Where's Samsung Galaxy Tab S3? The widely-anticipated device from the house of Samsung eluded public eye at the IFA 2016 and the company does not seem in any hurry whatsoever to unveil the device. The five-day event is over and the supposed competitor to Apple iPad Air and iPad Mini line-up is nowhere to be seen.

Samsung confirmed via its Colombian website that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 would launch in Berlin, Germany, on Sept. 2 at an annual IFA event, reported GSM Arena. The company's Tab S series has some of the most-affordable, high performance tablets users can get their hands on.

The Korean tech giant even confirmed Samsung Galaxy Tab S3's release would coincide with the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at the IFA 2016. The post on the official website was later taken down so that Samsung could make the announcement.

Despite earlier reports, the tech giant did not mention the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 and the press conference focused on home technology and Samsung Gear S3. The Gear S3 has been made available in two variants, the Classic and the Frontier. The recently revealed watches join their predecessor Gear S2.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is also expected in 8.0-inch and 9.7-inch versions with a 3GB RAM, 8MP and 2MP rear and front cameras and a high-performance processor. Some reports suggested that Samsung would reduce its weight and size and also include an Adreno 510 GPU for an impressive graphics performance.

According to Mobile & Apps, experts claimed that Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 would sport a Super AMOLED display, resolution of 2048p, a Snapdragon 652 processor, 4,000 mAh battery and a 32GB internal storage, expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. The device is also expected to come with apps such as a newly improved Doze, Now on Tap, Google Browser and Android Play.
