Samsung may have originally announced its TabPro S Windows tablet 7 months ago but it is giving it a new life with an even powerful new gold-colored variant. Why? Because everything is better in gold.
There are a few changes in terms of hardware too. The processor remains the same Intel Core M3-6Y30 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz. The amount of RAM is twice as much as before though, at 8 GB, while the storage has been boosted with a 256 GB SSD too.
The display on the front remains a 12-inch AMOLED panel with 2160 x 1440 resolution. For connectivity you get USB Type C, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. There are a couple of 5 MP cameras on the front and back, while battery capacity is set at 5200 mAh which is said to last over 10 hours of video playback.
The design isn’t off-putting either, being just 0.2-inch thick,it weighs just 1.5 pounds. The TabPro S is available in other more mainstream colours as well but as stated earlier, only the Gold Edition comes with increased RAM and storage.
Pricing is set at $999.99, which is $200 more than the original model. However, for the same price you can get either a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 (a weaker version is what you’ll get, though), HP’s Spectre x360 and even several of Lenovo’s Yoga models, including the 900 and 900S.
To choose the TabPro S you have to be a fan of that display or the Samsung brand (And of course, that it comes in gold helps too), otherwise both the hybrid and the laptop markets are particularly ripe right now.
