Galaxy TabPro S - Samsung Returns to Windows Tablets Dylan Duarte January 6, 2016 News, Press Release Another year, another 2-in-1 tablet/laptop from Microsoft, again optimized for productivity and the best in mobility. Only this time, it's from Samsung. The Galaxy TabPro S gives users full notebook PC functionality in a lightweight tablet for what Samsung calles "the most productive mobile experience." Not only is the Galaxy TabPro S a mix between a laptop and a tablet, aesthetically it's a mix between Microsoft's Surface line and Samsung's Galaxy line of tablets. It's lighter and thinner than the Surface Pro 4, but if you want all of the ports, you'll have to purchase an optional port hub. The only port you'll find on the laptop itself is the increasingly popular (with developers, at least) USB Type-C. Samsung Galaxy Phone owners can sync their phones up with the tablet, and use the phone's authentication scanners to unlock the laptop, giving an extra level of security. The 12-inch screen has a 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution and uses Samsung's Super AMOLED display, giving it the same vibrant colors as Samsung's AMOLED phones. Powering that screen (and the rest of the device) is a Dual Core 2.2GHz Intel Core M processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 5,200mAh battery. The Galaxy TabPro S will be available starting in February 2016.
