Samsung officially announces Galaxy NotePro 12.2-inch Android tablet

NotePRO_1

The folks at Samsung have officially announced the 12.2-inch Samsung Galaxy NotePro at CES 2014. Samsung says its goal was to kick the year off by flexing their muscles in the tablet space. You’re probably curious about those specs right away, aren’t ya? Have no fear — we’re not going to delay the goodness any longer.

Samsung Galaxy NotePro Specs

Samsung really went all out with this thing. If a gigantic display wasn’t enough, perhaps the entirety of this package will do the trick in getting your excitement levels up:

  • 12.2-inch WXQGA (2560 x 1600) display
  • Samsung Octa-Core Exynos processor (WiFi/WiFi + 3G) and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (LTE)
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 8 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front camera
  • 32GB / 64GB of internal storage, with microSD expansion up to 64GB
  • WiFi ac MIMO, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS
  • 9,500mAh battery
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

And there you have it. It’s certainly ready to kick some butt and take some names with that collection of silicon, and we aren’t surprised that it’s yet another entry in Samsung’s Note series that’s taking things to the next level.

Samsung Galaxy NotePro Features

Specs are only half the battle, of course. The NotePro will come equipped with Samsung’s standard TouchWiz-enabled user experience, with a couple of updated elements from the last time we’ve seen one of their Android tablets launch.

One of those elements include a bigger emphasis on the Magazine UX, giving you a look at all the content and info important to you in a clean, easy-to-view way. It also includes standard S Pen features, multi-window productivity, and more. It’s also good for business, apparently, with Cisco WebEx meetings built-in, and Samsung e-Meeting collaboration tools.

Samsung Galaxy NotePro Pricing and Availability

The Samsung Galaxy NotePro is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2014, but no specific dates, regions, or even a price point has been communicated just yet. We’ll certainly be on the lookout for what should be one of the most sought after tablets on the market whenever it launches. Stay tuned for our hands-on look from CES 2014!

    Yep, I want one!

  • albogs

    What about an updated 8 inch note? Do they think it’s too close in size to the note 3?

  • C-Law

    Doesn’t look like kit Kat or android at all. I guess I’m used to that with them though

    • Lennatron

      I’ll probably get down voted for this but the screen shown in the picture looks a lot better then anything in stock Android. Tablets have big screens, why waste space with gigantic widgets and home screen icons.

        down voted for having a different opinion than me (actually for funzies)

  • Treyhunnid

    • DDroid45

      FYT, take Windows and their lack of apps

  • Alex Alexander

    I want that Magazine UX (touchwiz?) on my Note 3.

  • lolwut

    I can see that Samsung has moved from copying iOS to copying Windows Metro style

    • lolwut

      And don’t deny it just because we hate Apple

  • Ruel Smith

    Can we get some real developers to do something better with Touchwiz? I like it, but its a complete resource hog. On top of that, I replaced the launcher with Nova Prime, and now I can’t use the cool monthly calendar widget? Come on… Touchwiz looks good, to me – far better than stock Android on the Nexus, but it is a resource hog than can bog down otherwise great hardware.

    Lastly, I don’t like what I’ve seen of the ultra saturated iOS 7-like colors they may be using, nor the Metro-like aspects of the UI. Neither are appealing to me. I like Android how it is. Don’t give me what I don’t want.
