There’s a tight race in the 2-in-1 category and Samsung just upped the ante with the release of its Galaxy Tab S3. The sleek new tablet features an updated S Pen, Samsung Flow software to boost productivity and runs Android 7.0. Here are five more notable things about the Galaxy Tab S3 that you should know…
It’s camera-ready. I must admit that I roll my eyes every time I see someone taking pictures with a tablet. I mean, what’s the point? Most tablets aren’t equipped to produce good quality photos but the Tab S3 is different. It includes a 13-megapixel rear camera with auto focus and a 5-megapixel front camera for shutterbugs who want to take photos with their tablet.
It’s made for playin’ around – literally. Tab S3 is optimized for gaming with Vulkan API for superior graphics, Game Launcher to personalize the user interface and a ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode for uninterrupted gameplay. The Galaxy Game Launcher has been optimized for Galaxy Tab S3’s screen, offering three modes which include Power Saver, Mute Games and Ongoing Calls.
It’s nice to look at. Tab S3 comes with a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display. It offers a cinema-like experience with 4K video playback and HDR video playback for videos streamed using the Amazon app. For a real life viewing experience that pulls you into whatever you’re watching, look no further.
It sounds so sweet. Tab S3 is the first Samsung tablet to feature a quad-stereo system. It has four speakers – one in each corner – so you won’t miss a beat whether you hold it vertically or horizontally. Samsung even teamed up with engineers from AKG by HARMAN to ensure clear, crisp, high-quality sound.
It’s a canvas. With improvements to the S Pen like a smaller 0.7mm tip and increased pressure sensitivity, Tab S3 is an ideal tool for professional level drawing. The S Pen also includes convenient features such as Screen Off Memo to quickly jot down notes and PDF Annotation for easy editing.
The Samsung Tab S3 will be available in the UAE in mid April at 2499 AED.
