During Samsung’s pre-CES 2016 press conference, the company has showcased its Galaxy TabPro S tablet. This tablet is a pretty powerful device and we’re pretty sure that many will be surprised because it is not powered by Android and instead it runs on Windows 10. However, let’s not forget that Samsung and Microsoft signed a partnership and this was somehow expected.
It seems that the tablet is able to run full versions of either Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Home editions, but will the tablet beat Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4?
The new Galaxy TabPro S tablet measures 290.3×198.8×6.3mm and weights about 784 grams. On the other hand, the Surface Pro 4 measures 292.1×201.4×8.4mm and weights 786 grams.
As you can see, the Galaxy TabPro S is slimmer and weights less than the Surface Pro 4.
The new Galaxy TabPro S comes with a 12-inch Super AMOLED display that supports a resolution of 2160×1440 pixels. According to Samsung, this is the first tablet that runs on Windows 10 OS and features a Super AMOLED display, a technology that has been available for the Galaxy tablets and smartphones over the past few years.
The Surface Pro 4 comes with a 12.3-inch PixelSense display that features a higher resolution of 2736×1824 pixels.
CPU, Storage and RAM
The Galaxy TabPro S is powered by a sixth-generation dual-core Intel Core M3-6Y30 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, which is backed by 4GB of RAM. When it comes to storage, the device comes with either 128GB or 256GB SSD of storage.
The Surface Pro 4 comes in three processor variants, and the customers will be able to choose between the M3, i5 or i7 processors. The tablet also comes with three variants of RAM with capacities of 4GB, 8GB or 16GB, and three four storage options of 128GB, 256GB 512GB or 1TB.
The Galaxy TabPro S tablet is powered by a powerful battery of 5200 mAh which, according to Samsung, is able to keep the device “alive” for 10.5 hours of usage. The battery can be charged in about 2.5 hours via the USB Type-C port that the tablet comes with. On the other hand, the Surface Pro 4’s battery is capable of offering 9 hours of usage.
The Galaxy TabPro S comes with a primary camera and a secondary camera of 5MP. The primary camera is found on the rear side of the tablet and supports autofocus.
On the back side of the Surface Pro 4 we will find a more powerful primary camera of 8MP which also supports autofocus, while the secondary camera is 5MP and it’s found on the front side of the device.
If you will purchase the Galaxy TabPro S, you will also receive a keyboard case that connects to your tablet via its magnetic rear. This is a plus for the new Galaxy TabPro S tablet, as the keyboard for the Surface Pro 4 is sold separately.
