Samsung Galaxy TabPro S hits US, UK

Samsung Galaxy TabPro S

The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S has finally made its way to the US and UK, a few weeks after it began kicking around in Europe earlier this month. The hybrid tablet’s release comes roughly 2 months after it had made its first appearance at CES 2016.

Samsung has slapped the Galaxy TabPro S with a $899 price tag in the US and a £849 one in the UK. People living in either country can now purchase it from the brand’s official site. Interested buyers in the former nation also have the option to obtain it from Best Buy.

Furthermore, the 2-in-1 Samsung tablet is set to be sold via offline and online Microsoft stores in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico starting from April 4. The brand had previously announced that the slate will be available in India sometime in April or May this year. Its US cost translates to about Rs 59895.

A rapid look at the top specs of the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S:

– Display: 12-inch super AMOLED, 1440 x 2160 pixels
– OS: Windows 10 Home/Windows 10 Pro
– Memory: 128GB/256GB, non-expandable
– RAM: 4GB
– CPU: 2.2GHz dual-core Intel M
– Camera: 5MP AF rear, 5MP front
– Battery: 5200mAh
– Weight: 693g
– Connectivity: 4G, Wi-Fiac, Bluetooth, GLONASS, GPS, NFC

The Galaxy TabPro S is notably the first Galaxy-series model running Windows 10. It’s very similar to Microsoft’s own Surface Pro 4, its main competitor in addition to Apple’s iPad Pro. The South Korean firm claims that its tablet is lighter than the other 2 and offers a much superior battery life.

However, the Samsung device is less powerful than the Surface Pro 4 given its Intel Core M processor. Like the latter, the manufacturer is also throwing in a full-size keyboard as part of the package. A Bluetooth Pen and multi-port adapter for USB Type-A, HDMI and USB Type-C connectivity will be launched later this year.

Once again, US citizens can buy the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S at $899 via the company’s site, Best Buy and Microsoft. UK buyers can get it at £849 here.
