We just saw that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is now available in Europe for €679. While expensive, the Tab 3 seems a capable tablet, and prospective buyers in the United States won’t have to wait long to get their hands on it, either. A listing on Best Buy surfaced today, pricing the tablet at $599.99.

The Tab 3 is the latest Android tablet from the Korean giant. Sporting a 9.7” 2048 x 1536 Super AMOLED screen, the Tab 3 will come equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820, 4 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage (which can be expanded to 256 GB via microSD card). Other features include a USB 3.1 (Gen 1) Type-C port, a 13 MP rear-facing camera, a 5 MP “selfie” camera, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, and a 6,000 mAh battery.

Really, these are all expected for a flagship tablet. The Snapdragon 820 is actually already outdated, as some phones (like Google’s Pixel) have a Snapdragon 821 and the Snapdragon 835 is set to debut in the Galaxy S8 soon. Performance should be pretty close between the SoCs, however.

The Galaxy Tab 3 will also include an S Pen stylus and (if purchased from Best Buy) a 6-month subscription to the Webroot Secure Anywhere security service for up to three Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac devices.

The Tab 3 looks aimed squarely at Apple’s 9.7” iPad Pro - the screen size, resolutions, and even price are the exact same. $600 is still a lot to swallow for an Android tablet, considering there are so many capable devices at much lower costs. We’ll have to see if the Tab 3 can make any kind of dent in the market, or if it’ll just fall away in a market that has still failed to catch the attention of consumers.
