Three years ago, Google's Nexus brand released the Nexus 7, which had unheard of specifications in its price range. It proved that an affordable tablet did not need to be much of a sacrifice. As such, it received a good following. But that was three years ago, and Google is expected to revamp the tablet soon. Meanwhile, Samsung's own line of tablets has been doing well and the anticipation for the Galaxy Tab S3 is at an all time high.
Samsung's Galaxy Tab S3
As noted by Trusted Reviews, the Galaxy Tab S3 should hit the market within the next few months and will take plenty of inspiration from the successful S7 handset.
The upcoming tablet from Samsung is expected to arrive powered by the Exynos 8890 chip. However, it is also possible that the tablet gets fitted with a Snapdragon 820 chip instead, which is in no means a step down. Either way, the chip will be hidden beneath a suspected AMOLED screen, in 8 inch and 9.7 inch models. The Galaxy Tab S3 might also have a 4K display.
It is also expected that the Galaxy Tab S3 will come in 32GB and 64GB internal storage options, possibly even a 128GB variant.
When it comes to speed, the Galaxy Tab S3 is expected to come with at least 3GB of RAM, though it is possible to come with 4GB of RAM. In addition, the rear and front cameras are expected to be 8 megapixels and 2 megapixels respectively.
Nexus 7 Successor
As Digital Trends points out, rumors surrounding the next Google tablet has been consistent in terms of manufacturer. That is that Google will again partner up with Huawei and the two will release the new tablet before the end of the year.
Other details are rather scarce. For example, the device is rumored to have a 7 inch display and will run on 4GB of RAM, but there has been no mention of its possible processor.
However, the device is likely to debut without the Nexus branding, as it has been long speculated that Google will be rebranding its gadgets.
