We’ve been hearing for a few months now that Samsung has a new tablet in the pipeline. It’s going to be the successor to the company’s flagship Galaxy Tab S2 Android tablet that it launched almost two years ago. The latest development is that the Galaxy Tab S3 has now received its FCC approval which means that it has passed one major hurdle before eventually being released in the near future.
Samsung is going to make an appearance at the Mobile World Congress 2017 event in Barcelona next month. The company has already confirmed that it’s not going to show off the Galaxy S8 at this event.
However, it’s going to make some product announcements at MWC 2017 and it’s very likely that the company will formally announce the Galaxy Tab S3. Recent reports suggest that the company will also release this tablet in Korea by March, other markets would then follow over the coming weeks.
Rumor has it that the Galaxy Tab S3 is going to feature a Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM, Android 7.0 Nougat as well as a 9.7-inch display. It’s likely going to be available in both LTE and Wi-Fi only models.
No word as yet on pricing details but we will find that out soon enough. Mobile World Congress 2017 takes place in the final week of February.
