There’s a new tablet in town. The Galaxy Tab S3, Samsung’s newest member of the mobile device family, gives past tablets a run for their money. Whether you’re gaming, working, or creating, this is one device that fits all. It’s a blank canvas, theater, and productivity hub all in one.

The latest tablet looks as sleek as it runs. It’s like the Tab S2 underwent an extreme makeover, resulting in a new and improved look, feel, and function.

Unlike Samsung’s former tablets, the Tab S3 is completely covered in glass from front to back, resulting in a more elegant design. You won’t want to put this thing down, it feels so good. And with a 6000 mAh battery, you won’t have to very often. You can listen to music for over 100 hours before needing a charge. Heavy internet users will go at least eight hours before needing to plug in, and binge-watchers can settle in for at least 12 hours of video.

This HDR-ready device provides cinematic quality on the go, thanks to a Super AMOLED display. Gamers will appreciate the Vulkan graphics, which make everything from RPGs to puzzles come alive. Speaking of games, Samsung’s added power saver, mute games, and ongoing calls modes to the Tab S3 for an enhanced experience. And stay tuned, because game broadcasting is coming soon.

Improved graphics are nothing without the power to keep them running up to speed. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor is packed inside with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. You can expand to 256GB with a memory card, sold separately. You also get 15GB of free storage with Samsung Cloud.

The tablet features four built-in speakers tuned by AKG for crisp, professional-grade sound. The main camera snaps at 13 megapixels, while the 5-megapixel front-facing camera makes for video chats without the annoyingly blurry, pixelated recipients.

The Tab S3 hits shelves March 24, however, you can pre-order one starting March 17 and have it shipped to your door on release day. The tablet retails at $599.99, and if you pre-order, Samsung will throw in a free 64GB memory card. It comes with the S Pen stylus, which features true-to-life pressure and various brush and pen types, plus no need to be charged.

Need to type faster? Add the new dedicated keyboard to your device for $120. It plugs directly into the Tab S3 for easy connectivity, auto-pairs to Bluetooth, and never needs charging. Add the fact that Samsung Connect seamlessly syncs your Samsung smartphone and Tab S3, and you can easily switch from mobile phone to tablet, to laptop.
