Samsung has officially announced the arrival of its latest tablet in the Philippines.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 with S Pen was first introduced a couple of months ago. It was a surprise unveiling from the company, and its new design is a departure from the plastic dominated shells from the Tab S2. Now, it comes covered with glass in the back and metal frames on the side.
It is equipped with a fairly powerful Snapdragon 820 CPU together with 4GB of RAM for optimal performance. The camera is quite stellar as well, as it comes with a 13-megapixel sensor at the back. The onboard is on the low side at only 32GB, but thankfully it supports microSD card for further expansion.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S3‘s 9.7-inch screen is similar to Apple’s latest iPad. However, they differ in terms of the quality as this tablet is using a Super AMOLED panel with QXGA resolution. There’s also a total of four AKG speakers that ensures the delivery of high quality audio output.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is not a Note device, it is compatible with the S Pen. According to Samsung, it is more sensitive than the standard one that comes with the Galaxy Note phablets. And for a perspective, it’s almost twice the size of a regular S Pen.
