Samsung Electronics has introduced a new Gold version of the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S with improved hardware.
While Samsung’s clearing up on the Note 7 fiasco, they announced a revamped Galaxy TabPro S with twice the RAM and SSD, from 4GB to 8GB and 128GB to 256GB, respectively. It’s been out for less than a year, but Samsung decided to release a gold variant which they probably forgot when they first introduced the device nine months ago. All things come in gold these days, right?
Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is very much like its older self. The 12-inch Super AMOLED Full HD+ 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution touchscreen display dominates the front while a 6th generation 2.2GHz Intel M3 processor takes charge inside. There are 5-megapixel cameras in the front and back that support 4x digital zoom and Full HD video recording as well.
The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S 2 in 1 device measures 11.43 x 7.83 x 0.25mm all around. Just like its predecessor, it sports the same magnesium alloy body. It’s still as airy as before, weighing only 1.53 pounds sans the keyboard. And yes, a full-sized keyboard comes bundled with this device for maximum productivity. Since we people haven’t transitioned into using Type-C connectors just yet, there’s still support for one USB-A and HDMI port.
Samsung claims that the 5200mAh battery can be fully charged in as fast as 2.5 hours, which is pretty impressive. It can last for up to 10.5 hours on a single charge, more than enough for a typical work day.
Samsung Galaxy TabPro S runs on a full version of Windows 10 Home. For artists and creatives, there’s also support for pen input. The company says the consumers can opt to purchase the TabPro Pen to further boost functionality.
The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is now available in the US for $999.99 (~Php48,500) – $200 more than the previous model. It’s currently available in the Philippines for Php55,990, so this Gold version would probably come close to ~Php70,000.
