Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S3 turns up in new leak, launch imminent

We’re expecting Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S3 to turn up within the next few weeks, so this latest leak is no surprise.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 has seemingly passed through the FCC, which is the main US certification board for telecommunications devices, as revealed by tech blog Product-Reviews. Every smartphone or tablet that is sold in the US goes through the FCC, so it was only a matter of time that the Tab S3 would appear. What’s more, devices aren’t usually certified until they’re close to launch, so this appears to be ample evidence that a Tab S3 release is imminent.

But the leak train doesn’t stop there; the FCC also supposedly outed a number of details about the upcoming Samsung tablet, seemingly confirming features like 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, NFC, and support for a wide range of Wi-Fi bands. Unfortunately, the FCC page seems to be down right now, so we can’t confirm this particularly listing.

The other bad news is that the FCC doesn’t give two hoots about processors and RAM, so the real juicy details have been left out of today’s leak. Nevertheless, we’re expecting the Galaxy Tab S3 to land at Berlin’s IFA 2016 technology tradeshow, at some point between August 31 and September 2, so we haven’t got long to wait.

It’s also likely that we’ll see the launch of the Samsung Gear S3 at IFA 2016, and probably a healthy selection of new home appliances too.
