Is Samsung working on a powerhouse Galaxy Tab S Pro tablet?

Like most tech manufacturers, Samsung keeps its upcoming products under tight wraps, so we have to rely on oft-spurious leaks to whet our tech appetites.

Fortunately, this latest leak comes straight from the horse’s mouth itself, and seemingly points to a powerhouse tablet being in the works at Samsung HQ.

The company has trademarked a mystery device called the “Tab S Pro”, which currently doesn’t exist in Samsung’s product line-up.

The trademark – which was first spotted by GalaxyClub – could, of course, just be an example of a company stopping competitors from nicking its name.

However, it could also be the first sign that Samsung wants to build a new flagship tablet to take on the much-rumoured (but still unreleased) Apple iPad Pro.

Samsung unveiled its latest Galaxy Tab S device in June last year, although all has been quiet on the high-end tablet from since then.

A Tab S2 successor device was rumoured to launch last month, but that didn’t go ahead for some reason.

Unfortunately, as this latest leak is just a trademark, we can’t actually ascertain what specs or features might be in tow for a ‘Pro’ spin-off tablet.

Educated guesswork would suggest we’ll see a bigger screen, as is generally the case with ‘Pro’ devices, and likely flagship-grade specs to match – a Samsung-built Exynos 7420 chip, perhaps?
