Samsung may finally be ready to announce its long-awaited Galaxy Tab S3. It was believed to be released way back in September at IFA 2016, but alas, nothing showed up. Since then, specifications have allegedly been uncovered by Weibo according to a source. Hence, another specification sheet has popped up and things are looking different from the performance side because the Tab S3 has been leaked to feature a far more powerful SoC than Samsung's own Exynos 7420.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Expected Specs And Features
The iPad rival will launch with Samsung's own Exynos 7420 processor, backed up by 4GB of RAM. Although, there has since been a conflicting report from GFXBench, which says the Galaxy Tab S3 will, in fact, will be powered by a Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor, alongside with 4GB of RAM.The Galaxy Tab S3 is also believed as having a 12-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, flash and HDR capabilities plus a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie shooter.
It's quite hard to say right now which processor will be used. The company did use it's own for the Galaxy Tab S2, and the Exynos 7420 is one of the company's latest. We'll have to wait for more spec leaks or the official revelation to find out for sure. The OS is Android 7.0 Nougat, which is no major surprise here. Samsung is currently updating its latest phones to the new software, so any future handsets will almost certainly run on Nougat too.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Expected Price
A tablet with a larger screen lets you accommodate a larger battery capacity and unless we'll be seeing another hardware leak in the near future, our guess is that Samsung is going to limit the Galaxy Tab S3 family to a single screen model, all the while incorporating LTE connectivity in a totally different variant. Expect it to start at $399 or It'll be more for higher storage versions.
