Samsung announces Galaxy Note PRO and Galaxy Tab PRO range at CES


Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro

Galaxy Note PRO and Galaxy Tab PRO tablet series introduced at CES 2014 by Samsung Electronics.

CES 2014 is in full swing, and there has been a tantalizing amount of new technology to get us in the mood, from new smart-watches to improved tech behind the wheel. There’s also been a dizzying amount of new tablets announced and we’re it’s officially only day one.

Of those new tablets is two new lines from Samsung; Galaxy Note PRO and Galaxy Tab PRO. We’ll start with the Galaxy Tab PRO, consumers will be able to pick up the slate in three different flavours 8.4 inch, 10.1 inch and a whopping 12.2 inch. All come rocking a crystal clear 2560 x 1600 resolution, old sammy is calling it “The world’s first 12.2-inch WQXGA Widescreen (16:10) display” Samsung love their world firsts and this is another one in an ever increasing portfolio of world-tech records.

Moving swiftly on to the Galaxy Note PRO which is only available in the 12.2 flavour and has the same eye pleasuring resolution of 2560 x 1600, only real difference except the size limitations is the NotePRO is compatible with the S-pen. All four of these new devices lend their design from the Note 3, with it’s faux-leather back and slim bezel and that’s definitely not a bad thing, love it or hate it, you can’t deny that the Note 3 is a handsome device considering it’s size, and although these tablets do lose a lot of the aesthetically pleasing qualities of the note 3, the more they get stretched out (12.2 inch being the ugly duckling) They still don’t look half bad.

Looks aside, the new selection of tablets will come pre-installed with a very customized version of Android 4.4 KitKat, with Samsung’s new Magazine UX user interface, which quite a few users who have had a hands on have remarked that it looks quite a lot like Windows 8.1. All of that software is being powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa processor in the WIFI model which is clocked at 1.9 GHz. The LTE version scores a  Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz Quad.

For those that already own and love their Samsung tablets, this is definitely something you’ll want to spend 2014 with, but for those users either on the sidelines, or loyal to another brand will this be enough to tempt you to buy into the Samsung family? Let us know in the comments and on twitter
