Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 release date has been confirmed. A recent report from GSM Arena cited Samsung’s Colombian website’s post via TechTastic revealing a September release for the Galaxy Tab S2 successor.
The post specifically mentioned South Korean tech giant’s announcement that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 release date coincides with the Galaxy Note 7’s launch, which is scheduled to officially hit the European shelves beginning September 2.
Several publications such as UberGizmo are also citing the huge possibility that the Galaxy Tab S3 will be unveiled at IFA 2016. It is most likely that the Korean conglomerate would not want to miss the opportunity to show off its newest slate at the upcoming biggest tech event of the year.
And looking at the latest release schedule circulating for the device, the new Samsung tablet might actually enjoy a spotlight during the world’s premier tech trade show. As aforementioned, Samsung Columbia apparently disclosed a September launch for the Tab S3, which, accordingly, is in conjunction with the scheduled Note 7 European launch. Clearly, this also matches the IFA 2016’s schedule, which is set for September 2 to 7. However, it should also be taken into consideration that Samsung’s IFA 2016 press conference is slated for September 1. There might still be debates as to the exact launch date for the Galaxy Tab S3, but one thing’s for sure: it’s set for release next month.
Official information about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 specs are sparse, but the tech company noted that it will have a better processor as well as “an operating system that allows interactivity with elements that require good performance on a mobile device,” the English-translated version of the post read. Speaking of OS, Android Geeks reported the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will most likely have pre-installed Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Upon release, tech fans can expect the Tab S3 to feature qualities similar to its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab S2, but it will also showcase “innovations” that Samsung is yet to take the wraps off.
According to UberGizmo, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 8.0 recently appeared on a TENAA listing, which is essentially the Chinese FCC. The 8-inch tablet is reportedly getting a 2048 x 1536p resolution. Under the hood, it is packed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 502 processor paired with 3 GB RAM. It will have a 32 GB native storage, but there’s an option for memory expansion via microSD.
Reports also shared that the Galaxy Tab S3’s primary camera will have an 8MP lens sensor while the front-facing selfie shooter will feature a 2 MP lens. The 8.0-inch tablet’s battery might have 4,000 mAh capacity.
Android Geeks also reported that a 64 GB variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 could also be produced, same with Galaxy Tab S2. Furthermore, even though the 8-inch variant was the one previously seen at TENAA, the post revealed that a 9.7-inch model of the Tab S3 might also hit the shelves and it might sport a 5,870mAh battery, the same one found in the Galaxy Tab S2.
As for other release news about Korean company’s upcoming devices, the Samsung Gear S3’s unveiling has already been confirmed via a Twitter post by Samsung Mobile itself. The latest generation of Samsung’s wearable device will be officially introduced on August 31 in Berlin, Germany.

The latest grapevines about the Samsung smartwatch are saying that three variants will be available—the Gear S3 Classic, the Gear S3 Frontier, and the Gear S3 Explorer. Describing the device, the post on Forbes read as follows.
“Believed to be codenamed ‘Solis’, the Samsung Gear S3 is expected, like its predecessor, to be a round-faced smartwatch that runs on the company’s own Tizen software.”
