Australian T3 - - HYPE -

What do we have here, T3? Why, it’s Sam­sung’s up­date to the age­ing Tab S2. The Galaxy Tab S3 fea­tures sig­nif­i­cantly up­dated specs, a HDR screen and all-new pro ac­ces­sories. It’s Sam­sung’s ri­val to the iPad Pro and we think it’s got legs. Can I draw on it, like it’s some kind of ex­pen­sive notepad? Yep. The Tab S3 comes with an up­dated, ball­point-style S Pen. It mea­sures 9.4mm in di­am­e­ter and fea­tures a nar­row, 0.7mm tip for ac­cu­rate, more nat­u­ral writ­ing and sketch­ing. The S Pen doesn’t need to be charged to work. ei­ther. If bash­ing on keys is more your thing, the Tab S3 has an op­tional Pogo key­board. Is this a good op­tion for com­mut­ing? The Tab S3 is ideal for work­ing on the fly. It has a fea­ture called Sam­sung Flow that helps you wire­lessly ‘tether’ com­pat­i­ble de­vices, so you can trans­fer doc­u­ments from your smart­phone to the tablet. It also syncs mes­sage no­ti­fi­ca­tions so you can stay on top of mes­sages when work­ing. And what about play-time? The Tab S3 is a well-rounded media tablet, too, thanks to its 9.7-inch HDR screen and four stereo speak­ers, tuned by AKG to pro­duce dis­tor­tion-free au­dio. In­side the tablet is a Snap­dragon 820 pro­ces­sor, promis­ing 3x faster graph­ics per­for­mance over the pre­vi­ous model, so movies and gam­ing are a no-brainer. Sweet! When can I buy it? Sam­sung’s Galaxy Tab S3 is out this win­ter.
