Samsung launches two new tablets Tab S3 and Book at MWC 2017

Posted March 02, 2017

The Galaxy Tab S3 is the first Samsung tablet to feature quad-stereo speakers tuned by AKG by HARMAN. It makes us appreciate the upcoming phone's dazzling design. And now that we are closing in on the release date of the Galaxy S8, the web has gone wild over an image of the upcoming smartphone, shared by none other than reputed leak-master Evan Blass via Twitter.

There's no sign of Bixby, the company's long-rumored digital assistant created by Siri-makers Viv Labs, but there is a mysterious third hardware button on one side of the device that BGR says will be used to activate the assistant. When the phone does launch, it will compete with handsets unveiled at the conference, like the slim, narrow-bezeled LG G6 and the BlackBerry KeyOne, which has a physical keyboard. The company is introducing a deeper "8-point battery safety check" for future devices, which may have contributed to the revised launch period for the Samsung Galaxy S8.

The new S8 lineup features a design much like last year's Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, highlighted by a curved AMOLED display and glass that slopes down on either side of the phone.

There are even more hints as to what might come. Further, it has been said that Bixby will support third party service integration and control native apps as well. The render shows a attractive phone that aligns well with descriptions we've read in various reports over the past couple of months, but it's still just a render.

House Speaker Paul Ryan is promising a new health care system that would replace "Obamacare", reduce costs for consumers and give patients more choices.

"On March 29, Samsung Electronics will unveil the newest Galaxy as part of its endeavor to unbox your phone". The home button appears to have been removed entirely too.

Of course, none of this is a done deal, and we still have a full month for more rumors, image leaks and renders to surface. However, we may have to wait, as we told earlier, until March 29 for official announcements.

Samsung did not respond to a request for comment.
