The Galaxy tab S3 is one of the premier Android tablets in a world where Android tablets are becoming rarer with each passing year. Most companies have stopped manufacturing premium tablets and even the companies like Samsung that do release a model every now and then, have stopped releasing them outside a few selected regions. However, with the Tab S3 just being released in Russia, fans from other countries can have their hopes up a bit too. Both the LTE and the Wi-Fi only variants have now been listed on the company's website in Russia.
Unfortunately, the price of the tablet in Russia is alarmingly higher than what it costs in the US or the UK. The 32GB Tab S3 costs around $599 officially in the US, while the same variant will cost someone picking it up in Russia, a whopping $965/RUB 54,990! That's $365 more than the US version, but they are identical to each other in every way. I am not sure how much of that is import duty, but whatever the reason may be, if the price difference is that much in your country as well, you are probably better off avoiding it. The Google Pixel will likely be a better deal if you can leave without the S-Pen, provided that's even available in your region of course.
