Barcelona – Samsung has lifted the curtain on its much-anticipated Tab S3 at Mobile World Congress, adding to the Galaxy tablet range.
The new tablet features a 9.7-inch display with HDR, delivering more detail than ever before. There’s also been an upgrade to the camera since the Tab S2, with the flagship now boasting a 13MP sensor with autofocus technology.
Some of the other big features included a new blue light filer – which is designed to take the strain off your eyes when looking at your screen in the evening – and four finely tuned speakers by AKG.
The tablet will also come bundled with a new and improved S Pen, modelled after the iconic Noris pencil by Staedtler.
Samsung also gave us a peek at a 2-in-1, tablet-cum-laptop hybrid, called the Galaxy Book. The Windows-powered device has a Full HD+ display measuring 12-inches from corner to corner. And, at just 7.4mm it’s the thinnest tablet in its class.
It also features an impressive 8GB RAM and 256GB internal memory.
During the announcement, Samsung lightly touched on how much the company is keen to drive home it's passion for connecting all our devices through the internet of things.
5G - the next generation of super-fast mobile connectivity - is "the next revolution", according to Samsung’s COO. It'll only be a matter of time before the UK is set up for 5G, and when it is, Samsung's devices will be ready
