Samsung has started sending out invitations to its Galaxy Tab S3 launch event for the Indian market. The tablet was first unveiled in February during the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona and has already available for purchase in quite a good number of markets across Europe and North America.
However, Samsung is now getting ready to unveil this high-end tablet in India on June 20, which is actually tomorrow. The slate comes as the successor to the Galaxy Tab S2 and as expected, it brings a good number of long-awaited upgrades over its predecessor.
The Galaxy Tab S3 has a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display screen with a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels, same as the Galaxy Tab S2. However, there are massive improvements under the hood, with Samsung opting for flagship specs as opposed to the midrange specs used on the Tab S2.
The tablet has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC on board paired with a 4GB RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The back panel has a decent 13MP shooter with an aperture of f/1.9, autofocus, LED flash and 4K video recording. The front, on the other hand, has a 5MP lens with an aperture of f/2.2 and support for 1080p video recording.
In comparison, the Galaxy Tab S2 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC mated with 3 gigs of RAM and the same storage of 32GB. The back camera has an 8MP lens with autofocus and 2K video recording while the front gives you a 2.1MP shooter.
The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 also comes in two variants – LTE and Wi-Fi only. Both variants have the same features, including Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, a 3.5mm audio jack, S-Pen and a detachable keyboard. For authentication, you get a front-mounted fingerprint scanner.
To enhance the audio experience, Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 has four AKG-tuned speakers that deliver stereo audio as well as similar AKG-tuned earphones. In terms of software, the tablet has the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS and to keep it alive you get a massive 6000mAh battery unit that supports fast charging technology. Pricing details for the Indian market are not yet confirmed, but it’s when it comes to the Kenyan market as we don’t really know when this tablet will be launched this side.
Of course, we’ll be here to update you when it does. Stay tuned.
