Samsung unveils its MWC press invitation

Samsung has teased its fans by releasing invitations for a press event for a possible launch announcement during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The invite itself does not reveal much, but rumours have surfaced that the South Korean giant will be announcing the launch of its Galaxy Tab S3. Reports have also revealed that the alleged tablet cleared through the FCC, meaning is could be expected soon.

The tablet is rumoured to have a 9.6-inch display with 2,048×1,536-pixel resolution, a 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, Android 7.0 Nougat platform and 4GB of RAM.

Samsung typically unveils its next flagship device during MWC, however the South Korean giant has revealed it will not be showcasing the Galaxy S8 this year and instead may be announced after. Samsung's mobile head DJ Koh released the news but did not state when Samsung will launch its next smartphone.

The announcement will be made on 26 February 2017.
