Samsung released the Galaxy TabPro S earlier this year, but the South Korean company has just announced a slightly upgraded version earlier today. The new TabPro S Gold Edition comes with a new gold finish and bigger RAM.
The Galaxy TabPro S Gold Edition still comes with the same 12-inch quad HD 1440p AMOLED display and detachable keyboard case. The major difference here is that it comes with 8GB of RAM instead of just 4GB. When the original TabPro S came out back in April, its performance was noticeably lacking due to the meager RAM size, as pointed out by The Verge. Doubling the RAM should deliver better performance.
As for internal storage, the Gold Edition comes with 256GB of SSD storage instead of just 128GB. The rest of its specifications remains unchanged. The TabPro S Gold Edition still comes with the 2.2 GHz Intel Core M3 processor, 5-megapixel front and rear cameras, and it still runs Windows 10 Home. The device’s size and weight also haven’t changed still being 6.3 millimeters thin and 1.53 pounds light (without the keyboard).
Samsung also claims that the TabPro S Gold Edition’s 5,200 mAh battery has a 10.5-hour life on a single charge. The device also supports an enhanced fast charging feature that allows it to fully charge in just 2.5 hours via its USB Type-C port. Speaking of ports, the Gold Edition still comes with only two USB-A ports and an HDMI out.
Although the slight upgrade and new gold finish will surely attract some consumers, its pricing will make a lot of people have second thoughts. The Galaxy TabPro S Gold Edition sells for $999.99. When the original TabPro S first came out it sold for $899, and now it’s selling for $799, as pointed out by Tech Radar.
The Galaxy TabPro S is now available for purchase at Best Buy and Samsung.com.
