Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 announced ahead of Samsung’s CES press conference
First it was Samsung’s billboards that gave it away, and now the company has made the Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 (yes, TabPRO is a single word) official on its press website ahead of the company’s CES press conference (though the page was removed soon after, but it should go back up in the next few hours after the CES announcement takes place). We already got the full scoop on its hardware earlier today, and as expected, the leaked specs were pretty much spot on.
The Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 features a 10.1-inch Super Clear LCD of 2,560×1,600 resolution, and is powered by a 1.9GHz Exynos Octa or 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU depending on whether it’s a Wi-Fi (or Wi-Fi + 3G) or LTE model, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM (the leak indicated 3 GB of RAM). It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box – the press images show off a new lockscreen / homescreen interface, though we’ll have to wait for further details on whether Samsung has added / changed something considerably in TouchWiz as has been rumored.
The rest of the hardware on the 10.1-inch PRO tablet includes an 8-megapixel rear camera (1080p video @ 60 fps on the Snapdragon model, 1080p @ 30 fps on Exynos model), a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 16/32 GB of internal storage expandable via microSD cards, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS + GLONASS connectivity, an IR blaster, and a 8,220 mAh battery. The Wi-Fi model weighs in at 469g, while the LTE variant is a tag heavier at 477g.
Details on pricing and availability aren’t available yet, though based on our insider info, the Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 will go on sale in black and white color options sometime around week six this year. The official announcement is only a few hours away, and once that comes to pass, we’ll be sure to update you guys with more details.
