Recent rumors surfacing on the web suggest the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will be powered by Exynos 8890 Octa, a chipset that blows the engine powering Google Pixel C out of the water.
Leaks talk about Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 sporting a chipset that is much more capable than NVidia Tegra X1, powering the Pixel C. For comparison, Pixel C sporting Tegra X1 can score up to 65,500 points in AnTuTu, while the Exynos 8890 Octa can go up to 128,000 points (on the Galaxy S7 Edge). The huge score gap is because Tegra X1 has only four Cortex A57 cores running at 1.9 GHz, along with superb Nvidia Maxwell-based GPU. Exynos 8890 is made out of x2.3 GHz Mongoose & 4×1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 cores, along with excellent Mali-T880 MP12 GPU.
The upcoming tablet is spotted at Zauba, revealing that the Galaxy Tab S3 will soon be shipped to India for evaluation. The multiple units, sporting the codename SM-825, will be shipped; the units are LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab S3. The price, according to speculations, should be between $500-$550. Aside from using an OLED panel and being powered with Exynos 8890, there is no further info regarding the hardware of the upcoming tablet.

The high-end tablet should get released alongside Galaxy S8, during MWC in Barcelona, February 27- March 2, 2017. There were rumors about Samsung Unveiling the Galaxy Note 8 during the first part of 2017, but that is unlikely to happen, although Evan Blass, aka @evleaks hinted about Samsung working on the Galaxy Note 8.
Samsung Galaxy S8 models are indeed skipping SM-G94* model numbers, will ship as SM-G950 & SM-G955. Know what else is in the works? SM-N950.
