In previous years, Samsung was one of the main attractions at the Mobile World Congress. The Korean company used the event in Barcelona to show its new flagship phone from the Galaxy S line. But that tradition has come to an end this year. Samsung decided to skip the event, at least in terms of the Galaxy S phone. However, there will still be some worthy devices that Samsung will show at the event. Here is what to expect. Samsung’s conference is scheduled for February 26, 7pm local time.

Galaxy Tab S3

Mobile phones are usually the star of the show in Barcelona. This year, however, Samsung chose to go with a tablet. The Galaxy Tab S3 was previously rumored for launch in the fourth quarter of 2016. The first Tab S was released in 2014, the Tab S2 in September 2015. But the third generation took some time.The design of the new tablet should follow the lines of the predecessor, with some bumps in power and features. Some leaks suggest a keyboard accessory, but Samsung might chose to go the S-Pen way. The pen will make its debut in the Galaxy Tab S line with the third generation, and according to rumors, it might be more powerful than ever.

Another important aspect is that Samsung will deliver better audio and recording experience thanks to partnership with AKG. As for the specs of the table, the rumors suggest 9.6-inches display, 1536×2048 pixels resolution, 4GB of RAM, Snapdragon 820 chipset inside, and option LTE connection.

However, even then, the device remained intact after 100,000 folds, with just 6% drop in brightness at the center in the moment of folding.
