We haven’t heard much about Samsung’s 2017 flagship tablet, but now there are some new rumors circulating that claim to give us an idea of what we can expect. The last time we saw rumors about the device was back in October of last year when it was said this new tablet would be released sometime during the first quarter of 2017. This information came to us from a trusted source of SamMobile, who has a history of being right when it comes to Samsung leaks.

They were also able to confirm that the device would come with the model numbers SM-T820 and SM-T825, with the T820 being the WiFi version and the T825 being the LTE variant. It seems this detail was right on the money as we see there’s an FCC database entry for the T825 model already. So this new information comes to us from a Korean publication called Naver, and their leak goes even further with details about the hardware, price point and release window.

If true, Samsung will be releasing the Galaxy Tab S3 with a 9.6″ display that has a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. This would mean the Galaxy Tab S3 will have the same 4:3 aspect ratio that we saw in the Galaxy Tab S2, and continuing to move away from the widescreen style of the original Galaxy Tab S. The leak suggests the upcoming Galaxy Tab S3 will have 4GB of RAM and will be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC to power the whole thing.

The tablet is said to be 5.6mm thick, have a 12MP camera on the back, a 5MP camera on the front, and Android 7.0 Nougat installed out of the box. Pricing for this new tablet should be around 700,000 won (which is about $600) and it is being reported that the Galaxy Tab S3 will be launching sometime in March. With Samsung advertising a new product launch at MWC 2017, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Galaxy Tab S3 made an appearance in Barcelona.
