At CES 2016, Samsung has unveiled their latest Galaxy tablet, and this one isn't running Android. Instead, Samsung has loaded up the 12-inch Galaxy TabPro S with Windows 10, marking the company's return to the world of Windows tablets.
The Galaxy TabPro S is essentially Samsung's rival to the Microsoft Surface. The tablet may be thinner and feature less ports than the Surface Pro 4, but it does support a detachable keyboard cover with trackpad. Overall, the tablet and keyboard combination is extremely thin and light, making it a decent option for taking with you on the go.
Considering its slim, fanless design, it's no surprise to see Samsung use an Intel Core M processor at 2.2 GHz (possibly the Core m3-6Y30) to power this tablet. You also get 4 GB of RAM, either 128 or 256 GB of SSD storage, 5-megapixel cameras on the front and back, the usual array of connectivity features, and a 5,200 mAh battery.
On the front is a 12-inch 2160 x 1440 Super AMOLED display, which gives the tablet a 3:2 aspect ratio that's becoming increasingly popular for tablets. There's also a single USB Type-C port on the tablet's body, which can be connected to an optional multi-port adapter to deliver HDMI and USB Type-A. Users can also purchase a Bluetooth pen for drawing on the display.
Samsung says the TabPro S will launch in February, although there's no word on pricing. Like other devices of this kind, the keyboard is sold separately, and we expect it won't come cheap.
