CES 2014: Samsung Introduces Galaxy NotePRO And TabPRO Lineup

NotePro

Samsung, not a company to “underdo” anything, has announced a whole new family of devices,  The Galaxy TabPRO and Galaxy NotePRO. The new line of tablets ship with high-end specs and display sizes up to 12.2 inches!

The front-runner of the PRO lineup is the Galaxy NotePRO. Shipping with a 12.2 inch WQXGA (2560 x 1600) display, 8 megapixel rear facing camera, 2 megapixel front-facing camera, 3GB RAM, 32GB and 64GB storage options, microSD card slot, Android 4.4 KitKat and much more. The WiFi and 3G Model will ship with the Exynos 5 Octa processor, where the LTE variant will ship with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. Of course, since this is a Note, users will also be treated to the S-Pen that’s graced the family since its debut.

If you’re looking for a straight forward tablet and want to skip the S-Pen, the new Galaxy TabPRO tablets might be right up your alley. Featuring the same specifications found on the NotePRO 12.2, the TabPRO also ships in 12.2, 10.1, and 8.4 screen sizes to cover all its bases.

While pricing of the new tablets have yet to be announced, we can expect to see the new tablet lineup sometime in the first quarter of the year.

Introducing Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO (12.2) – the Definitive Tablet Viewing Experience
The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO present the world’s first 12.2-inch WQXGA Widescreen (16:10) display, offering crystal clear resolution (2560×1600) with more than 4 million pixels, making it an ideal platform for every type of content creation and consumption.

A personalized Magazine UX, specifically optimized for a large screen, allows users to further tailor their Galaxy tablet experience for their own needs. The UX enables them to organize their favorite content in an easy-to-use dashboard with automatic feed or news updates and then quickly access the most frequently used apps for a more comfortable reading experience.
