The eager folks at Samsung Mobile Press pulled the announcement trigger prematurely, leaking out the upcoming Galaxy TabPROs in their full glory, with specs, pics and the like - from the 8-incher through the 10.1" middle ground, to the largest, 12" one.
The official specs concur with the ones we heard about yesterday, namely Super Clear LCDs with 2,560×1,600 pixels resolution, a 1.9 GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor for the 3G versions, and 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset for the LTE ones. You'd also get 3 GB of RAM for the 12" TabPRO and Note PRO with a stylus, and 2 GB RAM for the rest, an 8 MP rear and 2 MP front-facing cameras, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, IR support with Samsung WatchON.
The 12.2" model rings in 247ppi pixel density and 295.6 x 204 x 7.95mm dimensions, with 732g (Wi-Fi) or 740g (LTE) weight, and 9500mAh battery. It will sport 32/64GB of storage in addition to the microSD card slot. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 comes in 16/32 GB configurations, flaunts 298ppi pixel density, smaller 8220mAh battery, and more compact 243.1 x 171.4 x 7.3 mm dimensions, weighing the very reasonable 469g (Wi-Fi) or 477g (4G LTE).
Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is the one to keep an eye on, though, as it also carries a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution display, like the whole PRO line, which means the breathtaking 359ppi. Its specs mimic those of the Pro 10.1, but naturally in a smaller 128.5 x 219 x 7.2mm package that weighs 331g (Wi-Fi) or 336g (4G LTE), and sports a more fitting for the size 4800mAh battery.
All the TabPROs are expected to arrive this quarter with Android 4.4 KitKat coated apparently with a new tablet-oriented interface by Samsung, and the price is what will make or break their success story.
