Verizon Galaxy Tab4 8.0 4G LTE

Apparently that Copper Gold Galaxy S5 isn’t the only Samsung device that Verizon is planning to add to its shelves in the near future.

An image that purportedly shows a Verizon-branded Samsung Galaxy Tab4 8.0 has leaked out this morning. Shared by @evleaks, the device looks similar to the Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Tab4 8.0 that debuted earlier this year, complete with a physical home button, capacitive Recent Apps and Back buttons and a faux leather backside. Just like its gold Galaxy S5 sibling, though, this unit includes a Verizon 4G LTE tattoo beneath its rear camera.

It’s unknown when this Verizon-bound Galaxy Tab4 8.0 will launch or how much it’ll cost when it does. However, Samsung is currently asking $269.99 for the Wi-Fi-only 16GB version of the Galaxy Tab4 8.0, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Verizon tacks on a $50 or $100 premium for its 4G LTE-enabled version.

As a quick refresher, the Galaxy Tab4 8.0 features an 8-inch 1280x800 display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 3-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front cameras, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, 1.5GB of RAM and a 4450mAh battery.

UPDATE: A second image leak has revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Tab4 10.1 is also Verizon-bound. Check out the leaked render below.
