After being a no-show at the latest IFA event in Berlin, rumors are that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will be released at the end of 2016. According to recent reports, the company decided to give the launch of the device a miss, alongside the Samsung GALAXY Note 7 because they intend to include some cool features into the tablet.
Some of the exceptional features that the tablet is said to come adorned with are an AMOLED display, a 4K resolution panel, an option of two screens and much more.
The Samsung GALAXY Tab S3 is expected to hit the markets, providing options of two variants. One according to the latest speculation, will sport an 8-inch screen while the other will boast of a 9.7-inch one. Both these will have an AMOLED display with a 4K resolution.
It was expected that the Galaxy Tab S3 would in all likelihood launch earlier this summer. However, there appears to be a delay for the roll out of the said tablet, which has sparked the generation of a lot of rumors.
The first expected date which was missed was back in June and July. Although the Galaxy Note 7 was expectant of a release during the same time, we later saw its singular release on the 2nd of August. As of yet, there is no official news regarding the unveiling of the much-hyped Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, only speculation from fans and experts.
Internet rumors state that the hardware of the Samsung Tab will be powered by octa-core Exynos 8890 SoC, the same one that is found on Galaxy Note 7 as well as the global variants of Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 tablet runs on 4GB of RAM and has its two storage variants of 32GB and 64GB.It is expected to feature an 8-megapixel rear camera along with a 2-megapixel front camera.
Even if fans are skeptical or disappointed about the specifications of the cameras offered, the device will, according to the grapevine, be launched with a 4000mAh and 5870mAh battery for 8 inches and 9.7-inch devices respectively.
It will also contain USB-Type C port for quicker data transfers and charge facility.
In the software specs department, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system, which will deliver an excellent user interface and additional specs like makeshift notification panel, Vulkan API for improved graphics and 3D effects, not to mention enhanced security along with privacy features.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is probably be priced around $420 for the 8-inch variant. Still, what remains the most interesting rumor is simply the fact that the device will come pre-installed with Android 7.0 Nougat, out of the box.
The Galaxy Tab S3 will come with a curved-edged display, in which, the display’s aspect ratio changed to 16:10.
Christian today wrote in a post on their site that according to Andrew Martonik of Android Central it is highly likely that Samsung is content with its the current model. He further stated that Samsung might feel that the tablet sales will not be big enough to rationalize the launch of a new model.
In April however, Samsung updated the Galaxy Tab S2. Providing it with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor. We are still in the dark whether this is the tech giant’s efforts to boost the line of the tablet for 2016.
The hardware change is not much of a massive leap, according to Android Authority. For they argue that the original came with an octa-core Exynos 5433 processor with a 20nm manufacturing process.
