Samsung has revealed in a post on its Colombian website that it plans to unveil the Galaxy Tab S3 next month. The post also gave out some hints regarding the specifications of the tablet, as well as the improvements compared to the Galaxy Tab S2.
The main improvement will apparently be a more powerful processor under the hood, along with an improved operating system. Clearly, the tablet is going to ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, with the latest TouchWiz UX from Samsung running on top. There are some other important innovations as well, which the company doesn’t want to talk about right now.
The Galaxy Tab S3 has been leaked online several times over the past few months, so we do have a pretty good idea of what to expect. According to the various leaks so far, it has been established that the Galaxy Tab S3 will come in two different screen sizes – 8” and 9.7”. As for the processor, leaked benchmarks point to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset powering the tablet, paired with 3GB of RAM. As for storage, the tablet is expected to offer 32GB of onboard storage, which should be expandable further with a microSD card. A 64GB variant could be offered as well, just like with the Galaxy Tab S2.
On the imaging front, the Galaxy Tab S3 could come equipped with an 8MP camera at the back and a 2MP resolution camera on the front for video calls. We’re sure not many of you will be taking a lot of selfies with the Galaxy Tab S3, so the 2MP resolution isn’t too bad. In terms of battery life, the 8-inch variant is going to be more or less identical to its predecessor, with a 4000mAh capacity battery inside. The 9.7-inch variant is most likely going to sport the same 5870mAh capacity battery as the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7-inch model. More info on the Galaxy Tab S3 is likely to surface soon, as we head closer to September.
