Get to know the Galaxy TabPro S better thanks to Samsung's newest infographic
Merely days ago during its press event at CES 2016, Samsung unveiled its the Galaxy TabPro S, a Windows 10-powered tablet that is its answer to Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 as well as the Apple iPad Pro slate. 

It's well-equipped for the task at hand and does not bring a knife to a gunfight: with a 12-inch 2160 x 1440-pixel Super AMOLED display, a 6th-gen 14nm Intel Core M chipset, and 4GB of RAM, the TabPro S might nor be as over-spec'd as its rivals, but is a viable alternative.

In fact, after a brief time spent with it we can safely say that it can potentially be more productive than Apple's iPad Pro, though not as much as the Surface Pro 4. Who knows, Sammy might have a real winner in the portfolio, provided that it prices it just right.

After the dust of CES 2016 has settled of and the excitement around the new gadget announcements has waned a bit, Samsung decided that it's high time to present its new slate in a more consumer-friendly manner. And what's a better way to do so than create a fancy infographic? 

Indeed, the TabPro S is the subject of Samsung's latest one, and it highlights some of the productivity device's traits, like its multifunctionality, ergonomics, and display qualities, among others. Check out the full infographic right below. Also, don't forget to check out our hands-on of the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S once you're ready.

It should be priced around or lower than the i3 128GB variant of surface pro 4. Else it's not gonna succeed much. Skylake core M should be around the same power as the i3 in surface. Correct me if I'm wrong.

SP4 doesn't have a Core i3 version. The base model is 128 GB M3.


Agreed. If the price isn't lower than SP4 I doubt its success. I heard that Sammy will sell it for 999 Euros($1085) for the Wifi Only. Surface with type cover costs $1028. Except for that thin profile and Super Amoled I doubt anyone choosing this over SP4

That variant isn't available in my country :(. The base model here is the i5 4GB which costs 1350$ without keyboard.

And 999 Euros basically means it will cost 999$ or lower in US. Europe has higher prices for products due to high taxes.

If it is priced the same or lower than SP4, I don't see any reason to go for SP4, Portability and screen are pretty good advantages.

Then again, no one will pay 100$ higher for this one either. Everything depends on price.

a 20" 4k OLED monitor from dell costs around 5000$. So I guess OLED displays aren't cheap. 4 of these displays and you have a 24" 5K display for less than 5000$ anyway.

furthermore it has USB-C with which you need to mess with adapters. I think Most will settle for SP4

At least we have an alternative to surface pro 4. Competition is good. And I love OLED.

An underpowered surface pro with an iPad Pro type cover. Am I missing anything?

12. yoosufmuneer (Posts: 1518; Member since: 14 Feb 2015)

You are missing some things
1.iPad Pro doesn't have a type cover but a smart cover
2. If you meant the smart cover this tab pro s cover includes a full trackpad which the smart cover lacks.
3.Its not an underpowered surface pro it shares the same processor with the base SP4.
4.Surface Pro doesn't have an AMOLED Display
5.Surface Pro doesn't have a USB Type C port
6.Surface Pro aint 6'3mm thin its 8.4mm

Please stop bashing

i woudve gone for this one if it hadnt been for that limited viewing angle... it's got almost everything ie. LTE, great screen display as well as aspect ratio, powerful enough processor, supposedly great battery life.. why cant they just copy surface kick-stand like lenovo miix 700 did...

at least it has a usb port. i guess that makes up for the lack of an sd slot

Hope this infograph is enough for some people to realize it's also a Laptop despite it's pointlessly gimped port options...

Well I think they want to compete with surface 4, but I think only Samsung fans will buy it, not for power user and gaming, only for media consumption, hope techxie will but it
