumer with the richness of technology to deliver a superior solution.
The Galaxy Tab4 10.1 has a true high-definition display and playback, a quad A7 1.2GHz chipset, up to 64GB of memory and all this within a chic shell that weighs only 495g and is only 7.95mm thick. The Galaxy Tab4 7.0 has up to 32GB of memory and weighs only 276g with a thickness of 9mm. The 10.1 model boasts a premium mock-leather backing whilst the Tab4 7.0 offers an improved grip and support during use as well as adding that all important element of style.
Perfect for work, home, play and travel
A light and fresh design adds a touch of elegance to the Galaxy Tab4, while making it comfortable and easy to hold while remaining extremely portable. Plus, Multi Window makes it even easier to multitask. The included camera, music player, video player and productivity apps transform these tablets into devices that fit into the 360 degrees of life – work, home, play and travel.
The Galaxy Tab4 series is designed to make the user’s life richer and to fit in with what they want, not the other way around,” said Fleischer. “The business person is also a parent and the consumer is looking for a device that can cater for the demands of these different roles. The multi-user login prevents the inevitable argument about who deleted that important app!
The Galaxy Tab4 devices have access to Kindle for Samsung, which is one of the largest e-reading platforms specifically created for Samsung devices. This service offers users 1 free book per month for 12 months. A free subscription of Bloomberg BusinessWeek and Evernote is also included assisting consumers to remain on top of the latest news and their own schedules.
The large displays and the fast 1.2 GHz Quad Core processors also allow for some down time with S Console. The S Console is a gaming platform for high quality games which are compatible with the Samsung Game pad.
With Hancom Office 2014, a mobile office programme that enables Galaxy Tab 4 devices to create, edit and view spreadsheets, Word and PowerPoint documents, users are able to conduct business and access information from anywhere.
Locally, Galaxy Ta4 devices qualify for 1GB of AlwaysOn Wi-Fi data every month for 12 months at no additional cost, at any of the 1400 AlwaysOn hotspots nationwide.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab4 range of tablets can connect, share, work and play with seamless ease across a multitude of devices and gives users the tools they need to make the most of their technology. It delivers a complete ecosystem for discerning users,” said Fleischer.
