Samsung already makes a respectable number of tablets (read huge) but doesn't seem about to slow down. The Korean company announced four new Android tablets at its press conference at CES 2014 – the NotePRO 12.2, the TabPRO 12.2, the TabPRO 10.1, and the TabPRO 8.4.
The new tablets are all remarkably similar when it comes to stats and are mostly set apart by their screen size and the NotePRO's compatibility with an S Pen. They all feature 2560 x 1600 resolution displays, 2 GB of RAM (3 GB for the 12.2-inch models), Android 4.4 KitKat, an 8 MP main camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac wifi, a microSD slot (up to 64 GB cards), Bluetooth 4.0, and optional 3G or LTE.
With the exception of the TabPRO 8.4 which has a Snapdragon 800 regardless of wireless options, wifi and 3G models are powered by a 1.9 GHz quad-core ＋ 1.3 GHz quad-core Exynos 5 Octa processors, while LTE models have a 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800, .
All of the new tablets will ship with a free software bundle valued at US$700 which includes 50 GB free storage for 2 years from Dropbox, 6 months of Cisco WebEx Meetings, 12 weeks of the NY Times, and 2 years of Remote PC.
The NotePro and TabPRO tablets are set to launch worldwide in Q1 of 2014. Prices have not yet been announced.
