User manual for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 appears revealing support for optional S Pen accessory
Even though the Samsung Galaxy S8 will show up at MWC next week, it will be in the form of a 60-second video. But that doesn't mean that Samsung is coming to Barcelona empty handed. The company is expected to unveil the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 tablet at MWC. A user manual for the slab has leaked, revealing that the device will come with a USB-Type C port, a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button, and more. While some diagrams show the tablet with an S Pen, the accessory is not included out of the box with the device, and there is no storage space for it on the slate. If you just instinctively grabbed for your wallet, you've got the idea.

Memos can be written on the screen even if the power is turned off, a nifty feature. The tablet does support Air Command and other S Pen related features, including the ability to translate individual words by hovering over them using the S Pen. According to the user manual, there will be two variants of the Galaxy Tab S3. One includes LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity, while the other offers only Wi-Fi. Android 7.0 is pre-installed.

Based on earlier leaks, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 should feature a 9.6-inch AMOLED display, with a 1536 x 2048 resolution and a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 820 chipset carrying a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB/128GB of native storage.

Anyone know how good the 18inch tablet is doing? I haven't heard much about it at all after it was launched. Can't find anything on it

iPad Pro has the A9 chip for more future proof performance! Tab S3 for those that want to save some money and want an SD card slot!

And an S-Pen that you no need extra cost.

This new gallery plugin is awful, phonearena :p That being said, when it distorted the images it made the tab look like a 16:10 ratio screen I was hoping for :(

The manual itself says the S Pen comes in the box, but whatever...
