First Galaxy Tab S3 firmware now online, grab the wallpapers here


Last updated: February 18th, 2017 at 16:49 UTC+01:00

Samsung is getting prepared to launch the Galaxy Tab S3, from specification leaks to S Pen-toting confirmation, device pricing, a press conference tease, and even the device manual showing Note-like ambition. Now, in honor of Samsung’s upcoming February 26th announcement, the first Galaxy Tab S3 firmware has appeared online. The Tab S3 will be, along with the Galaxy S8, the first device from Samsung to feature Nougat out of the box. The firmware available is for the WiFi-only model of the Tab S3, not the LTE model.

For a refresher, the Galaxy Tab S3 (SM-T820, SM-T825 for LTE) is said to feature a 9.7-inch, Super AMOLED display (no 8-inch tablet this year) with a 2048 x 1536p screen resolution, 2.1Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor (the same one found in the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge), 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 5MP front/12MP rear camera combo, along with a home button with an embedded fingerprint sensor, LTE Category 6, Gigabit WLAN, and Bluetooth 4.2. As for colors, a new black model will replace the former white model.

In honor of the upcoming tablet to the “Galaxy,” we offer the Galaxy Tab S3 wallpapers that you can download here for your enjoyment. You can go here to download the first Tab S3 firmware.

All eyes are on Samsung now, as the day of the Tab S3’s unveiling quickly approaches.
