That premature Best Buy listing from a couple of days ago was right, as it turns out. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 really is going to cost $599.99 in the US. The price has been made official by the Korean company today.
Additionally, we also get launch details. The tablet will be up for pre-order starting tomorrow (coincidentally or not, at the same time as the LG G6), and it will become available on March 24, which is next Friday. At the same time the keyboard accessory for the tablet goes on sale for $129.99.
Pre-orders will be taken care of by Samsung's own online store as well as "select retailers such as Best Buy and Amazon". You'll be able to choose from black and silver for color options.
The Galaxy Tab S3 pairs a 9.7-inch 2,048x1,536 Super AMOLED display with HDR support with quad speakers tuned by AKG for entertainment purposes. The tablet ships with the iconic S Pen in the box, which is billed as a productivity tool along with the optional keyboard. The device is powered by the Snapdragon 820, aided by 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. It's kept running by a 6,000 mAh cell and boots Android 7.0 Nougat.
no one cares what you think.. all batteries are like that. if you use them heavy will degrade after six months
I paid serious money for the first Tab S, then again for S2. Even with light to moderate use, I noticed that the battery started to need charging more frequently after only 8 months, so I sold them. Never again.
If Samsung increases $100 more to provide the new Galaxy Note 10 with real flagship hardware, it would be much better. I wish to see new Galaxy Note 10 selling at $700.
