Samsung releases the Galaxy TabPro S, a Surface Pro 4 competitor in gold
posted by Luis D. / Oct 15, 2016, 7:39 AM
Samsung has released its first new Windows tablet in a long while, the Galaxy TabPro S Gold Edition. A device suitable both for business users and regular consumers, the tablet boasts a detachable keyboard and weights only 1.53 pounds, making it light and portable.
Specs-wise, the TabPro S features a 12-inch Super AMOLED display with a 2560 x 1440 resolution. It's powered by an Intel Core M3 6Y30 chipset with its processor clocked to a maximum of 2.20GHz and an Intel HD Graphics 615 unit handling visuals. There are 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage on board, and the device runs on a 5200mAh battery.
Two 5MP cameras adorn the front and back panel, and there's a single USB 3.1 Type-C port for connectivity and charging. The port can be enhanced with a multiport accessory that adds an additional HDMI port and a USB Type-A port for attaching external devices.
The base model costs $1000, making it a reasonable choice next to a $900 base model Surface Pro 4 with 4GB of RAM and an Intel Core i3 chipset. However, there's no stylus in the bundle. The TabPro Pen is sold separately for $50.
The detachable keyboard is included in the price, though, and features an integrated touchpad, along with a Pogo pin connector that lets the keyboard connet to the tablet without a pairing process or the need for charging. The accessory also comes with a flexible hinge, letting users position the screen as they see fit.

samsung follows innovation... they follow s apple in smartphone... but they outdone them in certain way, especially in note series(which apple follows with big screen) whose name is now paint with dirt all over... Now they're gonna follow surface... Hope they can compete in the coming years..

The tablet is more slim and feel better than the Surface. The OLED screen is the real beast of the Tab Pro S, it really looks fantastic. The bad things are the connectivity and the pen (it sucks).

Add a second USB Type C port (Thunderbolt 3), storage expansion port (MicroSD), and the same S-Pen tech from the Note line (instead of that Bluetooth junk), and it'll be a great competitor to the Surface Pro, just for different consumer. As it is now, it's like the Windows version of apple's stupid 1-port MacBook.
