Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 possibly inching closer with FCC certification

Show of hands, who here remembers when flagship smartphones and high-end 10-inch tablets from certain Android device manufacturers shared the same processors and general specifications?

It’s been forever, or at least that’s how it feels, with exactly zero products over 6 inches or so packing Snapdragon 820 power these days. Meanwhile, above-average gadgets like the Galaxy Tab S2 come in Exynos 5433 and SD652 derivations, compared to the 8890/820 S7 and Note 7.

There’s probably no reason ergo to expect the world from the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, tipped a little while back for a September 1 launch, possibly at IFA Berlin, alongside the Gear S3 and S3 Classic smartwatches.

Galaxy Tab S3 FCC

Still, if the third-gen Super AMOLED slate even marginally upgrades its predecessor’s hardware, it could well stand out from a forgettable, repetitive, outdated Android pack. Unfortunately, the FCC reveals very little today about a device we strongly believe is the looming Galaxy Tab S3 9.7. Just its height and width (237.1 x 168.8 mm), LTE support (optional, most likely), Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, GPS, and NFC.

We don’t want to venture too far into speculation territory, but it’s hard not to wish for iris recognition integration, 4GB RAM, water protection, and maybe even S Pen capabilities.
