Galaxy Tab S3 with S Pen leaks in new photo

We leaked an exclusive on the Galaxy Tab S3 some 4 months ago, providing model numbers for WiFi and LTE models along with a Q1 2017 launch date but little else. Since then, the Tab S3 LTE has received WiFi certification and Bluetooth certification, and the WiFi model just received its Bluetooth certification weeks ago. Just two weeks ago, the tablet’s specs and pricing were revealed, showing a 9.7-inch display, 2048 x 1536p screen resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM, a 5MP front camera, and 12MP back camera. Now, a Galaxy Tab S3 photo has leaked, along with confirming much of what we know and adding some details in a new report.

The new report, supplied by Roland Quandt, says that Samsung will not release an 8-inch model this year — so there’ll be no “Galaxy Tab S3 9.7″ moniker, as has been the case with the Galaxy Tab S2, for example. There is an S Pen aboard, confirming the report we received a week ago, though it can’t be stored in the tablet itself (no Note tablet experience here, folks). Additionally, the Tab S3 will have a new Silver version that will replace the former white model (the tablet will retain its black color option) and come with 32GB of storage. Rounding out the specs is LTE Cat. 6 support, Gigabit WLAN, and Bluetooth 4.2. The pricing for the device comes in at around $600 USD. We’ve seen from Samsung’s MWC 2017 press invite that the Galaxy Tab S3 will feature a front-facing fingerprint sensor as well.

We’re sure that the news of an S Pen with the Tab S3 will appeal to a number of Samsung fans who’ve been wanting a Galaxy Note Tab upgrade. If you want to make it yours, however, you’ll have to wait just a little longer to get your hands on it.

Physical and capacitive keys removed from the S8 line. Keys NOT removed from the tablet with lots of screen estate for onscreen buttons :-( Guess we’ll have to continue to awkwardly press those buttons on the side of the tablet when we hold it in landscape mode and continue to have misclicks when we play games.

I welcome that, I find software buttons ridiculous. If you’re pressing them accidentally while gaming look into Samsung’s gaming tools or interaction control.

No 8″ version? While the ipad mini outsells the ipad pro? When there is no other small tablet from samsung apart a very low budget 7″ model?

Also thus looks just like the Tab S2 with a new processor and more RAM.. hardly an upgrade over the Tab S2 I think. Could this be just an S pen equipped version of the Tab S2 to go against the ipad pro… while we wait for a true Tab S3? Like there has always been an S pen version of the Tab A…

bah, I’ll stick with my Tab S 10.5lte for a few more years then I guess. I don’t consider this much of an advancement.

Bigger bezel than the Tab S2? Doubt it.

Looks about the same to me.

That S-pen would explain why there’s no slot for it. Time to upgrade I think, though I’m not totally convinced, I don’t think there’s going to be many more options in the near future.

I’ll wait until the price is reasonable though. I’m not paying £500 for it.

•Snapdragon 820 (Ok,Thanks!)

•4GB of RAM (Ok,Thanks!)

•Support for S pen (Yes, Thanks!)

•S pen not integrated (Aaah, why?)

•12MP-5MP camera (Aaah, ok?)

•Just a 9.7 inch version no 8 inch  (Nope)

•No 2560×1600 screen resolution just 2048×1536 (Nope)

•No fast charging (Nope)

•$600 which is around £500-520 (NO WAY!!!!)

All in an all not worth it even if the spen comes with it and it’s not charged separately (a big question), what’s wrong with you Samsung?!!!

I love the look of that pen. It’s just that Android on tablets doesn’t feel useful anymore. It’s run it’s course, no matter how many useful features Samsung packs into them.

Damn that’s a nice S-Pen though … If it works with the S8 I may be switching from a die-hard Note user to an S8+ user … Come on Samsung let’s see what you’ve got.
