Look what we have here, the highly rumored Samsung Galaxy NotePRO. We’ve known for sometime that it’s coming, thanks to all the leaks and rumors surfacing on the internet. They became more evident after the product banner appeared before the Samsung event outside CES 2014.
Well, Samsung has finally taken the wraps off its Samsung Galaxy NotePRO tablet, which comes with a gigantic 12.2-inch WQXGA Super Clear LCD display sporting a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels and Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed out of the box.
“We created the Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO series to kick-off a year in which Samsung truly establishes its leadership in the tablet market,” said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics. “This new line offers the best-in-class content consumption and productivity, combining a stunning viewing experience with Samsung’s design legacy. The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO truly demonstrate our commitment to providing our customers with extraordinarily versatile product offerings, tailored to tablet users of every description.”
The tablet comes in two versions: WiFi and Cellular ones. The WiFi and 3G-enabled tablets are powered by a Exynos 5 Octa (1.9 GHz QuadCore ＋ 1.3 GHz Quadcore), while the LTE model comes with Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.3GHz.
Samsung Galaxy NotePRO comes with 3GB of RAM, 32/64GB storage options with microSD card support of up to 64GB. On the rear, it comes with an 8MP camera for photos and videos as well as a 2MP front-facing camera for Skype and other video calling applications. To make sure there’s enough power for the gigantic tablet is a massive 9,500 mAh battery.
Despite of running Android 4.4 KitKat, it comes with a totally different UI dubbed as Magazine UX (as well as the TouchWiz), which “allows users to further tailor their Galaxy tablet experience for their own needs. The UX enables them to organize their favorite content in an easy-to-use dashboard with automatic feed or news updates and then quickly access the most frequently used apps for a more comfortable reading experience.”
There’s no word about the pricing, but the tablet will hit global markets in the first quarter of 2014.
