Consumer Electronics Show 2014 is official now in top gear and today the logistics give us a peek at Samsung’s new devices and interesting new software, alongside new tablets. In fact, many of those new slate machines would happen to all have the same manufacturer’s logo on the back. Samsung introduced four (4!) new tablets.
Samsung at CES 2014 has put up banners of the Galaxy NotePro and Galaxy Tab Pro at its stall. Besides the pictured stylus and SIM card slots, the ad was spotted, which is scant on information, but early Galaxy Note Pro rumors suggest it’s a 12.2-inch tablet, which would make it Samsung’s gigantic tablet of the year.
Above mentioned was the courtesy of leaks and rumors. And now, the two tablets have been confirmed by the South Korean giant. The next-generation professional-grade tablets, the “Galaxy Note Pro” & “Galaxy Tab Pro” unveiled when the tech expo kicked off. The specifications and benchmarks scores of the yet-unannounced high-end tablets have already surfaced online.
Playing on the Pro moniker, Samsung’s new tablets fall under the Galaxy TabPro and Galaxy NotePro names, with both supposedly being more multitasking and productivity-focused versions of the Note and Tab slates, already have currently on the market.
Starting with the Galaxy TabPro, buyers will be able to pick the machine up in 8.4-inch, 10.1-inch and 12.2-inch flavors and all three will come complete with a 2560×1600 display.
The S Pen compatible 12.2-inch Galaxy NotePro is expected to be available in Wi-Fi and LTE (4G) variants, bearing model numbers SM-P900 and SM-P905, respectively. Again featuring that eye-pleasing 2560×1600 pixel screen that the TabPro sports. With faux leather look very much Samsung’s best makeover.
All four tablets take aesthetic cues from the Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 smartphone (phablet), which we’ll apparently be able to pick them up later this quarter, though no pricing has been announced for any of the new tablet devices.
The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 will run Android 4.4.2 KitKat and with a new iteration of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI layer on top. The tablet will also support faster Wi-Fi (802.11ac), NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and Infrared Blaster. The 4G version of the tablet will sport a 12.2″ display and will be powered by a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor and Adreno 330 GPU. Come with 3GB of RAM and feature an 8-megapixel rear camera that supports Full HD 1080p video recording and a 2.1MP front snapper for video calls.
While the Galaxy TabPro, bearing the model number Samsung SM-T320 – appeared on US certification agency FCC’s website, as a high-end tablet that will pose an 8.4-inch screen and arrive with a rear camera and support for Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth.
More of you’ll find Android 4.4 KitKat skinned with Samsung’s new Magazine UX that looks rather like Windows 8.1. The new multitasking bent sees Samsung touting its new tablets’ ability to run multiple apps side-by-side to aid cross-app working.
Do you think that Samsung apparently believes that its new tablets can fill the gap between current slates and laptops, be honest? Thoughts!
