Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2, 10.1, 8.4 all get full specs, press renders leaked
Later today Samsung will hold an event in Las Vegas during CES where it will unveil a bunch of new tablets. We first heard that the Korean company was planning on doing so a few weeks ago, and in the meantime we even got some preliminary leaked specs for one of the tablets. Today, though, everything about them was leaked. Specs, pictures – everything.
So without further ado, let’s take them one by one. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 has a 12.2-inch 2,560×1,600 touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front camera, a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor for the Wi-Fi+3G version, a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor for the LTE version, 3 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of built-in storage space, and a 9,500 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
The Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 will be identical in all respects, save for one: the Note Pro will obviously get the S Pen stylus, while the Tab Pro won’t.
The Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 will come with a smaller 10.1-inch touchscreen but with the same 2,560×1,600 resolution, 2 GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB of internal storage, and an 8,220 mAh battery. Otherwise, it’s got the same specs as its bigger siblings noted above.
Finally, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. This seems like it’s getting ready to take the pixel density crown away from the iPad Mini with Retina Display. With an 8.4-inch 2,560×1,600 touchscreen, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 manages an impressive 359 ppi, easily beating Apple’s best effort.
The Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 will also come with a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, an 8 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front camera, 2 GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB of storage, and a 4,800 mAh battery. It too should run Android 4.4 KitKat from day one.
All of the new tablets feature Android’s multitasking button instead of Samsung’s much-loved (but deprecated by Google) Menu button – to the left of the Home button. And all of the new devices have plastic-made leather-like back covers, a la the Galaxy Note 3. This seems to be something Samsung quite enjoys using, so who knows, maybe we’ll see it on the Galaxy S5 too.
While not leaked this time around, the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite could possibly get announced today too – this being the cheapest tablet that Samsung has ever made. However, “cheap” is not a word we expect to be associated with the leaked tablets above. We are hoping though that the Korean company won’t decide to overprice them too much. If it really is serious about tablets this year, then it must do everything to sell as many as possible after all.
