Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Release Date, News & Update: Will It Have Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 3GB RAM? More Specs & Features Revealed
If latest rumors are to be believed, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 may undergo a last minute change to include the Android 6.0 Marshmallow for a more updated experience. Even if that's not the case, the powerful Android 7.0 Nougat is good enough for the upcoming highly-anticipated device.
Samsung recently confirmed via its Columbian website that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will launch in Berlin, Germany, on Sept. 2 at an annual IFA event. The company's Tab S series has some of the most-affordable, high performance tablets users can buy. It is also a tough competitor to the Apple iPad Air and iPad Mini line-up.
Latest reports also suggest that the original Samsung Galaxy Tab S (8.4 and 10.5) is receiving the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS update. This also suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will be out soon. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2's price cut last week is all the more reason to believe that the new tab will be here any moment now.
According to HNGN, the 8.0-inch and 9.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 versions will be made available at the event and rumors suggest the tab will be more advanced than its predecessor and come equipped with a more efficient processor and 8MP rear and 2MP front cameras. Also the 3GB expected RAM will boost the device's performance like never before.
There have been hints that Samsung will reduce the size and weight of Galaxy Tab S3 and include an Adreno 510 GPU for better graphics performance. It may have done away with the 16GB variant. If this is true, then the 32GB one will be the base model. The microSD storage capacity could be expanded to 128GB.
As per The Bitbag, both the 8.0-inch and 9.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 versions will have a screen resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixels and will boast Super AMOLED display technology. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core SoC is expected to power the tablet with four Cortex-A53 CPU and our Cortex-A72 CPU cores.
