Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 was rumored to be on a September release schedule, but as we all know, this has not happened yet. Still, talk of the tablet hasn’t died off yet and in fact, it seems the device could be here sooner than expected.
Recent speculations have pinned the release date of the rumored Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 to early 2017. While these reports have often been based on rumors, the latest leak is a more solid proof that the tablet could indeed be still in the making.

Little is known about the specs and features of the rumored Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, however, close sources claim that there will be a Super AMOLED QHD screen on the device, which should be 9.7 inches in size. There is also talk of an 8-inch model that keeps the same display quality. Under the hood, Samsung will reportedly ship the Tab S3 with a Snapdragon 652 SoC alongside 32GB of internal storage and room to expand it via a microSD card.
With reports still adamant that Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will be launched in early 2017 alongside the Galaxy S8, we should see the tablet debut with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. In terms of price, the Galaxy Tab S3 is rumored to be coming with a price tag of about $500.
