The last time we heard about Samsung’s army of new slates from the Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro series, we were given their specs and other details. This time, Samsung has announced how much each will debut in the market. Before we get into that though, here is a briefer to refresh your memory.
Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro series: Out now
At the last CES, Samsung announced and showed off their new Pro series, basically two lines of tablets with premium specs and features. Take the smallest model of the group, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4.
Samsung managed to cram a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution on the 8.4-inch LCD screen. It packs a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor with 2 GB of RAM and 16 and 32 GB storage options.
The next model in the line is the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, a slate that’s reminiscent of the Note 10.1 2014 Edition but doesn’t have the S Pen and its bundled in apps built in. It has the same 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution screen as the 8.4, but will come in two variants. The WiFi-only model will come with the Samsung Exynos 5 octa-core processor while the 4G LTE version will have the same 2.3 GHz Snapdragon processor as the 8.4.
There are two 12.2-inch options in the new Pro series, namely the Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro 12.2. Everything is basically identical to the smaller versions – i.e. the bigger screen real estate will feature the same screen resolution and the same WiFi-only and 4G LTE model specs. The only real difference between the two 12.2-inch models is the S Pen accessory in the Note Pro model.
Pricing and Availability
As you may have probably surmised from the specs, these Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro models won’t come cheap. After all, premium specs do come at a price – in this case, a very high price. Here’s the breakdown:
Note Pro 12.2: $ 749.99 (32 GB), $ 849.99 (64 GB)
Tab Pro 12.2: $ 649.99 (32 GB)
Tab Pro 10.1: $ 499.99 (16 GB)
Tab Pro 8.4: $ 399.99 (16 GB)
They do cost a pretty penny, don’t they? Still though, they’re probably some of the better Android options out there, that is, if you’re willing to shell out the money for them.
