Samsung's Tab-S series is traditionally considered to be the most significant competitor for the iPad and iPad Mini. The tablets are characterized by their crisp OLED displays and expandable memory. The data published by the Chinese licensing authority TENAA at the end of April suggest that, from a technical point of view, the new models are just the update that was expected. It seems that the design of the tablets is not going to change very much either.

The Galaxy Tab S3 recently received FCC approval, so releasing the new tablet at MWC 2017 makes complete sense. Documents from the FCC show a model that includes both Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity (SM-T825), and a single rear-facing camera lens near the top of the back. Some of the more recent leaks to emerge on the Tab 3 also indicate that it may include a 9.7-inch display, 4 GB of RAM, a fingerprint sensor in the front, as well as USB Type-C port and Android 7.0 Nougat on board.

What do you think of the Galaxy Tab S3? Do you think it will be a good rival to the Apple iPad?

  • As a consumer who's going to be replacing an older Android JB tablet over the next year or so, I have to say Samsung has a job of work to do on its marketing, that might start with the name of this tablet - of course "Tab" is obvious but why "S3" being completely out of sync with its phones - looking at anything Samsung labeled "S3" I'm thimpking OLD OLD OLD. Give us a break, Samsung, and line up your model numbers with the Android version and specs on offer.
