This year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will break away from tradition. Samsung won't launch the Galaxy S lineup at the conference, as is the custom for the Korean manufacturer. Rather, the company will launch the Galaxy Tab S3 at the MWC and proceed to launch the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus next month. The failure of the Galaxy Note 7 has left the company quite red faced and its eager to avoid future disasters along similar lines.
However, the Tab S3 won't be the only Samsung device this month, if today's leak is taken without salt. A Samsung app in Microsoft's Windows store suggests that the Korean tech giant will also introduce an all new gadget. This will be termed as the Samsung Book and target Microsoft's Surface Book lineup and Apple's lighter MacBook Air. Take a look at the app panel below.
