Windows 10 powered Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2 is certified by the FCC?
A tablet produced by Samsung with the model number SM-W727V has been certified by the FCC. The tablet is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2, which recently received its Bluetooth certification. The device is rumored to feature a Gorilla Glass protected 12-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2166 resolution, and could be powered by Intel’s Intel Core i5-7200 7th Generation processor clocked at 3.1GHz. 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM is included, and 128GB of internal storage is inside.

A 13MP rear camera is on board, along with a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies and video chats. A large 5070mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Windows 10 is pre-installed. The "V" at the end of the model number means that the tablet will be offered by Verizon. That is confirmed by the appearance of the Verizon logo on the sketch of the tablet in the FCC documentation. The SM-W727V should be offered with two variants, one with Wi-Fi connectivity and the other with Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity. The tablet will support the S Pen and the Type Cover accessories.

With the Samsung Galaxy S8 appearing at MWC only on film, the manufacturer is focusing on tablets at Barcelona as seen by the image of a slate on its invitation to its MWC event. Another tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, is expected to be introduced during the annual show. The buzz around the Coke machine is that the latter will have flagship-type specs and will feature the Snapdragon 820 chipset under the hood. Unlike the Galaxy Tab Pro 2, the Galaxy Tab S3 will be an Android flavored tablet.

Depends what you use them for, general use, mobile apps and some word processing, basic photo editing and general media consumption they can handle just fine, including 10 bit HEVC hardware support for some. If you need raw processing power you should be looking to buy a laptop, not a tablet.

Try lugging around a laptop on remote locations. Powerful tablets are very welcome and I agree with SIGPRO, Androids and God forbid, iPads are not up to the task. In my field, AutoCAD 360 on the go is a requirement. That prog needs horsepower and a laptop isn't feasible. No, I don't use a Surface but I do use a Windows slate with enough power to yank a battleship off a sand bank.

You can buy some pretty slim laptops, or notebooks/ultrabooks depending on what you need. Weight is just an excuse.

You've obviously never had to do it every day, 10 hours a day. For the record, it's not the weight, it's the bulkiness of a laptop. I'm 6' 200lbs. I can handle 5lbs on the tip of my d!ck. Try unfolding a laptop under a rooftop unit in 95 degree weather with 95% humidity to download operating parameters or to verify post-tension cable locations on CAD. Yeah, go back to your dorm room and let me know when you're ready to do some real work.

That sounds like a very specific situation, a situation the majority of us will never be in. It may be relevant to you but means bugger all to the rest of us.

A tablet is still less of an issue vs a folding laptop in any situation. In fact there is no situation you can name where a folding laptop is a better option than something like a Surface or the above option. You guys will never get it, because your head is stuck on stupid and you have no degree of ability to have any logic. Weight isn't an issue. Its simple situations like this: Real Estate - I'm showing off property. Sure I could carry a fliptop or a tablet. I need Windows, but I really don't need a keyboard. All I need is a web browswer, the app for showing the property and a way to make notations without typing. A Dr or Nurse in a hospital carry a big ass flip-top vs a single form factor tablet hwree they can tuck a tablet under the arm and give you a shot vs setting a heavier bulkier option down all the time. TRheer are millions of people who have jobs where they carry a computer of some kind all day. You say special situation? What is special about a job? Just because you don't do the job, that makes you less capable of understand how one solution could be better? I mean think outside the box dude. You sound like people who drive full size gas guzzling SUV's in the city, when they could use something smaller and more agile and costs less money.

"In fact there is no situation you can name where a folding laptop is a better option than something like a Surface or the above option." Really? and you have the cheek to tell me to think outside the box.

But you can do all that on the SP4 or just get an SP3 for the same price as an iPad and you have a more versatile device. You have 100% compatibility with Windows accessories and applications and you still have a great slew of mobile apps. Even though many are use to certain devs, I found great powerful mobile editing app in the MS app store. They offer way more features and I still paid less than a comparable app on IOS. I guess what truly matter is not what you want, but how lazy people are in seeing what is offered somewhere else. They come here or some other blog and read all the negativity from stupid fanboys o now as much about tech as a sloth and get turned away from what is a better option. The SP3/4 blows the doors off the iPad. The IPad has the app advantage as far as mobile. But that is only if you want stripped down featureless boring limited garbage. For example, I use the iPad also for making music. So of course I have PCP for the iPad. Apple simply ruined the app. Pullout the Surface and I have this application call StaffPad, which allows me to write my own music, export it to MIDI and revise it with my CakeWalk and other apps and then I can import it into Adobe Audition and add my effects and loops and then bring it into my Mac VM into Logic Pro and finish. All from one device. Can the iPad so that? Nope!

While the pricing for iPads is a bit on the overpriced side, they are definitely not sucky in the slightest. They're perfect for someone who just wants to kick back on the couch with a large screened device to play games and browse Facebook, etc. Yeah the same could be done on an Android tablet, but let's be real here....iPad destroys Android when it comes to tablet sales.

Yes, because sales are directly proportional to how good a tablet is. Errm...... BS

They are. You think people buy s**tty products? If that was the case, the Nexus 9 would have flown off the shelves lol.

Yes, they do. Lots of people buy s**tty products based on the brand.

Sigh......And why do you think that is? Is it because that brand's "s**tty" label is of higher value than an unknown brand's "Quality" label? The answer is of course, yes. A perfect example has been demonstrated with LeEco's triumphant march into the West. They came here on high, believing they could supplant Apple and Samsung. What have they done since getting here? Seen drastic reorganization, lost nearly 3 billion dollars in value, and forced their CEO to take a massive paycut. Where did they go wrong? Thinking that people are "stupid frugal" when buying consumer luxuries. Just because something is cheap and sounds like a steal, doesn't mean it is one. LeEco can make all the crappy cheap phones they want, it won't change anything here, because: A) people aren't broke enough to go coupon shopping with phones, and B) the established brand's make quality goods ALWAYS. TLDR- Stop trying to make buying because of brand an insult to consumers. I'm pretty sure you buy your Android phone from a brand you trust, right? Why should they be different? Because they pay more? It's their money. You think your purchase isn't a "s**tty product" to someone else? Don't be obtuse...

But lots of brands are an insult to customers. How do you explain the existence of names like IBM, Xerox, APple, Beats, and many clothing lines. DO they make some quality products. Yes Watch this video and it will explain so I don't have too But I will be short and say this. The problem with brand names is this. Many fo them did once upon a time make very good quality products. Now many of them make cheap easy to break garbage. But because they use ads with popular people some us like, they use that to make you think, wellif my favorite artist is using this, it must be good. Now company's make garbage and sell it like its still that same high quality product. Let me use my recent experience. My iPhone 4 and 4S, as great as they have been, they are old. My 4S is really slow with iOS 9.3.5 and I need more storage too. So I have been shopiing for the White/Gold iPhone 6 128GB and I don't want to spend more than $300. However even with option at $350, the display is separating from the case, or its heavily scuffed. In fact some phone si looked at has more damage than my very old iPhone 4's. We already know todays iPhone will barely last 2 years before the battery won't hold a charge. But this is the same Apple that made the iPhone 4's which are very sturdy compared to there craptastic iPhone 6/7 models where the paint chips easier, the glass scratches easier and more. Of course people go with familiar brands and that's the problem. These brands are now making garbage, but then people are afraid to try something new. That is why names like Apple and Beats get over and push subpar garbage at high costs because you fools will still buy it because of a brand.

As a gamer I just don't see the point in these, it's not powerful enough to run anything demanding and it's overkill for mobile apps. I wonder how long it takes for throttling to kick in under load, not very I'd guess.

But its powerful enough for some low end gamers!!!

Low end gamers ? That's lowest settings with 30-60fps (depending on the game), hardly an enjoyable experience.

Turn back into laptop? Microsoft would clearly push for this because their software is better suited for it.

With x86 app compatibility on arm we could see more windows tablets
