Samsung releases the Galaxy TabPro S, a Surface Pro 4 competitor in gold

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.
