Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is excellent due to its features. Samsung is reportedly planning unveil its latest iPad rival, the Galaxy Tab S3, at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona later this month.

The company has sent out invitations to a press conference on February 26 – the day before the show officially kicks off.

Samsung has already said it won’t be launching its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, at the event, so attention has turned to its tablet lineup.

The Galaxy Tab is overdue an upgrade, after the Tab S2, which launched in late 2015, received only a minor refresh last year.Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

Rumours suggest the Tab S3 will feature a 9.6-inch 2,048×1,536 touchscreen – the same as the 9.7-inch iPad Pro – and will be marginally thinner at 5.6mm (compared to 6.1mm)

It will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and will come in two versions – one WiFi-only and the other adding 4G connectivity.

It will have a 12-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel selfie camera, and will run Android 7.0 Nougat.

The Tab S3 is expected to launch in Korea in March with a price of around 700,000 won – which translates into roughly $600 or £480.Samsung Galaxy Tab S3
