Galaxy Tab S3 Specs Leak Once Again, But This Time With a Promising SoC
Previously, when the hardware details of the upcoming Galaxy Tab S3 were leaked, the chipset side of the slate was a very disappointing story, but knowing that the market hasn’t been very friendly towards these products, we had no other choice but to respect the information that we were able to unearth from that leak. Now, another specification sheet has popped up and things are looking quite different from the performance side because the Tab S3 has been leaked to feature a far more powerful SoC than Samsung’s own Exynos 7420.
GFXBench Specification Leak Shows a Snapdragon 820 Running on the Galaxy Tab S3 – Samsung Might Only Release a Single Model Down the Road
Examining the GFXBench spec sheet, you will be able to a Snapdragon 820 listed. It is strange that Samsung didn’t include its own Exynos 8890 inside the tablet, but it is possible that we see a different model down the road, so we’ll wait for that. According to the specifications sheet, 4GB of RAM will complement the processor, while there will be 32GB of onboard storage. Just like its predecessors, you should see a MicroSD card opening to allow for further storage expansion and the screen size according to the sheet is 9.6 inches when measured diagonally.
A tablet with a larger screen will be able to accommodate a larger battery capacity and unless we’ll be seeing another hardware leak in the future, our guess is that Samsung is going to limit the Galaxy Tab S3 family to a single screen model, all the while incorporating LTE connectivity in a completely different variant for a slightly higher price tag.
There is no release date provided for the tablet, but we’ll keep tabs on it and inform you on the latest development. Hopefully, the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is going to take place during the MWC 2017 trade show. Are you impressed so far with the specifications? Let us know your thoughts right away.
