Leaked Galaxy Tab S3 images hint at metal and glass build

Home / News / Leaked Galaxy Tab S3 images hint at metal and glass build

Samsung’s next-generation flagship Android tablet might offer the same premium look and feel that we’ve grown accustomed to with its smartphones. Live images of the Galaxy Tab S3 have been leaked via Taiwan’s National Communication Propagation Committee where the tablet was submitted for regulatory approval prior to its release. The NCC has now certified the Galaxy Tab S3 (SM-T820) for release in Taiwan, assigning it the certification number CCAH17LP0380T2. Samsung may release the Wi-Fi-only model of the Galaxy Tab S3 in the country.

The images from the NCC give us a good look at the Galaxy Tab S3. It appears that the tablet touts a proper metal and glass build like we’ve seen on Samsung smartphones. It also means that this tablet will pick up scratches very easily and if you have slippery hands, you’d want to hold on to it very tightly because it will not be too hard to crack that beautiful glass.

Samsung is due to formally announce the Galaxy Tab S3 at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona later this month. The tablet is expected to feature a 9.7-inch 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution display with a Snapdragon 820 processor under the hood coupled with 4GB of RAM, up to 64GB of storage, a 12-megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel front camera.

so disappointed that it’s same size and same 3:2 screen as the Tab S2

Doesn’t any one notice that the dimensions (170mm x 230mm) are about those of an 8.0″ tab

No. This dimensions are closer to the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7

GTS2 9.7= 237mm x 169mm
GTS2 8.0= 199mm x 135mm

The dimensions of the leak Galaxy Tab S3 are:

GTS3= 238mm × 169mm

You can make a pretty decent measurement of the screen, and doing the maths. the screen size ends up being exactly 10 inches to 2dp. from your measurements that makes the whole tablet 11 and 1/4 inches

I love the design. It looks so modern. I guess the Galaxy Tab S3 will be even lighter than the Galaxy Tab S2 to be handle well.

Who cares, as long as it looks pretty! I’ll just keep buying new ones, this stuff is so dirt cheap!!!

Thanks! Unfortunately we’ll never know whether people truly like glass backs that are slippery and fragile or if they simply missed the sarcasm 🙂

True. but I can say that I really dislike glass backs. I have seen and tried it at or with several devices (the last one was A5 2016) and found it not really premium and far too slippery. And I see it as irony that back in 2015 one of the differences between Tab A and the Tab S2 had been the rubber back of the S2, that make the Tab S2 to be hold more safely. What I really dislike is the absence of the cover clips. These are missing so a cover must be attached by a frame.… Read more »

Ohh yes, very good point about the cover clips 🙁

Probably yet another case of form over function.
