The All-New Versatile Samsung Galaxy Tab S3


Samsung Malaysia Electronics today announces the availability of Galaxy Tab S3, a stylishly designed tablet with advanced computing technology offering a premium mobile experience. Equipped with an S Pen designed to feel and write like your favourite ball pen, the Galaxy Tab S3 delivers versatile usage as a productivity tool, without needing to recharge.


“In today’s modern world, consumers look for tablets that are able to do a lot more with the convenience of a mobile device. They would expect their tablets to adapt and evolve according to their lifestyle trends. The Galaxy Tab S3 is carefully crafted with versatile features and functionality that provide a dynamic user experience. This tablet represents Samsung’s commitment to expand tablet portfolio with premium technology and delivering the best of entertainment and productivity for users at home, work or on the go,” said Hosea Heen, Head of Mobile Business, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.


Building upon a signature design, the Galaxy Tab S3’s minimal and refined design was achieved by affixing glossy, reinforced glass panels to an aluminum frame, resulting in a seamless aesthetic. The Galaxy Tab S3 provides premium Galaxy technology including:


  • Refined S Pen: With an enhanced S Pen, the Galaxy Tab S3 allows users to be more productive, creative, and do multiple things at once. For a natural writing experience, the S Pen has a smaller 0.7mm tip and increased pressure sensitivity. The S Pen also includes convenient features such as Screen Off Memo to quickly jot down notes, PDF Annotation for easy editing and professional-level drawing with Advanced Drawing Tools.
  • Powerful Quad Stereo Sound Speakers Tuned by AKG: The Galaxy Tab S3 is the first Samsung tablet to boast such a design, which places powerful quad-stereo speakers crafted by AKG by Harman in each corner of the device. The speakers’ ‘Auto Rotate Stereo’ function allows the tablet to redirect sound based on its orientation, creating a more accurate and consistent listening experience
  • Brighter and Better Display: Boasting a superb 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display with HDR (High Dynamic Range) video content support, the Galaxy Tab S3 displays stunningly vivid images with true-to-life colours.


Unveiled at Mobile World Congress this year, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 delivers on Samsung’s legacy of innovative Galaxy technology including a 13-megapixel rear camera with auto focus and a 5-megapixel front camera for high-quality photos. The tablet also includes expandable storage[1] and more power efficiency with fast-charge capabilities, supporting up to 12 hours of video playback on the Galaxy Tab S3. With fast charging technology and longer battery life, the Galaxy Tab S3 is designed to keep users always connected.


The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 takes mobile entertainment to the next level providing a cinema-like experience with 4K video playback and a stunning Super AMOLED display. Highly optimised for gaming, the Galaxy Tab S3 also comes equipped with Vulkan API for superior graphics and the new Game Launcher for an enhanced user interface and personalised gaming experience, as well as modes like ‘Do Not Disturb’ for uninterrupted gameplay.


For a safe and secure login, Samsung Flow uses biometric authentication to log-in and can wirelessly tether compatible devices to transfer documents from a mobile device to a tablet. It also syncs message notifications so users will never miss an important text message, whether they are using a smartphone or their tablet – making working on the go seamless.
