Samsung has scheduled an event in Bengaluru on 20th June i.e tomorrow where the company is most likely to launch its Galaxy Tab S3 tablet. The tablet was first sighted in the MWC 2017 and now seems to be arriving in India. The company has apparently started sending out press invites which although doesn’t mention the launch of Galaxy Tab S3 but it is highly speculated to do so.
Coming towards the specifications, the tablet sports a 9.7-inch QXGA (2048 x 1536 pixels) Super AMOLED display and has got a 2.15 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood. The device comes with 4 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage which is expandable up to 256 GB via microSD card. The Galaxy Tab S3 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.
In the imaging department, the tablet sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with flash and 4K video recording and a 5-megapixel front camera for selfies and video calls. The tablet comes with Wifi only and LTE options, while other connectivity options include, Wi-Fi 802.11ac with 2 x 2 MIMO, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS, and USB 3.1 Type-C port. The device packs a 6,000 mAh battery with support for fast charging, enough to keep it ticking for 12 hours as per the company.
The sensors on board include accelerometer, fingerprint sensor, gyroscope, geometric sensor and RGB sensor. The Galaxy Tab S3 also comes with S-Pen stylus in the box, and support for Pogo Keyboard Covers. The tablet measures 237.3 x 169 x 6 mm and weighs 429 grams for the Wifi only variant, where as 434 grams for the LTE variant.
Talking about a few highlights of the Galaxy Tab S3, it comes with Air Command functions like Smart Select and Samsung Flow, which apparently makes working on the go easy. The Samsung Flow makes use of biometric authentication for log-in purpose and can even wirelessly tether to other compatible devices. This proves quite handy to those who wish to transfer documents from their mobile phones to their tablets. The device also syncs message notifications, therefore allowing users to keep a tab of all the important incoming text messages.
