Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 confirmed 'unofficially' ahead of Samsung CES press event [Update]
Update: Samsung has now held its press conference and officially spilled the rest of the already massively leaked details surrounding the Galaxy TabPro 10.1. Click here for more details!
The Galaxy TabPro hasn’t exactly been the best kept secret in the mobile world. We’ve been hearing about Samsung’s pro series of tablets for over a month now, and today we’ve not only seen a billboard confirming the Tab Pro name but we even saw leaked specs from @evleaks. And now ahead of their press conference, Samsung jumped the gun and released information about their device to their own website. The listing has since been removed but the damage is already done.
As expected, the Galaxy Tab Pro features a 10.1-inch Super Clear LCD with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and either a 1.9GHz Exynos OctaCPU for Wi-Fi/3G markets, or a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 for the LTE version.
Other specs for the tablet include 2GB of RAM, an 8MP rear cam, 2MP front cam, 16 or 32GB storage with microSD for expansion, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS + GLONASS, an IR blaster and a 8220 mAh battery. Not surprisingly, there’s also Android 4.4 KitKat right out of the box.
Previously we heard rumors suggesting that Samsung would be changing up the look of Touchwiz, at least on the Pro series. It looks like this change might really be happening, but we’ll have to wait until Samsung’s press conference for more details on that.
Pricing and availability
As for when we’ll see the Galaxy TabPro? Although we don’t have an official timeframe or price just yet, the rumor mill suggests it will arrive in black and white colors in the coming weeks.
Samsung’s official press event is later this afternoon, so we’ll be sure to update with additional details then. As always, stayed tuned to Android Authority’s CES 2014 coverage, where we’ll be sure to have more news related to the Galaxy TabPro and many other upcoming Samsung announcements!
