Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 said to ship with an S Pen


We saw the full specs leak for Samsung’s forthcoming Galaxy Tab S3 tablet earlier this week, but there was one detail that the source of that information seems to have missed. According to the often-reliable-when-it-comes-to-Samsung SamMobile, the Galaxy Tab S3 is going to ship with one of Samsung’s S Pen styluses…

While previous Samsung devices that shipped with S Pens — notably the Note line — offered a convenient slot in the body of the device for storing the stylus, it seems that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will simply ship with one in the box. Other accessories, according to SamMobile, include a “Keyboard Folio” and a “Book Cover case”.

The new tablet is said to ship with a 9.6-inch 2048×1536 resolution display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset, and an upgraded 4GB of RAM. Samsung is said to be shipping the tablet with a version of Android Nougat (which will mean lots of new tablet-friendly features), will pack a 12MP camera on the inside, and in terms of physical size the tablet will reportedly be just 5.6mm thick. It will also apparently be available in both Wi-Fi-only and LTE models.

Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Tab S3 at its event at Mobile World Congress later this month in Barcelona, Spain. The Korean company is also expected to tease its forthcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone, which is said to be getting its official announcement at a standalone event in just a couple of months.
