Samsung at MWC: Galaxy Tab S3, Rumours and Expectations

Earlier it was rumoured that Samsung might skip the Mobile fair completely, since it was almost sure that Galaxy S8 will not be released. But now Samsung’s press event that is scheduled on 26th Feb, has cleared the clouds. Although it is pretty sure that the Korean giant is still not showcasing the flagship smartphone, but that doesn’t mean that Samsung will be keeping quiet on the floor. It is expected that Samsung will launch its Tablet, Galaxy Tab S3 to balance its arch rival, Apple’s iPad and other android tablet development companies. Last year Sammobile predicted that Samsung might release a new Tab in the first quarter in 2017, without giving a specific date. On Sunday the 26th. However, Samsung has not said anything yet, it’s all speculations and expectations. Here’s what we expect from the new device from Samsung.

Power pack: Hardware

The tab may feature a 9.7 inches display with 1536 x 2048-pixel resolution along with 264 ppi pixel density, pretty similar to its predecessor, Galaxy S2. Although Samsung may bring small changes, but overall display might be the same, Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 5 point multitouch. The device will have a thickness of 5.6 inches, making it quite easy to hold and use. A leak from Weibo claims to feature a front mounted fingerprint scanner and Type-C charger. It might feature with general sensors like, accelerometer, gyro and compass.

Under the hood: Dragon inside

GFXBench leaked that Tab will feature Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM along with 32 or 64 GB of onboard memory and supporting 256 GB of card slot. However, Weibo contradicts this by a leak saying that Samsung will use its Exynos 7420 chipset along with same features. But expect that Korean android tablet development company might prefer Snapdragon over Exynos so as to improve the performance of the device. The tab might feature a combination of 12 MP rear and 5MP front camera. Weibo report also claims a Universal Flash Storage 2.0 for better launch of apps.

Other features: Extras

The device is rumoured to run Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box. Over it the device will feature Samsung's TouchWiz interface. With no word on the battery capacity, it is expected to feature 5870 mAh power house as in previous edition. Although we expect to see some increment in this. Approx. price of the device is rumoured to be around $600.

Final Words: Conclusion

Since, Samsung has not declared anything officially, we have to wait till the press event and for now, we can only expect and read rumours about the Tab. We will continue to keep an eye on the launch and continue bringing the latest updates about the Tablet and MWC as well.
