If it were any other February, we'd probably be waiting for Samsung to launch a new version of its flagship smartphone. But after the Note7 fiasco and the subsequent long investigation into what happened, the Galaxy S8 launch got pushed to a later, yet-unannounced date.

However, judging by this invite I've just received, Samsung will be launching something this February - and it's probably going to be a tablet.

The invite itself has no info beyond the date and place, and frankly, the image could be a stylized representation of anything. But the Galaxy Tab S3 has recently been certified by the FCC, which means it should be ready for a February launch.

Furthermore, it's high time Samsung released a new Android tablet. The Galaxy Tab S2 was launched in two sizes - 8 and 9.7 inches - in July 2015, though Samsung did follow up with the larger Galaxy Tab A 10.1 in May 2016.

Rumours claim the Galaxy Tab S3 will have a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel rear camera (plus a 5-megapixel selfie cam) and a 9.6-inch screen with a 2,048x1536 pixel resolution. Some rumours also claim the device will come in two sizes, just like its predecessor.
