The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 leaks have been plentiful the last two weeks, and during the weekend it’s been possible to study another round of leaks to try and figure out what more specs the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will have.
And it really does look like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will have faster UFS storage as well as 4GB of RAM, possibly LPDDR4 RAM.
The most recent benchmark tests of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 SM-T825 4G LTE version, benchmarked it with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, a processor that supports UFS 2.0 storage. And what’s more, upon inspection, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 SM-T825 performs nearly 99.9% identical to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 editions of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones, both of which has UFS 2.0 storage and 4GB of DDR4 RAM, as well as a retina AMOLED display.
In particular, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 read/write speeds are now about twice as fast as before, and it even has a memory bandwidth of up to 18GB/sec, twice of what it was before.
Another thing that the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones have, are 4K cameras on the back, and with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 having been benchmarked with a slightly higher resolution camera than the smartphones, at 12.9MP, 4K video on the Tab S3 looks very, very likely now too.
Above I’ve compared the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 (on the left) with the Samsung Galaxy S7 (on the right) so you can see how similar they perform, both tested with Android 7.0 Nougat.
