Unknown Samsung-branded tablet passes through the FCC

Earlier today, an unidentified Samsung-branded tablet passed through the United States of America’s official certification authority, the FCC. Unfortunately, the documentation provided in the application form doesn’t reveal anything about the slate. However, based on its dimensions (237.1 x 168.8 mm) and the inclusion of two docking pins on the rear of the device similar to the ones that debuted on the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7, we’d make an educated guess that we’re looking at theĀ Galaxy Tab S3 9.7.

Thankfully, we’re not completely in the dark as the paperwork does divulge that the tablet is set to pack a variety of different connectivity options, including 4G LTE, Bluetooth (Version 4.2, LE+EDR), 802.11b/802.11g/802.11n/802.11ac Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, and GPS. There are also some references that suggest it will have a CPU clock speed of 1.6GHz, but it’s perfectly feasible that they could be referring to something else — so it’s best to take that specification with a rather large pinch of salt.

Just noticed that the FCC link does not work. Also, shouldn’t the model number be known already if it’s truly gone through the FCC?


With the same form factor as the Tab S2 I wonder what possible improvements it may have to justify the upgrade. Surely it has to be something more than just the usual speed bump?
