Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 may be in the works
Zauba.com has been a source of rumors as its publicly available tracking database gives a glimpse of the kinds of items entering India, including any potentially unannounced electronics.
Currently, Samsung model numbers SM-T280, SM-T285, SM-T710, SM-T719, SM-T813, SM-T815, SM-T817, SM-T819, SM-T560NU, and SM-T567V can be found on Zauba and could hint to a possible refresh or update to the existing Galaxy Tab S2, Galaxy Tab E, and Galaxy Tab A series. The SM-T280 in particular was already spotted at GFXBench late last year and could potentially be an updated Galaxy Tab 7.0 E.
Samsung devices are frequently sent to India for either distribution or testing and evaluation purposes. They are almost never returned and are thus destroyed after passing the evaluation process, at least according to the shipping documents. Previous rumors have pointed to a Galaxy Tab S2 refresh with an Exynos 7420 SoC, 4 GB RAM, and a more powerful battery.
The manufacturer has been facing waves of leaks alongside official announcements these past few months. The flagship Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are expected to make appearances at this year's MWC in the coming weeks.
