Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 render and latest rumored specs appear
by Alan Friedman / Feb 04, 2017, 11:05 AM
Today, a render of the Galaxy Tab S3 has surfaced, and appears to be based on the sketch that Samsung provided for the FCC certification. The single camera setup with the flash directly underneath is seen on both the drawing and the render. There is some speculation that Sammy will employ a dual curved-edge display which would be a first for one of its tablets.
The latest rumored specs include a 9.6-inch AMOLED screen with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, and a 4:3 aspect ratio. Under the hood is the 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 Type-C USB port in on board, and the camera combo weighs in back to front at 12MP and 5MP respectively. Android 7.1 is pre-installed.
We should find out all of the missing pieces, including pricing and availability, on February 26th in Barcelona.
- Display 9.7" 1536 x 2048 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2150 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 6000 mAh

I would definitely buy this if the specs are as stated in the article. I have never owned a tablet before (only had a hyprid Windows 10 HP, so I dont think it counts as owning a tablet)

If you do plan on getting one know you won't get updates for a very long time

LOL said as if you have a choice. People that say things like "I don't care about updates" would only be genuine if they actually had a choice of updating but chose not to become they don't care. With pretty much every Android phone (bar Google phones), you don't get a choice to update, it just doesn't come for 6+ months, and even that if you are lucky. You won't get an update, weather you care about them or not, that is the point. Why would anyone reject newer versions of the base Os that bring more security and stability, plus fixes.

Even if your phone gets 10 updates, it will still do less out the bix than a Galaxy. Stop acting like updates are a prioriry. Some people nwvwr update. Tbey could care less. At lease when we get and update, it doesnt break, brick or lose your data.

"Why would anyone reject newer versions of the base Os that bring more security and stability, plus fixes." Easy, some people don't like to wait for the update to download. Others think it uses up too much memory or It might cause more problems. If the phone is already working perfectly, they don't need to bother updating it. Downloading updates will also mean you can't use your phone for few minutes and people don't like that. You need to be around with people more to understand how they think, not everyone is like you or me.

OS updates are KILLING the mobile devices. Every mobile device , even iPhones.(though iOS are minor functionality updates) Never update OS in your mobile device more than once. If you want good performance for long time. Here, I warned you.

If it was 16:10 it would be my next tablet since I need a HEVC 10Bit tablet and no such tablet exists yet. Waterproofing would be nice too but it's not necessary as long as there is a splashproof otter box available.

I hate the iPad copy... Make it extraordinary! 10 inch 2560x1536 screen with a beastier performance or SOMETHING... OH! Maybe bring the 16:10 screen back because the 4:3 one on the Tab S2 looked extremely annoying in best buy...

If this sports a dual edged curved screen like the galaxy s smartphone series, it should be a hit. I would buy it even if I need to take out a loan. I currently have a Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition tablet and it is still a beast after 3 and a half years. I am yet to encounter any game or application to challenge its raw grunt. The S pen rocks as well. Pity that Samsung has not rolled out at least Marshmallow for it. It should do nicely with Marshmallow.

Why on Earth people like the abominable edges, I'll never know. The way a white website's colours get distorted and turn blue on the stupid edges just drives me insane. I can't possibly comprehend how people don't notice or won't care about such things. Why on Earth would I choose to endure that on tablet?
