Samsung just finished up presenting some new tablets at Mobile World Congress 2017, in the form of the Android 7.0 Nougat-based Galaxy Tab S3 and Galaxy Book, which runs Windows 10. The company also used the event to reveal the launch date for its upcoming and highly anticipated Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Samsung has reportedly doubled first shipments of the new smartphones based on sales projections.
