Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Tab Pro 12.2, Tab Pro 10.1, Tab Pro 8.4 specs leaked, press image also available [Update]

January 6, 2014

Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4

[Update:] Purported press images of the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 and Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 have also been leaked (see below).

Samsung is yet to make its CES 2014 announcements, and we already know the Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro models that have been spotted in so many rumors so far are real. Furthermore, thanks to a leaker, we now have specs for four Pro models, as well as a press image for one of these Pro tablets.

@evleaks has more details on the specs of the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2, Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 and Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, as well as a picture for the last one. As always, this information can’t be confirmed at this time, but the source has been accurate with previous mobile-related leaks.

As you can see in the image above, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 seems to borrow some design lines from the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 (2014 edition) – we’re still looking at a faux leather back with fake stitching. However, unlike last year’s Galaxy Note 8 tablet (also an 8-inch tablet,) the Tab Pro 8.4 has smaller bezels. Also interesting is the fact that Samsung has apparently decided to replace the menu button, as one reddit user noticed.

That said, let’s check out the rumored specs of the four Pro tablets:

  • Rick jaan

    if 8.4 specs r true
    those who bought tab 8 ll regret there decision

    • Guest

      Do you mean tab 3 8.0??

      • Austin Li

        I think he means the galaxy tab pro 8.4

    • Austin Li

      the specs for the tab pro 8.4 are pretty good already

  • janlancer

    Still no new note 8.1?

  • Bone

    I like the 8.4 Pro specs. I don’t mind a large tab, but ~8″ is the ideal all around screen size, and specs are up to date (although I’d love the S-Pen support for it).

    On a 2nd thought though, I doubt the 8.4″ will have a 2K screen or all tabs high-end specs… I sure hope so though…

    • TjaldidTjaldid

      I’m just wondering if the battery will hold out

    • Jusephe

      Yes it will have such high resolution screen.. But don’t get too excited samsung will price these “pro” tablets sky high for sure.

    • najiy91

      i agree tablet should size 7″-8″ only.

      • Jaun Lombard

        That is why they make 10.1 and 12.2, because I want (or I own a tab 3 10.1) 10″ tablet. They cater for every need!

    • OneOfOne

      not if you like magazines and movies

  • TjaldidTjaldid

    So…. They made two tablets… at the same size…. with the same specs… with the only thing difference being the pen

    • Shark Bait

      I was about to post this too, seems mad!! It would be a good idea to just concentrate on the note line, if people don’t like the pen, let them turn it off. I suppose samsung things its done well flooding the market with as many models as possible so why stop!

    • wat

      To add the Wacom digitizer and a pen is probably somewhere between $30 and $50 at a guess. Anyone who doesn’t want it would like to save that and Samsung know they need to hit minimum price while maintaining some profit.

      • TjaldidTjaldid

        or then just have it as an optional purchase, buy the pen if you want it other wise don’t but it’s still support it.

    • Jaun Lombard

      Because..if they had only one…the one with the Stylus…a competitor like LG can make the same device without the Stylus and sell it for cheaper….thus Samsung made sure that they dont loose that client who wants the cheaper 12.2 inch Tab without the Stylus!

      • JazzoRenee

        Plus these cry babies would complain if there was only on option.

  • Shark Bait

    Why a physical clicky button?? its 2014 now Sammy!!!!

    • Jaun Lombard

      I like my buttons on my Tab 3…it makes it easier to use! to exit a program and to put the screen on! plus got so used to my galaxy phone’s button, its nice to know that my Tab works the same.

      I am more curious about the new soft touch app drawer button which replaced the menu button!

      • Shark Bait

        I just find it ruins the clean look of devices.
        Surely rece t apps will be more useful than menu since most apps have a menu button in them anyway ?

    • Marcus

      If they’re going to include buttons, they should include them for *both orientations* (with the ones not appropriate to the current orientation locked out to avoid accidental touches). If I want a device that is hardware-designed to only be used one way, I hear tell they have this thingamabob called a “laptop”.

    • deepen915

      so what? I have an S4. and that physical button is one thing I actually love compared to other Android phones.. It also makes the Apple users feel familiar if they switch to Samsung devices.

      • Shark Bait

        but on a tablet it limits you to one orientation much more than on a phone

  • Jusephe

    So we got 4 almost identical tablets in different sizes, with downright puny batteries, the same pen-tile screen as the note1012014 to rush for ppi (and marketing purposes obviously).
    And how high will samsung price these “pro” ones ? Very high, I personally expect that they will match maybe even exceed iPad pricing like the
    note 1012014.

    That’s why I hate samsung.

    • Jaun Lombard

      But they are still the best tablets to date…after the IPad Air…

      • vespa5

        After trying out so many Sammy tablets, I’ll stick with my Galaxy S4 phone, but I don’t think I’ll ever buy another Sammy tablet unless it’s the new Nexus 10. Probably the only Sammy tablet I ever used that was quite the performer was the Nexus 10 (2012)

    • Carlos Poblano

      Don’t seem like puny batteries to me…but yeah those displays are gonna drain them petty quickly.

      • filaos

        4800mah in the 8.4″, when a Retina ipad Mini features a 6500mah one with lower resolution AND less hungry processor.
        This one at least has under-speced battery.

        • Maxim∑

          the A7 is less power hungry it has a 6,471 mah battery much larger than the note 8.4 and is 7.9in smaller than the Note 8.4 with about the same pixel density.

          If your comparing the 1st gen mini to a product thats not even released? its already proven itself to have good battery life and same with the 2nd gen around 10-11hr average screen on

          edit: read your comment wrong sorry…

    • Austin Li

      the batteries are huge!! the galaxy tab pro and note pro 12.2 have massive 9500 mAh batteries with a 8220 mAh battery for the tab pro 10.1 like the iPad’s batteries. 4800 is a very good size for an 8.4 inch tablet already because of the smaller size. and the displays are awesome with great processors

  • Jacob Markussen

    On-Screen-Buttons Samsung, come on!

    • deepen915

      so?

  • John-Phillip Saayman

    That menu button looks strange.. Almost I think the same as the ‘recent apps’ button

  • John-Phillip Saayman

    The 8.4 one looks really nice.

    • MadCowOnAStick

      all but the battery lol

  • Jaun Lombard

    Wow people are complaining a lot about Samsung! First people wanted more choice in the Tablet market…thus Samsung answered…then they complained that the tables are not high end enough…thus Samsung answered…now people are complaining because Samsung answered their prayers…really people?

    • JazzoRenee

      You know complainers can never be satisfied.

  • vespa5

    Oh gosh. My experience with AMOLED screens are that they’re either too green or overly saturated when it comes to color definition. And after holding onto that $500+ piece of plastic called the Galaxy Tab 10.1 2014, good grief, I think my tenure with Samsung tablets is over. The Nexus 10 (2012) was probably the best Samsung tablet ever released IMO. I don’t think I can stomach another $500+ of flimsy plasticky builds in another 10.1 or 12.2 inch tablet.

    • Jaun Lombard

      But the tablets are not AMOLED…thus not a forum to debate same…

    • OneOfOne

      what a whining douche. you act like they are frisbees. go buy another over priced ipad and watch jobs on it while youre crying douche

  • mustbepbs

    I wonder if they’re going to make a successor to the Note 8?

  • M3D1T8R

    It is 2014 and Samsung still refuses to fix their obsolete circa 2011 buttons. I guess they’ve achieved their goal of being just like Apple, stubbornly holding onto a clear design flaw rather than losing face and correcting their mistake which would be admitting they weren’t right all along. So it’s going to be at least yet another year until I can even possibly consider another Samsung device. Not that I expected anything different from them.

    • anon

      I still don’t understand why on-screen buttons are any better than physical capacitive buttons. The ONLY remote reason they are better is that depending on ROM, they can be changed to a user’s preference, but that’s not always the case (Motorola X). Otherwise, what’s wrong with the basic Menu, Home and Back? They’re used 90% of the time and physical buttons allow more of the screen to be used for actual screen space. Less important on a tablet but on a phone it can definitely feel like it affects the screen size.

      • M3D1T8R

        If they would just get rid of the awkwad physical home button, like most manufacturers did years ago, that would be a huge improvement. But they also don’t even have the right buttons (obsolete menu button still instead of recent apps), _and_ they are in the wrong order. That’s all in addition to them not being on screen. (On screen is nice but is actually to me the least important of these four issues.) So going from any standard Android device since 2011 to a Samsung device is always a pain.

        • anon

          I’ll agree that I think the home button should be capacitive as well. As to the “right buttons” that’s really preference, and again, in devices with on-screen buttons can’t be changed either. For example, I definitely prefer my back button on the right side, it’s the button I use the most, so I want it to be the closest to my right thumb. I disagree that the menu button is obsolete, although UI’s are using the “three dots” or a left hand pull-out pane, it’s still not consistent and I feel that it’s easier to reach a left capacitive button than to hunt down the menu, wherever it may be for that particular app. Personally, my vote is to go to 3 or 4 capacitive buttons that can always be customized by the user. Make them shapes instead of action based and let the user decide. Capacitive buttons also allow the possibility for things like swipe to wake features that can give people more options on how to turn on their device. My point is, I see very little advantages to on-screen buttons, especially if not implemented correctly, and I simply don’t understand this crusade against capacitive buttons.

        • Austin Li

          they do have the recent apps button now. they replaced the menu button on the pro tablets. and i think physical buttons are better since you don’t have to press the power button when you want to turn it on

    • Peter

      As far as I know, none of Samsung’s tablets had hardware buttons until 2013. Not a matter of being stubborn in that case.

      I’m not a fan of the physical home button myself because it’s one more hole in the screen for moisture/dirt to get through But I like the off-screen capacitive buttons because I don’t want screen space taken up, and if they are minimized it takes two taps to go home rather than one.

  • MrDestreza

    The difference from the Galaxy note 10.1 2014 and the galaxy tabPro 10.1 2014 is only the Spen?

    • Ki EuKiTo

      Well, the S Pen adds so much, that it practically makes it a completely different device. The Tab line may be nice, but aside from Samsung’s particular styling, it’s really no different than many other Android tablets. The Galaxy Note line is worlds different & can only be truly appreciated, if you’ve ever seriously used something like a Wacom Cintiq.

  • Anthony Snyder

    I don’t understand Samsung’s naming schemes. I’m sure the devices are okay.. not sure they did much testing though. There’s a reason they were unveiled at CES instead of their own press event.

  • Ki EuKiTo

    What I want to know is where is my 8.4″ Galaxy Note Pro?! I have the current Galaxy Note 8 & I prefer that size by far for sketching on the go. But I want that 1600 resolution!

  • Android

    i’m getting confused with Samsung tablet line, seeing Tab Pro 8.4 is what Samsung should have done with last year Note 8.0

  • http://www.spec-india.com/ SPEC INDIA

    it’s really very great information you shared… keep writing like this!!

  • JazzoRenee

    I only wished the 8.4 had 3GB of RAM.

  • irrational010

    I dont see why I should choose this^^ over asus tf701t, asus has real 2560×1600 rgb display (igzo tech, same as iphone 5s), while samsung has a crappy pen tile display, anyone wishing the best viewing experience should definately choose asus.
