It’s been a while since we’ve seen a new premium tablet from Samsung, but they’re back and looking better than ever with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. We’ve already published our full written review of the tablet, which includes plenty of little details that can’t quite be fit in the video, so be sure to check that out after you watch the video below. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S3 is their latest premium tablet, sporting both a premium build and of course a high-end spec list worthy of the price tag. At $599 this isn’t the cheapest tablet around, but it’s certainly not the most expensive either, and is built to go toe to toe with Apple’s biggest and baddest iPads in every way.
One of Samsung’s biggest highlights in the marketing campaign has been the inclusion of the S-Pen, the popular Wacom-based stylus that’s been included with every Galaxy Note phone and tablet to this day. This marks the first time the S-Pen is debuting on a non-Note branded device from Samsung, and also marks the largest S-Pen ever designed too. Modeled more after a regular pen rather than a stylus, the S-Pen that comes with the Galaxy Tab S3 is no slouch, sporting 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, a 0.7mm rubber tip for ultra accurate drawing and writing, and a build that’s far more premium than ever. You’ll never need to charge it either thanks to the fact that the Wacom digitizer is built into the tablet itself, something other competitors can’t quite match with.
Samsung has included the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processing package aboard, as well as 4GB of RAM and a 6,000mAh battery inside this ultra slim package. The all metal and glass body of the Galaxy Tab S3 measures an insanely thin 6mm, and fits right in with the premium segment Samsung is looking to take back this year after the missteps it had last year with the Galaxy N0te 7. Either way Samsung is starting the year off with a bang, producing the best tablet they’ve likely ever produced. Be sure to see what we thought of it, and see it in action along with the new keyboard case that makes this one more like a laptop replacement than just a tablet.
