Samsung may launch the third version of its Galaxy Tab S3 on 1 September, according to Russian journalist Eldar Murtazin who tweeted the date along with the model name. The Tab S3 has been speculated to be launched in the Q3 of 2016 but this is the first time an exact date has surfaced.

The Galaxy Tab S3 is slated to succeed the Tab S2 which was also launched at a similar time last year. This will most likely be Samsung's flagship tablet for this year, as the company only released an updated version of the high-end Galaxy Tab S2 featuring a new processor with everything else remaining the same.

Although not many details are known about the tablet, in January an Indian import-export tracker website, Zauba, had listed two variants of the speculated tablet. Test models are often sent to various countries by phone and tablet manufacturers as was the case here where two variants of 8in and 9.7in were spotted.

As for the specs, tipsters have speculated the device may be powered by an Exynos 7420 processor, 4GB RAM and an improved battery life in comparison to its predecessor. The device may be the company's first tablet to come pre-installed with the Android Nougat OS in case Google releases it by then.

Last month, famed tipster Evan Blass had given us a peek into how the upcoming tablet would look through a tweet. In the leaked image, a premium back was noticed along with a front camera flash which many tipsters indicate could also be a dual-camera module.
