The heavily rumoured Samsung Galaxy NotePRO has been officially unveiled at CES 2014, with the new stylus-hosting tablet packing a massive 12.2-inch display.
Targeting the high-end business user, the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO sees the 12.2-inch form factor paired with a stunning 2560 x 1600 pixel Full HD display, Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat OS and an all new, and more immersive, Magazine UX.
"At Samsung we intend to set the new rules for tablet this year,” Min Cho, Samsung’s Director of Product Marketing said in showcasing the new Note offering. He added: “More and more consumers want the ‘empowered productivity’ in one device.
“In this new premium tablet category we are going to provide the ultimate viewing experience.”
Samsung Galaxy NotePRO Features
A high-end device that further marks the demise of the laptop and the rise of the multi-purpose tablet, the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO pairs a stunning display for premium multimedia consumption with a range of business-centric software advancements.
With the new Magazine UX appearing as something of a mash-up between Android and Windows 8, the KitKat overlay is bolstered by a high-end hardware collection that includes a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor.
Although boasting an expansive 12.2-inch WQXGA display with a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution, the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO lines up at just 7.95mm thick. Despite Samsung’s trademark, and not particularly pleasing plastic design principles, however, the tablet still weighs a considerable 750g.
With an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera partnered with a second, 2-megapixel snapper up front, the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO specs sheet is rounded off by 3GB of RAM, Samsung’s S Pen stylus, a massive 9500mAh Lithium-Ion battery and the option of Wi-Fi only or 3G/LTE connectivity options.
Offering a range of features for business users, the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO adds the likes of remote PC access and a full collection of word processing and spreadsheet creating applications into the mix.
Samsung Galaxy NotePRO Release Date and Price
Despite Samsung having formally unveiled its new tablet offerings, the Korean manufacturer has remained particularly cagey around when it expects the new model to land. While failing to confirm an exact Samsung Galaxy NotePRO release date, the company has stated the tablet should start a global rollout later in Q1.
Similarly, there is currently no word on an official Samsung Galaxy NotePRO price, although expect the device to set you back a considerable sum.
