The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will finally be released in the first quarter of next year after it failed to make an appearance during one of the company?s annual event last September.
Rumors have been circulating that the launching was moved to give the South Korean tech giant enough time to make its device impressive, an important move after the downfall of its flagship Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

Reports claim that the tablet will be released in two variants, the SM-T820 and SM-T825, and will be launched during the Mobile World Congress 2017.
Techradar reported that the device will look pretty much like its predecessor. It will also have a 4:3 display aspect ratio, and its back may be made of plastic. This was met by disappointed comments after customers expected it to be a significantly different device.
The device is also said to feature an 8-inch screen for the smaller variant and a 9.7-inch screen for the larger model. The larger one will have a better resolution at 2048 x 1536 pixels.
Speculations suggest that the device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. And because it is made by Samsung, it may come with a microSD card for expandable memory.
It is unsure if the highly anticipated device will run an Android 7.0 Nougat or an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system. This is because the device might already have its Federal Communications Commission certification for trade back in March 2016.
Reports also indicate that the device will come with a 4,000mAH and a 5,870mAH battery for the smaller and larger variants, respectively.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will likely have an 8MP rear and 2MP camera. Samsung is known to use AMOLED technology in all of its mid-level and flagship devices released, that is why there?s almost 100% chance that this one will, too.
However, these features are not yet confirmed by Samsung, nor did it indicate any price range when the device arrives, though tech experts estimate that it will be priced slightly higher than the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 when it first arrived.
