Samsung Set To Launch A New Tablet Device At WMC 2017

Samsung’s official press invite have made one thing certain that the company is planning to release a new device WMC. Invite image shows a device that resemble more a tablet than a smartphone, which lends credence to rumors that Samsung will unveil a new tablet device at WMC. Samsung Galaxy S8 fans will have to wait a bit longer as latest reports seems to be pointing towards a delayed launch. We can’t blame Samsung for taking its time before launching Galaxy S8, especially after the disastrous Note 7 launch. Samsung announced in Note 7 investigation report that the company will undertake thorough tests for Galaxy S8 to avoid the embarrassment that ensued the Note 7 launch.

Samsung’s decision to withhold the launch of the Galaxy S8 at WMC does mean we won’t be seeing a new device from the company. In a tweet sent from the official Samsung account, gave a hint of what we might expect from the company at WMC event later this month. It looks like, most probably the Galaxy Tab S3 will be unveiled with beefed up specs and design changes. Rumors are pointing to a Galaxy Tab S3 tablet with a 9.6-inch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 12MP rear camera, Android 7.0 Nougat and a $599 price starting price.

Of course, all specs and launch details are very much speculation and unofficial. To know for sure, we will have to wait until the February 26, 2017 to see what Samsung has got in-store for us.
