Samsung, the South Korean smartphone maker has started rolling out invites for its event at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The event is slated for February 26, 2017.

The South Korean brand was about to unveil its latest S line flagship smartphone during MWC, however, due to the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, the brand has delayed the unveiling of the smartphone and it stated that it won't be unveiling the device this MWC.

The invite also lacks the term 'Unpacked’, the name Samsung usually calls its event. Instead, this invite has an image of a large display and a home button which clearly hints at a tablet.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S3 has been doing rounds in rumour town for a while now, and it seems highly likely that the device would be unveiled at this year's MWC.

According to various hints and rumours, the device is expected to feature a 9.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2048x1536 pixels. The tablet is sporting a 4:3 aspect ratio like the iPads.

Under the hood, the tablet is expected to be rocking a dated, yet powerful Snapdragon 820 by Qualcomm, paired with 4GB of RAM. The device is expected to come loaded with 32GB of internal memory with an option for microSD expandability.

For optics, the device might get a 12-megapixel camera at the back and a 5-megapixel selfie shooter at the front.

It'll be interesting to see how the device does in a tablet market that is now rife with depression.
