Those of you who are on the lookout for a new tablet that can support 4G speeds, may want to know some news just in. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 on Verizon will soon be available for sale and it means a brand new tablet that will support Verizon’s XLTE speeds.
Many consumers are still asking the good question of “What does Verizon’s XLTE mean” and “How fast is Verizon XLTE”. The truth is though, that the XLTE term is just Verizon’s fancy marketing spin on an a new wireless spectrum, but still defined as LTE under the hood.
However, XLTE means that Verizon can offer faster speeds in some areas, with less congestion for users and thus allowing more XLTE users to connect to Verizon’s high speeds than before.
Back to the subject at hand though, as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is coming on Thursday June 27. Within 24 hours, you’ll be able to buy the tablet for either $379.99, or $279.99 if you take out a new two-year contract with Verizon.

A quick reminder of specs as the Tab 4 runs on a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, with 1.5GB of RAM and Adreno 305 as the main graphics unit. The 8-inch version offers a display resolution of 1280×800 pixels and it comes with 16GB of onboard memory and the option to extend via MicroSD.
There is a potential disappointment though with only a 3 megapixel back camera and 1.3MP front camera – back to the dark ages on this aspect unfortunately.
Still though, it’s one of Samsung’s newer tablets and with it launching tomorrow there is a good chance that it will be due for an Android 5 Lollipop update as well. Let us know if you are interested in picking one up.
