New report says Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 to get a stylus

As we get closer to MWC 2017, at least one device we are starting to feel confident will be making an appearance is a new tablet from Samsung, the Galaxy Tab S3. The invite for Samsung’s press event at MWC 2017 seems to hint at a tablet being revealed. A couple weeks ago specifications leaked for the alleged Galaxy Tab S3. A new report suggests Samsung is going to give the tablet a stylus albeit one that has to be kept up with manually.

A new image of the Galaxy Tab S3 shows a rather large S Pen stylus propped up next to the tablet. Sources indicate that the combination of the size of the stylus and the thin build of the Galaxy Tab S3 mean the S Pen will not be able to be stowed onboard the tablet in a dedicated slot, meaning users will have to keep up with it on their own.

A few other details have emerged from the same source as this news regarding the S Pen coming to the Galaxy Tab S3. First, according to sources Samsung is replacing the white version of the tablet with one that is silver. That will join the standard black version.

The other change will be a reduction in models as it appears Samsung will not produce an 8-inch version of the Galaxy Tab S3, just the 9.7-inch version. Users will still be able to make a few choices other than color though, like whether they want their tablet equipped with an LTE modem in addition to WLAN support.

On the downside, this source also indicates pricing is expected to be close to $600 for the tablet.
