At Mobile World Congress, Samsung is all about the tablets.

Going into Mobile World Congress 2017, it was apparent that Samsung wasn’t going to announce the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone, instead choosing to delay that launch for later in March.

Instead, the South Korean technology giant used its MWC launch to reveal new entries in its Galaxy Tab line of tablets. On the Android side of the tablet fence, the new 9.7 inch Galaxy Tab S3 incorporates a Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 820 processor and quad speakers for more immersive sound.

Samsung also unveiled two new Windows 10 tablets under the Samsung Galaxy Book branding. Available in 10.6-inch and 12-inch screen sizes, the most obvious comparison point would be with Microsoft’s very popular Surface Pro 4 tablet devices, with a folding keyboard cover and variety of screen angles.

Both new Galaxy Books utilise 7th generation Intel Core processors with either 64GB/128GB for the 10.6 inch model or 128/256GB of storage for the 12 inch model. They’re stylus-equipped with Samsung’s S-Pen, last seen on the ill-fated Note 7 handset, and will be additionally produced with LTE variants.

Samsung Australia has not at the time of writing confirmed which of the new tablets we’ll officially see in Australia, although it has a reasonable track record in releasing most of Samsung’s tablet products for the local market.
