Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 with S Pen leaks out
by Florin Troaca / Feb 13, 2017, 8:17 PM
Succeeding the Galaxy Tab S2, the Tab S3 should be a thin, high-end tablet running Android 7 Nougat out of the box. Earlier this month, we saw what could be the rear of the Galaxy Tab S3, and now we have an image showing its front.
As you can see below, the Galaxy Tab S3 doesn't look too different from the Tab S2, though there is one notable novelty: the new tablet is accompanied by an S Pen stylus. However, it's said that the slate does not have a stylus cradle, which means the S Pen will be a separate accessory (likely offered at no extra cost).
S Pen stylus aside, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 supposedly features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB of RAM, up to 128 GB of storage space, and a 12 MP + 5 MP camera combo (rear and front).
Contrary to previous rumors, WinFuture notes that the Galaxy Tab S3 won't come in multiple sizes. Thus, it's expected that only a version with a 9.7-inch, 1536 x 2048 pixels display will be released - in Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi + LTE flavors. Reportedly, US carriers are planning to sell the LTE model for about $500.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will be announced on February 26. Do you think you'll want to pick one up once it hits shelves?

Very disappointed at how Samsu g ruinrd the Tab S. The first was to show how the iPad was so lacking for the same amount of money. Then they ruin it by making the Tab S2, just like an iPad. Addi f a pen means nothing, accept that no new 12" Note is coming.

My Tab S 8.4 is far from perfect. 16GB was never enough. The speakers are in the wrong place, ok only In a quiet place. I'd prefer a slightly wider screen. I've had to replace the battery because it was only lasting half a day (and it never was brilliant). When they didn't replace the note 8 it was the best alternative. I want a tablet to USE not to show off, so bland is good. A stylus is excellent. 9.7 is a little bit big for carrying around ; my tab s fits in the patch pocket of my trousers, or in the breast pocket of my waterproof jacket.

Of course everything is just a rumor at this stage, but if the S-pen part is true, just kind of wonder the logic behind it. Why on earth would you offer an S-pen in the box without creating a slot in the tablet for it? I can foresee a lot of lost S-pens! The only logical explanation is that the decision to include the S-pen was an afterthought after the tablet design and chassis had already been finalized or maybe even entered production. Also, it does not seem all that big of an upgrade over my Note 10.1 2014 Edition which runs Nougat courtesy Lineage OS 14.1
