Earlier, The Samsung Galaxy S8 & the Galaxy S8 Plus probably the most anticipated device for this year till now. While we all wait for the epic revealing of these two smartphones, newly leaked renders of Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 have shown on the internet. We are just a couple of weeks away from the tablet’s official reveal at the MWC 2017 show floor, and we already have a good look at what we can expect from the company. It is not the first time that we are seeing this device, as we have previously reported about it as well. However, now we have some more info and a clear look at the S Pen as well.
There was a lot of speculation regarding Samsung bundling an S Pen with the Tab S3, which have now been put to rest as we clearly see the S Pen alongside the Tab S3 in the leaked renders. However, it is not going to be a very practical use case scenario, since there is not slot within the tablet itself to rest the S Pen when not in use. This is something that the Note lineup is known for as you simply insert the pen when it is not in use. Here with the Galaxy Tab S3, it looks like the Pen has to be carried separately.

Other than that, we also learned that Samsung will be skipping the 8″ variant of the tablet and will go only for the 9.7″ variant this time around. This makes a lot of sense as 9.7″ is pretty much the ideal size for a tablet. And talking about the specs of the device, it looks like the tablet will be running on the Snapdragon 820 chipset which is not too old, to begin with. Hence you can expect some great performance from the tablet. The chipset will be paired with 4GB of RAM which should be again ideal for keeping most tasks in memory at a given time.
The 9.7″ display will have a resolution of 2048 x 1536 which should give it a decent pixel density. The camera optics includes a 12MP rear facing main camera and a 5MP front-facing selfie shooter. Few other details which we know about the tablet are that it will come with a 32GB of internal storage, Cat.6 LTE, Gigabit Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity. Apart from this, not much info is available at this point, however, we not too far from the official announcement date and hence we should learn about the tablet more very soon in coming weeks. If you wish to be the first to know more about the tablet, then be sure to stay tuned to PhoneRadar for details.
