Samsung offers best-in-class mobile entertainment and productivity with the Galaxy Tab S3
Singapore, 21 March 2017 – Samsung Electronics Singapore today announced the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, a stylishly designed tablet coupled with advanced computing technology, created to offer consumers a premium mobile experience. Samsung's latest addition to their tablet family also delivers a superior video and gaming experience along with its versatile usage as a productivity tool.
"The Galaxy Tab S3 offers a variety of new features that are designed to enhance our consumers' everyday lives," said Eugene Goh, Vice President, IT & Mobile, Samsung Electronics Singapore. "This new tablet demonstrates Samsung's continued heritage of delivering the best technology, while providing consumers with an aesthetically functional device to suit their varying needs."
Captivating Entertainment Experience
Equipped with a 9.7-inch QXGA Super AMOLED display, the Galaxy Tab S3 offers users an immersive and elevated viewing experience. The precise colour reproduction range on the tablet produces lifelike images optimised for watching movies. The Galaxy Tab S3 also features a 10-bit HDR video playback so consumers can enjoy a wide range of stunning HDR videos with richer colours and greater contrast.
A first for Samsung's range of tablets, the Galaxy Tab S3 comes equipped with Quad Speakers tuned by AKG by HARMAN for a premium listening experience, allowing users to enjoy multi-channel audio on-the-go. With its auto rotate stereo capabilities, consumers will be able to hear rich sound from the corresponding speakers based on the device's orientation. This comes exceptionally handy with the Galaxy Tab S3's Game Launcher, creating the optimal gaming environment coupled with Vulkan API to offer users a more robust, responsive and personalised gaming experience with no interruptions.
With the Blue Light Filter which helps reduce the amount of blue light emitting from the screen, consumers can now enjoy a good night's sleep. Users simply have to activate the filter from the quick settings menu and they can enjoy their Galaxy Tab S3 right up to bedtime.
Capturing Ideas On The Go
The Galaxy Tab S3 features an Improved S Pen that feels and works like a real pen. Featuring an elastomer 0.7mm pen tip with industry-leading sensitivity that recognises 4,096 levels of pressure and a slide-proof 9mm comfortable and stable grip, the enhanced S Pen grants users a more natural handwriting experience.
Users can quickly and easily bring their ideas to life whenever inspiration strikes, by simply using Screen Off Memo and pinning the memo to Samsung Notes, all without unlocking the screen. Consumers also have the option to pin their memos to the Home Screen and view it whenever they want.
Keeping notes, sketches and drawings organised is now easier than ever with Samsung Notes. With the addition of specialized brushes for Chinese calligraphy, watercolour, and oil drawings – users can mix different colours and quickly switch between brushes and pens to express their artistic talents.
With the Smart Select function, users can use the S Pen to easily create and share GIF animations while the Air Command functions, such as Magnify and Translate, allow users to hover their S Pen over an image or word to zoom in or even translate1 languages. Air Command also allows users to annotate PDF files with the S Pen so they can add notes directly to the document with ease. For added convenience, users can access their favourite apps in an instant just by tapping on a shortcut via the S Pen while the new Glance function allows users to minimise one app in the corner should they need to refer to information from another app.
To further enhance the overall S Pen experience with the Galaxy Tab S3, users can also download2 complementing third party apps such as Autodesk SketchBook Pro, Artrage, and Recolor, enabling consumers to fully utilise the S Pen for all their different drawing and writing needs.
Form Meets Function
For the first time in Samsung's tablet history, the Galaxy Tab S3 sports a Metal and Glass finish – a signature of Samsung Galaxy smartphones. The luxurious look and feel of the beautifully reinforced glass is complemented by scratch-resistant, anodised AL5000 series aluminium for enhanced durability.
The Galaxy Tab S3's performance has also been substantially improved from its predecessor, with a CPU and GPU power increase of 57 percent and 300 percent respectively, while RAM has been enlarged from 3GB to 4GB, allowing smooth multi-tasking.
Thanks to its 6,000mAh battery, consumers can enjoy up 12 hours of videos in one sitting3. To provide even greater flexibility and options, the Galaxy Tab S3 is also the first Samsung tablet to be equipped with Adaptive Fast Charging feature, allowing users to charge their tablets completely in 3 hours4.
Capturing key memories on-the-go with the Galaxy Tab S3 has never been easier. Featuring an enhanced 5-megapixel front camera and a 13-megapixel rear camera, the Galaxy Tab S3 allows consumers to take bright and crisp photos both indoors and outdoors. The advanced auto-focus sensor also enables users to take shots of fast-moving objects so they never let a moment slip by.
Enhanced Usability and Seamless Connectivity
With SideSync 4.05, consumers can control and share their screens between the Galaxy Tab S3 and their Galaxy smartphones, and perform functions such as making calls and sending text messages. The feature also lets them share and transfer their content and files easily, all with a simple drag and drop.
Enhanced Security with Samsung Knox
With Samsung's defence-grade Samsung Knox security platform fitted within the Galaxy Tab S3, users can make use of the Secure Folder feature to create a private, encrypted space on their device. Apps and data moved to the Secure Folder are sandboxed separately on the device and gain an additional layer of security and privacy, granting enhanced protection from malicious attacks. Furthermore, users must use an authentication method such as a PIN, pattern, passcode or biometric verification, such as fingerprint authentication, to access and manage the Secure Folder.
Local Pricing and Availability
The Galaxy Tab S3 will be available in Q2 2017 in Black and Silver with both Wi-Fi® and LTE versions at major Consumer IT & Electronics stores, Telecommunication Operators, Samsung Experience Stores, and Lazada Singapore.
Book Covers – The Galaxy Tab S3's covers provide a new level of usability, allowing consumers to choose from a wide range of matte finish covers that provide a more comfortable grip. These non-slip covers offer consumers peace of mind as they can use their tablets without the fear of dropping them. Available in a variety of pastel colours, these covers are a perfect complement to the consumer's style while providing increased grip and safety.
POGO Keyboard Cover– By simply connecting the POGO keyboard to the Galaxy Tab S3 through the POGO pin, consumers need not worry about the hassle of pairing their device to the keyboard as they simply need to plug and play.
