Galaxy Tab S3 will come with an S Pen

Samsung is due to launch its next-generation flagship Android tablet – the Galaxy Tab S3 – at the Mobile World Congress 2017 later this month. We’ve heard that the company is going to ship an S Pen with the Galaxy Tab S3. The tablet itself won’t have a place for the stylus like we’ve seen on the Note series. Samsung will ship the S Pen as part of a bundle with the tablet.

Additional accessories for the Galaxy Tab S3 include a Keyboard Folio and a Book Cover case. Samsung is going to release both Wi-Fi and LTE models of the tablet. Customers in the United States will be able to purchase one from Verizon and US Cellular. It’s unclear at this point in time whether the LTE Galaxy Tab S3 will be available from T-Mobile and AT&T.

There hasn’t been any indication as yet to suggest that just like last year there’s going to be an 8-inch model of the Galaxy Tab S3. The 9.6-inch Galaxy Tab S3 is expected to feature a 2048×1536 pixel resolution display, Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and Android 7.0 Nougat. Samsung is likely going to release the Galaxy Tab S3 in South Korea first by next month.

Samsung will formally announce the Galaxy Tab S3 on February 26.

i don’t mind no s pen slot, i just hope we get the s-pen that came with the note 7, 4096 levels of pressure and 0.7mm nib, i want to experience that the most. in the future i think they should make an attachment for the s-pen which can detect and use always on notes features like a clip on, will be better business wise and less waste of making 2 different tablets.

I own (2) Note 10.1 2014 Edition tablets which I love. When one is low on battery, the other is ready for use. I’m so attached to an S pen that I can’t imagine having a tablet without it. I’ve been waiting for Samsung to release another Note tablet since mine have updated as far as they can go. Well I gave up the other day and bought the Galaxy Tab A with S Pen. My main reasons for buying this are: updated OS and speed. Before buying, I compared them on gsmarena.com. Obviously the Note is the better of the two since it has a much better screen resolution, multi-window side panel (which I miss on new tab), larger battery, infra-red port & a higher price. Everything else is about the same. Now I see that an S3 is coming out with an S Pen, but without a slot for it. Really! Where are you going to keep it? Even if you buy a cover with a loop, it’s not going to work since the pen is much thinner than a standard stylus. I guess for now I’ll have to be satisfied with my new tablet and one of my Notes. I’m planning on giving the other to my son.

The tab A also has multi-window side panel. I bought one without the S pen (here in UK the one with S pen wasn’t available) and I returned it, it’s a great tablet apart from the screen resolution which in my opinion is awful with that LCD screen and 1200 x 1920 pixels (224 ppi pixel density) resolution. Then I bought a second hand but practically new tab S 8.4 and I’m sold.
The way I see it according to the leaked specs there is not much of a difference between the tab S2 and S3. It will be similar to what Apple did with the ipad mini 3 for which it was so much criticised since there was no obvious upgrade from the mini 2.
To be appealing and worth upgrading from S2 on top of the better processor and 4GB of ram it should also come with better screen resolution like the original S (2560 x 1600 with 359 or slightly higher pixel density), fast charging and “IF” possible also water and dust resistence like some Sony tablets. The Spen should be integrated because if Samsung did it with the mid range Tab A why not with the S series. The camera upgrade is welcomed but I doubt it would be a deal breaker for anyone.
I’d prefer the 16:9 body ratio but it’s just my opinion.

Read the headline and directly wanted to buy this device. But a not integrated pen is a dealbreaker for me.

Not good. Even the midrange Tab A comes with a bay to hold the SPen in.
