Without much ado, Samsung has launched a Windows 10-powered 2-in-1 tablet dubbed “Galaxy TabPro S” to give strong competition to Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 and Apple’s iPad Pro.
This 12-inch Super AMOLED display clad Samsung Galaxy TabPro S with 2,160 x 1,440 pixels resolution is being marketed as a business-centric device as well as for entertainment and gaming. According to Samsung Mobile Press, it can be used to enhance “productivity at home, in the office, or on-the-go.”
This tablet apparently offers full PC functionality with the help of “Windows 10 Home” or “Windows 10 Pro for business.” Moreover, it supports LTE Cat. 6 connectivity to offer phenomenal data speed like never-before and comes equipped with 5,200 mAh battery unit. It also features rapid charging mechanism and the housed battery cell will apparently be able to charge 100 percent in just 2.5 hours. After a full battery charge, the device will reportedly be able to provide up to 10.5 hours of battery life.
Under the hood, the Galaxy TabPro S comes powered by a sixth-generation Intel Core M processor and backed by 4 GB of RAM. It is worth noting that this processor configuration does not require an internal fan to cool down the hardware components.
To top it off, this tablet is quite economical because it consumes only 4.5W of power so as to eliminate noise disruption and to offer maximize efficiency. Samsung will apparently release the device as 128 GB and 256 GB storage variants.
Interestingly, the South Korean tech giant is also offering a full-sized keyboard cover along with the slate to improve usability. This keyboard features a flexible hinge to provide enhanced dual-angle viewing. The icing on the cake is the Pogo pin on the Galaxy TabPro S keyboard. It apparently gets rid of the need to pair or charge separately.
