Samsung Keyboard Cover
We'll start with Samsung's own Bluetooth keyboard cover which is designed to snap onto the built-in POGO pin connectors on the tablet itself. Whereas other cases rely on a Bluetooth connection for connecting the keyboard, Samsung's is a direct connection which should result in the most responsive typing.
The cover folds back to become a handy stand so you can type comfortably on your lap or on a table. When you're not typing away, the cover provides protection for your screen.
Samsung's keyboard cover is lightweight, adding very little bulk to your Tab S3, so your tablet remains as portable as ever and even more convenient. The keyboard is so thin that you'd hardly know there was a keyboard tucked in there with the case closed.
This case is available in multiple color options at Samsung for $130, or you can get it on Amazon for just $72.
