Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 12.2 officially announced: WQXGA display, Octa/Quad-core CPU, Android 4.4 KitKat
Along with the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy TabPRO 12.2 at its CES press conference. It’s the biggest and most high-end tablet in Samsung’s Galaxy Tab series, and apart from the lack of an S Pen and any stylus-related features, it’s pretty much identical to the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2. The display is a 12.2-inch unit of 2,560×1,600 resolution, and the back of the tablet is covered by Samsung’s faux leather material, which we’re seeing on almost every new Samsung device (as an answer to the constant complaints against plastic.)
The Galaxy TabPRO 12.2 features an octa-core Exynos 5 Octa processor clocked at 1.9GHz (quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor on the LTE model), 3 GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 32/64GB of storage expandable via microSD card, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS + GLONASS connectivity, IR blaster, and a 9,500 mAh battery. It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, and thankfully, a recent apps button has replaced the menu button that’s been a hallmark of Samsung’s devices since the last few years.
