Samsung’s HDR-ready Galaxy Tab S3 is now available in the UAE

Big specs for Samsung’s iPad rival, but a big price too

Apart from its combustible personality, we miss Samsung’s Note series of phablets and were rather hoping that the company’s new Tab S3 tablet might include a mildly pocketable 6in or 7in version.

It doesn’t, but we’re not disappointed: the S3 is in fact a big-screen iPad-smashing powerhouse. It runs Android 7.0 through a 2048×1536 HDR-compatible 9.7in screen and comes with a stylus for on-screen note taking. There’s a microSD card slot, it charges by USB-C and there’ll be a 4G version.

Sounds ace… It’s available in the UAE from today, but since it costs US$680 – more than the similar-sized iPad Pro – it might struggle to trump Apple.
