Samsung Electronics did not use Mobile World Congress MWC to launch its latest flagship smartphones, but that does not mean that the South Korean tech giant kept quiet at the show. In fact, it did quite the opposite with the announcement of not one, but two new Android tablets, one of which is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. It is the first HDR tablet, stylishly designed with advanced computing technology offering a premium mobile experience.
