Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S3 comes with a steep price tag as pre-orders go live

Unlike the Galaxy Tab S2 that was available in both 8 and 9.7-inch sizes, Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S3 at MWC 2017 in Barcelona in a 9.7-inch size only, with an S Pen included with every unit. With the Galaxy Tab S3 boasting a metal and glass construction and high-end specifications such as the 9.7-inch Super-AMOLED display, Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor, 32GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM, it was fairly obvious that the tablet would also sport a premium price. Join us after the break to find out just how much you can expect to pay for the Galaxy Tab S3.

Best Buy in the US has the Galaxy Tab S3 up for pre-order for $599.99, and that’s for the WiFi version. If you are after the LTE variant, you can probably expect another hundred bucks added on top, at least. Best Buy Canada has the tablet available to pre-order for C$799.99, with a provisional release date of April 24th.

Across the pond in the UK, John Lewis has the Galaxy Tab S3 WiFi available to pre-order for £599.99 ($727), with shipping due to begin in early April. We Brits usually pay a little more for our gadgets than people in the US thanks to sales tax, but Brexit has probably added a few pounds on to the price as well. As it is in the US, if you want LTE connectivity, you can expect to fork out at least another £100 for the privilege.

As you can see from the pricing, Samsung has given the Galaxy Tab S3 a rather steep price tag. What do you think of the pricing for Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S3?

    Yes, please. Just let us pre-order the thing! And if Samsung UK match Germany’s free keyboard folio offer, that would be splendid.
