After launching the Galaxy Tab S3 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona in late February, Samsung finally revealed that the new tablet is already available for pre-order in the US prior to its official release in select markets on Friday, March 24.

The South Korean mobile and consumer electronics products manufacturer started offering its latest flagship tablet on its online store, as well as through other authorized resellers like Amazon and Best Buy. Then, the product will be shipped during its scheduled release date.

The third-generation Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will feature a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display screen that also has the similar 2,048 x 1,536-pixel QHD resolution that has been offered by its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. The device is also reported to be HDR-ready, which means that it is the very first tablet device that can support any video with a larger dynamic range.

Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 features 4 GB of RAM with a Snapdragon 820 processor complete with 32 GB of internal storage. But users have the option to expand the device's memory capacity up to 256 GB using its microSD card slot.

The new flagship tablet also has a 13-megapixel primary rear camera, while the front shooter can capture decent selfies because of its 5-megapixel capacity. It will also feature several connectivity options, including WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, 4G LTE, USB Type-C, and GPS. It will be powered by a 6,000 mAh battery to allow it to run smoothly for up to 12 hours of usage or video playback. The device will also come with an improved S Pen.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will be available in silver or black variants, which will be sold for $599.99. According to reports, Samsung's new tablet will be more expensive than its rival, Apple's iPad Pro.

Meanwhile, those in the UK will be able to get their hands on the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 on Friday, March 31.
