The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S

At CES this month, Samsung revealed its Galaxy TabPro S. A high spec tablet that uses a 12-inch AMOLED display. Surprisingly, though, this new gadget does not run od Android, but is wed to Windows.

Specifications reported by CNET include: 12-inch, 2,160 x 1,440 Super AMOLED screen Sixth-generation Intel Core M3-6Y30 processor (dual-core, up to 2.2GHz) Intel HD Graphics 515 4GB memory, 128GB or 256GB storage (SSD) 5200mAh battery with up to 10.5 hours battery life Charges in 2.5 hours with USB Type-C port USB Type-C port also capable of USB 3.1 data and HDMI video output (with optional adapter) Optional Bluetooth stylus 5-megapixel front camera, 5-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1 GPS and GLONASS positioning LTE model available in some regions.


Although pricing is currently unavailable, one can assume that the Galaxy TabPro S will sell for over $1500, since Samsung already has a reputation for its expensive products.

A key point to pay attention to is the AMOLED display, since it is going to be the first one used in a Samsung computer. Also, the USB Type-C is something that customers have never seen on a Samsung product.

There is, on the other hand, some skepticism regarding the Core M3 variant, which will be the only one available. The 4GB RAM is not considered as an advantage, since devices from different manufacturers have a whole lot more to offer.

This device looks like its made out of a metal construction, making it the first Galaxy Tab of such build. Another point regarding design is that Samsung has paid attention to detail carefully, following the same approachas with the Galaxy S6 Edge+.
