This large premium slate with LTE connectivity and high-end specs gets updated to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop in North European countries, but the rest of the world should get it soon as well.

Back at launch, Samsung Galaxy TabPro 12.2 was the largest and most powerful Android slate of the South Korean company. Now this slate is more than 18 months old, but its hardware is still more than capable to run the latest Android version without taking any performance hits. The TabPro 12.2 launched loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat, and now it started to receive a firmware update based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

According to SamMobile, Samsung Galaxy TabPro 12.2 LTE (SM-T905) now has a new firmware update with September 2 as build date, but only users in the North European countries got it so far. Obviously, this is only true for the OTA update method, as anxious users can easily download the firmware file and install the update manually. Anyway, it is only a matter of time until the update rolls out globally.

Samsung Galaxy TabPro 12.2 LTE has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC under the hood, 3 GB of memory, 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage, as well as microSD support, a full range of connectivity options, and a generous 9500 mAh battery. Its 12.2-inch multitouch display has 2560X1600 pixels while its primary camera offers 8 MP, LED flash, and autofocus.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
