Galaxy Tab S3 & Free Book Cover Priced At $799 In Canada

The Galaxy Tab S3 will retail for $799 CAD in Canada and all pre-ordered devices will ship with a free Book Cover, mobile SyrupReports, citing Samsung. The pre-orders for the device will open on Wednesday, March 1. Canadian consumers will be able to order the Galaxy Tab S3 from Samsung Experience stores, as well as Best Buy and Staples. Samsung's latest and greatest Android tablet will officially hit the market in Canada on March 24, though it's possible that pre-ordered units will start shipping even before that date. The Book Cover that will come bundled with the Galaxy Tab S3 retails for $89.99 CAD, while the aforementioned $799 CAD figure likely refers to the base, Wi-Fi-only model of the Galaxy Tab S3, meaning that the Canadian price is actually lower than what the device will retail for in Europe. For added context, the European price tag of Samsung's latest tablet starts at €679, which translates to just under $940 CAD.

The Galaxy Tab S3 features a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2048 by 1536 pixels. The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 system-on-chip (SoC) and 4GB of RAM, in addition to shipping with 32GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD card slot. Samsung's new Android tablet comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and flash, as well as a 5-megapixel front shooter. The Galaxy Tab S3 is powered by a 6,000mAh battery and charges via a USB Type-C port. While the tablet supports fast charging, its battery capacity likely means you won't be able to fully charge it as quickly as something like the Galaxy S7 Edge that supports the same technology but features a much smaller battery for obvious reasons. Finally, the Galaxy Tab S3 boasts an integrated fingerprint sensor and will be sold in silver and black variants. As expected, the tablet ships with Android 7.0 Nougat.

There's still no word on how much the LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab S3 will cost in Canada, but more details on that front are bound to be available shortly. Overall, Samsung's latest offering seems like a quality device that could catch the eyes of many users looking for a new tablet.
