Samsung Galaxy S8 will not be unveiled at the upcoming MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2017, however, the South Korean giant has started sending out invites for an event scheduled for February 26, 2017. The event starts at 19:00 CET ( 11:30 IST) at Palau de Congressos de Catalunya, Barcelona. Based on the invite, the event will most probably hold the unveiling of the new Galaxy Tab S3 which was rumoured to be unveiled last year at the IFA 2016.
The invite reveals the bottom front of the tablet with a home button which resembles quite a lot to the previously launched Galaxy Tab S2. The home button is expected to come equipped with a faster fingerprint sensor this time around.
Other rumoured specifications include a 9.7-inch display with a resolution of 2048 × 1536 pixels. We are not really sure if it will be an LCD panel or Samsung will yet again go for its trademark Super AMOLED display. Apart from this, the new Tab S3 is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM. Samsung is also expected to give a 32GB or 64GB of internal storage which will be further expandable.
