Samsung on Wednesday sent out invitations to members of the media for a keynote presentation on February 26 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. While Samsung has already announced it will not be showcasing the Galaxy S8 at this year’s MWC, all signs point at the launch of the Galaxy Tab S3.
The South Korean giant has released a teaser image (via Twitter) of the upcoming device which depicts a silhouette of the tablet with a physical home button at the bottom. The outline seems to be wide, which also suggests this is a tablet, and not a smartphone.
During the Mobile World Congress, Samsung will focus on Galaxy Tab S3, the company’s next-gen premium tablet. Leaks claims this tablet will arrive in two variants – the Wi-Fi model (SM-TB25) and LTE (SM-T820). According to Naver news, the tablet will come with a 9.6-inch display, a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB RAM, 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera.

The high-end tablet is said to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. It will flaunt a metal-clad design, measuring just 5.8mm in terms of thickness. In respect to the price, the Galaxy Tab S3 is rumoured to cost around 700,000 won (or Rs 40,889) when it launches in Korea.
It’s been more than a year since, we saw a new Galaxy Tab S tablet being announced in the market. The Galaxy Tab S2 was launched way back in August 2015, so its successor is long awaited. MWC 2017 will also see the launch of other flagships from companies like LG, etc. However, Samsung is delaying the Galaxy S8 launch to late March, according to reports, which have also said the company has called first dibs on the new Snapdragon 835 processor.
