Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 WiFi Variant Gets FCC Approval, Launch Imminent

With barely a few days left till Samsung’s Mobile World Conference 2017 (MWC 17) press conference, it appears that the South Korean tech giant has got FCC approval for the WiFi variant of its much-awaited Galaxy Tab S3.

The model number of the FCC approved device is SM-T820 which, as you know, has often been speculated as the Galaxy Tab S3 (with the SM-T825 being the 4G LTE variant). Now that the next-generation tablet has received the requisite go-ahead from the regulators, the next obvious move will be to officially introduce the device in the market, followed by its commercial availability.

Word on the street is that the tablet will be sporting a curved display much akin to that the Galaxy S7 Edge. Apart from that, Samsung is also likely to include the S Pen.

We are not yet sure how much the device is going to cost buyers once it hits the store shelves, although odds are high it will be priced roughly the same as the Galaxy Tab S2 when it launched about a couple of years back.

Samsung is prepping to host a press conference at MWC 17 in Barcelona, Spain later in February. The company has already clarified that the Galaxy S8 is not in its roadmap for the coming iteration of the event. The invite for the press conference also displays a tablet which many have deciphered as a clear sign indicating the imminent arrival of the Galaxy Tab S3.

Worth noting, this is going to be Samsung’s first tablet announcement in over a year, which is hardly surprising given the gradual slowdown of the worldwide tablet market.
