Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 priced at $600 in the U.S.

Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab S3, which got its official unveiling at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last month, has finally gotten a price tag in the United States. A Best Buy listing confirms the device will cost $599.99 when it lands, but you cannot pre-order just yet.

Like its main competitor, the iPad Pro, the Galaxy Tab S3 boasts a 9.7-inch display with a 2048 x 1536 resolution. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM, plus 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded to 256GB via the microSD card slot. The device also offers a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and support for the S Pen, the Vulkan API for greater gaming, and HDR video playback.

As you would expect for a new Android device, the Galaxy Tab S3 ships with Nougat pre-installed, complete with features like multi-window. Samsung is also offering a keyboard case — also similar to iPad Pro’s — which helps users be more productive on the go. This is sold separately, however, and there’s no word on how much it will cost yet.

Best Buy says the Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Tab S3 (there’s also a version with LTE but that’s not listed as of now) will cost $599.99 in the U.S. That matches the price of the 32GB iPad Pro with a 9.7-inch display. The retailer doesn’t tell us when the slate will be available, and you cannot pre-order just yet — but it does promise that it’s “coming soon.”
