Barely a week from its official launching at the annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is surely one of those devices that everyone has to watch out for. Well, at least on the latest leak that surfaced now, indicating that the upcoming tablet is the one to beat in the competition.

Phone Arena has reported that Samsung Galaxy Tab S3's official manual has now been leaked and revealed the tablet's features and specification. The forthcoming tablet is coming with a USB Type-C port along with a fingerprint scanner that appears to be embedded on its home button.

In addition, the device is also expected to be equipped with the firm's proprietary S-Pen and a clip where users could attach the accessory to. However, the pencil is not seen to be coming out-of-the-box and should very well be sold separately.

The manual has also revealed that Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will be coming with a four stereo speaker set up. The first two speakers are situated at the top while the remaining two sit at the bottom. As first spotted by Sammobile, the device is also revealed to be featuring a Secure Folder, Air Command and Screen off a memo.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will also come with two variants — SM-T820 and SM-T825 model versions. The first and second model variants will be sporting a "Wi-Fi only" and LTE respectively. The tablet is also speculated to showcase a 9.7-inch display.

Meanwhile, Samsung has yet to announce whether the tablet will be coming with an LCD panel or the company's trademark Super AMOLED display. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4GB of random access memory (RAM) should also be onboard based on the recent rumors surrounding the tablet.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is also rumored to be retailed under two native storage tiers — 32GB or 64GB. These variants should be coming with an expandable microSD support. Other features include Android 7.0 Nougat, a 12-megapixel rear camera and a 5MP front-facing snapper.
