Can I use a Samsung Tablet A and Connect to my 645Z to View Images

I have an Android tablet A and want to connect this to my Z and view the images as I take them. Just want to make it easier to show the person I am shooting the images without showing them the rear LCD on the Camera
If not can you recommend something that will do what I am looking to do. I would like at least a 6" Monitor. TY DEnnis. Maybe an Older IPHONE that will allow me to plug in a cable from camera to Iphone

I use a Samsung Tab A with my K1mii as a remote and sometimes to view images on a bigger screen using the Ricoh Image Sync proprietary software. The wi-fi connection can be a bit flakey, and it sometimes requires several reconnections. Transfering images over the connection is very slow for RAW images, ok for JPG the few times I have used that feature. My allegedly smart phone did not believe the possibility of a wi-fi connection with no internet, hence the use of the tablet. Need to find the camera menu that contains the camera password to hook up to the software. If done often, the two devices remember each other, and no re-entering should be necessary. Make sure the image display in the software is set to camera.
