LG are holding their CES 2014 Press Event as I type this but of course, Samsung being Samsung they couldn’t let LG hog all the limelight and as such, official info of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Pro has leaked out ahead of their event schedule for later on. As discovered by GSMArena Samsung’s official page has now been taken down, which suggests a controlled leak of some sort or, perhaps just another mistake. Either way, we now know what’s going to be inside of Samsung’s Pro ten-incher. The leak from earlier on that details the specs for many of these Galaxy Tab Pro devices has seemingly turned out to be true.
The Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 will feature either a Snapdragon 800 or an Exynos 5 Octa, a selection of 16 or 32 GB of storage. As you might expect, the Exynos and Snapdragon variants suggest WiFi and LTE versions of the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. The 10.1-inch display at play here features an incredible 2560 x 1600 display and features a similar design to the Galaxy Note 10.1 – 2014 Edition that we reviewed last year. This new Pro line looks to be just one part of the onslaught that Samsung is about to unleash onto the Android tablet market.
With an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, it seems that Samsung isn’t upping the game too much when it comes to the cameras here but, the Tab 10.1 Pro will be able to record 1080p video, which should be good enough for the majority of people. Unlike the Galaxy Note 12.2 Pro or the Galaxy Note 10.1 – 2014 Edition however, there isn’t an S-Pen included, which as such could reduce the general appeal of the Tab 10.1 Pro to most consumers, and it’s always more than likely going to be priced higher than similarly-sized devices. However, if Samsung is going for more choice on the market, then they’re certainly going to have achieved that.
