We already know that Samsung loves to offer us smartphones and tablets in just about every capacity, screen size and configuration possible, but this can make for some confused consumers. To make a clearer distinction between entry-level models and higher-end models, it looks like Samsung will be releasing Pro and Lite versions of its tablets next year.

This will follow up on existing products like the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) that we reviewed earlier this week. There will be a larger Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 (SM-P900/P905) with a 12.2-inch display, possibly to compete against the rumored 12.9-inch iPad Pro from Apple. This is quite different than how Dell is using the “Pro” name in its lineup; Dell designates Pro devices to be Windows, whereas the non-Pro devices are Android. In Samsung’s case, it should be all Android-based. The Note Pro 12.2 is expected to launch in early February.

Also a part of the “Pro” series will be the 8.4-inch Galaxy Tab Pro (SM-T320/T325) and the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab Pro (SM-T520/T525). All of the pro tablets will be offered in WiFi-only and cellular (LTE) variants (hence the dual model numbers), coming with at least 16GB of internal storage. In the case of the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, there should be a 32GB option as well. You can expect both the 8.4-inch and 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab Pro tablets to launch in February as well.

And finally, bringing up the rear is a “Lite” version of the Galaxy Tab 3. Appropriately dubbed the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite (SM-T110/T-111), the affordable tablet will come in WiFi or 3G with prices starting at under 100 (around $136). It’ll be the first to arrive, according to the leaked reports, hitting shelves in the second week of January.
