Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

Samsung has launched Galaxy Tab S3 and Galaxy Book with S Pen at MWC 2017. The Galaxy Tab S3 features an enhanced display, speakers coupled with the S Pen stylus. As the name suggests, the Galaxy Book is identical to that of the Microsoft Surface Pro.

On the specifications front, the Galaxy Tab S3 features a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED (2048 x 1536) HDR display, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB RAM paired with 32GB expandable internal storage. While the rear camera is equipped with a 13MP sensor, the front-facing shooter offers a 5MP sensor. The tablet is loaded with Android Nougat and will be able to display vivid colors including an improved depth to the picture.

With four AKG powered speakers, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will be integrated with a new variant of the S Pen. The new stylus is marginally thicker than the Pen included with the Galaxy Note smartphones. The newly launched S Pen features a 0.7mm tip, 4096 levels of pressure in addition to a tilt functionality. According to Samsung, the four speakers are located on the corner of the tablet, which helps the device to deliver surround sound.

Even though the Galaxy Tab S3 provides support for a detachable keyboard, it will be an optional accessory. Hence, you need not have to expect the keyboard to bundle with the package. Moreover, the keyboard attaches to the tablet via pogo pins at the bottom. Hence, there is no need to pair or charge the keyboard separately.
