Back at CES 2014 Samsung revealed four new Android tablets with high-end features, two of them having a 12.2-inch display with an impressive resolution of 2,560X1,600 pixels. Now, the 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro, as well as the 10.1-inch and 8.4-inch Galaxy Tab Pro are finally headed to the US.
According to the official press release, "The new tablet lineup features premium materials, a suite of applications and services, unparalleled displays, a unique interface designed to simplify access and discovery of content, and many new productivity tools."
Their main specs include quad-core Snapdragon 800 or octa-core Exynos 5 processors, 3 GB of internal memory and up to 64 GB of internal storage, 8.4-inch to 12.2-inch displays and will be available in black or white. Samsung claims its new large screen slates are "the world’s first 12.2-inch tablets with high-resolution WQXGA (2560 x 1600) Super Clear LCDs and widescreen aspect ratios of 16:10, with more than 4 million pixels."
Prices start at $399.99 for the 16 GB Tab Pro 8.4 and go up to $849.99 for the 64 GB Note Pro 12.2 (the 32 GB version sells for $749.99). Pre-orders can be already placed at Samsung.com, Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, Tiger Direct, PC Richard and Sons, Fry’s, and Newegg, with availability in retail stores set for February 13.
