Update (6/7/16): Evan Blass cleared the air on Monday and said that the “mystery” was solved. The leaked image is showing the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1, not the Galaxy Tab S3.

Original Story (6/5/16):

Waiting for another tablet from Samsung because the Galaxy Tab S2 wasn’t that attractive? It won’t be long before the company launches the Galaxy Tab S3. On Sunday, Evan Blass shared an image from an “anonymous tip” of the unannounced tablet. The image shows what is said to be the Galaxy Tab S3 from the front and back.

Look familiar?

Anyone who has ever seen the Galaxy Tab S2 would believe that’s what they’re staring at in the image above. If real, Samsung is going to playing it safe with the Galaxy Tab S3.

In September 2015, the Galaxy Tab S2 was released in 8- and 9.7-inch varieties. Samsung packed a stunning Super AMOLED display in an ultra-thin body, giving consumers a high-end tablet experience people have been waiting for from Samsung. The Galaxy Tab S2 finally felt like a complete tablet from a company that previously released a new device every other month.

While the exteriors could end up being very similar, Samsung will definitely refresh the internal specifications for the Galaxy Tab S3 in its different sizes. What we know for sure based on Blass’ leak is the signature wallpaper from the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will be present on the Galaxy Tab S3.
