Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2 allegedly in the works

Remember the Galaxy TabPro S that Samsung launched earlier this year? This was the first Galaxy-branded device to come with anything other than Android (Windows 10) and is to this day considered a true competitor for the ultra-popular Microsoft Surface Pro series. As it turns out, a new report claims that Samsung is already working on a successor, the appropriately named Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2. 

If a new report from Sammobile is to be believed, the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2 will share some of its specs with its predecessor. Included here are the latest Core M processor from Intel as well as a 12-inch Super AMOLED display running at a resolution of 2160 by 1440 pixels. 

Allegedly, Samsung will launch four separate variants of the Tab Pro S2, which bear the codenames SM-W728, SM-W727, SM-W723, and SM-W720. At the moment, it’s unclear how these variants will stack up against each other, but it’s probably safe to assume that (at least) some of these variants will come with LTE support. On the software side, the Galaxy Tab Pro S2 will most likely run the full version of Microsoft Windows 10.

The report doesn’t mention any specific release date timeframe for the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2. If you’re interested in Samsung’s second-gen Surface Pro competitor, stick around. Chances are good for the tablet to make its way online through unofficial channels before the actual unveiling.

samsung already has ativ line for windows phones, tablets, and ultrabooks. So why doesn't samsung name it Samsung Ativ S pro?

Because many consumers and retailers and even local samsung arms have given up on the Ativ brand. Launching it as a Galaxy product gives them the ability to sell the product nearly anywhere there is a smartphone presence, eg on my trip to Singapore they were selling the TabPro, but the rep confirmed they did not stock other Windows-equipped Samsung devices.

This AMOLED display in 13" on a Surface Pro 5 would be perfection.

The OLED display is the main selling point but personally I think that Samsung is too quick to replace their products lineup making a Surface pro a better buy in the long run. Who like to buy a product with its replacement coming in 6 months cycle.
