Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 release date: Device available in 8-inch and 9.7-inch variants; release date leaked?


Speculations have it that the next generation device, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, was supposed to be unveiled during this year’s IFA event in Berlin, Germany. However, with the conference having wrapped up its five-day gathering, details regarding the gadget still remain a mystery.

According to reports, an apparent post on the South Korean company’s Colombian website suggests that the release of Galaxy Tab S2’s successor supposedly should’ve coincided with the launch of the latest smartphone dubbed Galaxy Note 7.

“With a processor greater capacity for processing information, along with an operating system that allows interactivity with elements that require good performance on a mobile device,” the translated text reportedly reads.

“Samsung gives expect the upcoming release of the Galaxy Tab S3, which apparently has similar qualities to its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab S2, but with some innovations so far not known,” the description continued. The teaser was allegedly taken down so that Samsung can make the official announcement themselves. However, it remains to be seen if this comes to fruition.

When it comes to the specifications, tech enthusiasts expect that the new tablet will have impressive high-end features possibly available in two versions the usual 8-inch model and a larger 9.7-inch variant. The former is deemed to have an AMOLED screen display in 2048p resolution.

Under the hood, the device may sport a faster and more powerful Snapdragon 820 processor combined with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage. The memory may be expanded to 128GB via a microSD slot card. While mixed reports claim that it could be powered by Exynos 8890 chip.

The design may likely be thinner compared to the previous models. It may also have support for new applications such as Android Play, Now on Tap, Google Browser, and a recently improved Doze feature.

Since there is no official announcement regarding Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, the available information mentioned should be taken with a grain of salt.
