Samsung announces Galaxy TabPRO tablets!

Samsung has kicked off the CES madness with four tablets that will accommodate to all users. These come in a variety of sizes and types, but in this post we will talk about the Galaxy TabPROs.

These come in 3 different sizes: 12.2 inches, 10.1 inches and 8.4 inches. It is not often that we see a 12.2-inch device, making this a rather interesting device. Are these worth your time and hard-earned money, though? Let’s look at what Samsung is offering.

TabPRO 12.2

  • 8.4-inch WQXGA (1600×2560) Super clear LCD
  • Android 4.4 (KitKat)

  • 2GB RAM, 16/32 GB Internal Memory, microSD (Up to 64GB)
  • microSD (Up to 64GB)

  • 128.5 x 219 x 7.2mm

Thee are some powerful tablets with amazing screen resolutions. As we can see, they are mostly the same except for size and form-factor. One small (but important) difference is that the TabPRO 12.2 does have one more GB of RAM. With 3 GB of RAM, the TabPRO 12.2 should be the best option for those who appreciate good multi-tasking power and large displays.

I am more of an 8-inch screen kind of guy, so if I were to choose between one of these I would go for the 8.4-inch version. There is nothing like the portability of a 7-8 inch tablet. What would you buy?

We are not sure what the price on these bad boys will be just yet, but be sure we will try to get all the details while we are at CES! If you are interested, though, we do know these will be available globally starting Q1, 2014.

Stay tuned for more details! We have hands-on videos coming.

    I should go check my pants

  • user311

    Why no usb 3.0? I love having it on my note 3 . everything else definitely looks pro though.

  • ac

    I hope they haven’t scratch the 8 inch Note series, in favor of have the ProTab only.

  • Blatino

    I pray they make a Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 Google Play Edition. I wanna stay with Nexus or at least GPE… this is so tempting!

    • ari_free

      Multiwindow is the key feature. I wish Google had the foresight to built that into Android.

      • malcmilli

        no need for foresight, they could always add that in later.

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    Where are the T-Mobile and Nexus 10 2 announcements?

    • fourthletter

      Nothing to do with Samsung I would expect….

  • earth

    Will be interesting to seems if 12″ is niche or becomes mainstream. Even 10″ seems too much after using 7-8 for a while. I just bought the 2013 Sammy 10″ at Costco last weekend. Good thing it can be returned in 90 days.

  • JC

    Did they got rid of the menu button for the multitask ?

    • Matthew Merrick

      yes! =D

  • Gideon Waxfarb

    I would buy the 7″ version… too bad they didn’t release one :P I found the iPad Mini to be too wide to comfortably palm, and if you want a high-end something at 7″, you’re basically stuck with the Nexus 7, which is openly hostile to portrait-mode users, with its miles of top and bottom bezel.

    • Matthew Merrick

      well, this won’t be as wide as the ipad mini – 16:10 is much narrower than 4:3

  • C-Law

    Dat resolution. I thought that resolution was good for the 12″, I can’t believe it’s the same on the 8″ model

      i just realized that …

    I do NOT want hardware buttons on my tablets, so these are all out of the running in my mind. Still waiting for an 8.x” tablet a bit better than LG’s Gpad.

  • Crickerman

    The pro 12.2 looks good, I still use the note 10.1 2013 edition with lecturenotes, and I don’t even need a notebook for class anymore. I wish it had hdmi though because mhl has a slight delay :-/.

    I think the lte version will be better because of the performance issues the exynos version of the 2014 edition 10.1 had. (plus the free 200mb data per month with T-Mobile is an added bonus).

    I actually prefer the hardware keys because the onscreen buttons take up screen real estate.

  • nope

    Edgar! If you get the TabPRO 12.2 LTE, you can have 740 g’s! Thats 739.6 more than sprint!

  • Splaktar

    Where are the speakers?

  • Tony Lai

    Alright Price… $399, $499 and $599 for 8.4, 10.1 and 12.2?

    • Lactose_the_Intolerant

      That 12.2 is going to be north of $600.
