New render of Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 shows the tablet sporting the magnetic keyboard accessory
While everyone is talking about the Samsung Galaxy S8 and its larger sibling, the Samsung Galaxy S8+, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is creating a large buzz for a tablet. That's because Sammy's new flagship is not making the trip to Barcelona for MWC. But Samsung's invitation to its February 26th event already hinted that tablets would be the star, and the Galaxy Tab S3 is rockin' some pretty fine specifications.

Earlier this week, the slate's user manual leaked out revealing a magnetic dock for a keyboard accessory. Today, a render of the tablet with the physical QWERTY accessory attached was leaked by tipster extraordinaire Evan Blass. The booklet also showed several sketches of the tablet with the S Pen, which is another accessory that you'll have to shell out money for if you desire it.

We expect the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 to feature a 9.6-inch AMOLED screen with a 1536 x 2048 resolution. Powering the slate is a Snapdragon 820 chipset containing a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB/128GB of native storage. A 12MP camera is on back with a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies and video chats. One version of the slate will be Wi-Fi only while the other will offer Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity.

They should just name it Tab S3 pro or Tab S3 Notebook to make it look more professional or productivity.

Uh, no. It's just a keyboard accessory to the base S3 model. The keyboard doesn't turn it into a completely different product.

Well iPad Pro does have support for a pressure sensitive pen (which itself is pretty good), has quad speakers, stellar performance, etc. I wouldn't say it completely lacks them, you are beyond biased. Only thing you pointed out are the homescreens. I personally wouldn't go for this particular tablet either, but dang I could wipe my ass with your argument.

Who cares about a keyboard? A good pen with solid palm rejection is much more important!

I guess you can't just hand the entire market over to the iPad. But, assuming this will cost around $500 they are.

Tablets look derpy with the buttons on the front, Samsung logo is also an eyesore Put the logo on the back, leave the front clear!!!
