The excellent Tab S2 might be getting an upgrade soon. With all the eyes towards the Note 7 that will be shown on august 2nd,not many people are looking towards September’s IFA where the Korean giant is planning to release the next version of its best tablet and smartwatch.
Yes, even the Gear S3 is scheduled to hit us in September according to trade sources. The tablet will, of course, come in 2 sizes. Tab S3 8.0-inch version and Tab S3 9.7-inch version.
The tablets will be premium like the iPad pro and have powerful specs. The little one will have a super AMOLED 8.0-inch screen with 2,048 x 1,536 pixels’ screen resolution powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset with four Cortex-A72 CPU and will have four Cortex-A53 CPU cores.
There will be 3 GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The body should be all metal so that it feels luxurious in hand. The bigger variant will have similar specs but will have a higher resolution screen to accommodate the extra screen size.
One of the speculation is that the tablet will come with the upcoming Android Nougat but that looks unlikely given the Android release schedule. It all its entirety, the tablets might come out with the marshmallow and will be updated to Android nougat within a couple of months of its release.
The design will not stray too far compared to the Tab S2. They will be identical with minor changes and the price tag is also said to be similar.
