Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S3 may be on track for a Q1 2017 launch


It looks like the Galaxy Tab S3 series is set to continue at some point in 2017. The device has seemingly appeared at Zauba’s import database, which is a sign that it’s currently undergoing international testing.

The database entry didn’t give any details beyond the fact that it’s a Samsung tablet, though previous rumors suggest it’ll be launched with a 9.7-inch display, the supposed sweet spot for big tablets (or so says Apple, anyway). We’re also expecting that display to be of the Super AMOLED variety.

To get an idea of the level of tablet we’re likely to see, here’s how the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 filled out for a 2015 model:

  • 2048 x 1536 resolution SAMOLED display
  • Octacore processor (1.9GHz quad + 1.3GHz quad)
  • 32GB/64GB internal storage with micro SD card slot
  • 3GB RAM
  • 8MP rear/ 2MP front facing cameras
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac MIMO (2.4GHz/5GHz), WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, GPS, GLONASS, Accelerometer, Finger Scanner, Gyroscope, Compass, Hall Sensor, RGB Sensor
  • LTE : 700/ 800/ 850/ 900/ 1800/ 1900/ 2100/ 2600
    3G : 850/ 900/ 1900/ 2100
    2G : 850/ 900/ 1800/ 1900
  • 5,870mAh battery (9.7-inch), 4,000mAh battery (8-inch)
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

It’s safe to say, then, that Samsung wants to bring something in the high-end segment to compete with the likes of the iPad (whereas the Galaxy Tab line without the S is more for those on tighter budgets). Anyway, Q1 2017 — that’s the release window to keep in mind if previous rumors are to be believed.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
