SEOUL, Aug. 2 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electronics Co. on Thursday unveiled two new tablet PCs, the Galaxy Tab S4 and Galaxy Tab A 10.5, in line with efforts to diversify its mobile portfolio.

The new tablet comes with 13-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras. The storage capacity options are 64 GB and 256 GB, which can be extended up to 400 GB through micro SDs.

"Paired with a polished modern design, an immersive display, four speakers and enhanced entertainment features, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is the perfect device for those who need something portable like a tablet and capable like a PC," the company said.

Samsung said the tablet's Knox security system will also guarantee top-notch safety in terms of protecting private information.

The tablet comes with the S-Pen, boasting various features, including translation and even sending customized messages through Samsung Live Message.

"We look forward to providing our customers with a sense of leisure and comfort knowing that this new addition to our ecosystem of connected devices is also packed with features to help them stay entertained," the company said.
