Although the Galaxy S8 won\'t be available for purchase until mid-April, we have news regarding the Tab S3 which Samsung is going to launch in a week or so, at the MWC 2017 in Barcelona. There are also a few recent snippets on other subjects which you might like.
Metal-glass build for the Galaxy Tab S3
In a live image of the upcoming Galaxy Tab S3, leaked by the Taiwan National Communication Propagation Committee (NCC), a metal and glass build for the tablet was revealed. Samsung had submitted the tablet to them as a part of the regulatory pre-release approval in the country. The Tab S3 now has the certification number CCAH17LP0380T2 in Taiwan and should be available for purchase from early next month.
Gear VR with a Controller
Check out this Gear VR headset which is rumoured to come out with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ next month. According to this leak by Roland Quandt, the new VR headset will have the model number SM-R324 and \"a single hand controller.\" We will have to wait and see if Samsung incorporates the controller with the VR headset in the same way Google did it with their wireless controller and the DayDream VR.
We knew that Samsung is probably going to shift to Exynos series 9 from 2017 for its flagship SoC range, but thanks to an Indian intern\'s LinkedIn profile, we may also have the model number; Exynos 9810. The rumoured 9810M is supposed to have a more powerful Mali G-71 GPU with 20 cores, while the 9810V could have the slightly less powerful version of the same GPU, with 18 cores.
That\'s it for now, but stay tuned as we will bring you more as soon as there\'s more to bring to you.
