We may not be far away from seeing the official launches for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4 after both devices have passed through FCC certification.

We8217;ve been seeing plenty of leaks and rumours surrounding the Galaxy Note 9 in recent months, but the Galaxy Tab S4 has gone under the radar. The last we heard of Samsung8217;s new tablet was in May when it passed through Bluetooth certification, suggesting a launch was imminent. We haven8217;t heard anything since then, but an FCC filing is more of a confirmation it will be launching soon.
The filing refers to the Galaxy Note 9 with the model number SM-N960F, which follows on from the Note 88217;s SM-N950 model number. However US Galaxy flagships usually have model numbers ending in 8216;U8217;, while 8216;F8217; is for European/International models with Exynos processors. It8217;s a little strange considering FCC filings refer to US products.
The Galaxy Tab S4 meanwhile has the model number SM-T835, which infers it8217;s an LTE model that will likely arrive on Verizon in the US. There is also an image of the back of the Tab S4 within the filing, which shows a design similar to the Tab S3. There8217;s a camera location at the top in the centre, although it8217;s slightly lower down, and it will once again have speakers tuned by AKG. It looks as though the Tab S4 could be slightly taller than its predecessor, suggesting a larger screen.
With the FCC filing appearing now, it8217;s highly likely both devices will launch within the next couple of months, which would tie in with Bloomberg8217;s claims of a 9 August event in New York, for the Note 9 at least.
