Samsung's TabPro S puts Windows 10 on an ultra-thin canvas


— 1:59 AM on January 6, 2016

There's a new Windows 10 device on the market that's meant to provide all the functionality of a laptop in a tablet form factor, but no, it's not a new Surface. Microsoft and Samsung have collaborated to create the Galaxy TabPro S, a 12" tablet that runs either Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Professional. 

A device aimed at productivity needs a good keyboard. The keyboard for the Galaxy TabPro S isn't an optional add-on. Unlike many other tablets, this one's keyboard is included with the device. It attaches to the tablet much like a common cover, but its hinge allows the user to adjust the angle of the display for the best viewing angle. Even better, the keyboard and tablet don't need to be charged separately.

For the TabPro S' display, Samsung uses a 12" Super AMOLED 2160x1440 multitouch display. A big, bright screen can easily drain a battery, so the TabPro S has a 5,200 mAh battery. Samsung claims that the device offers about 10 hours of battery life.

The TabPro S is powered by a 4.5W Intel Core M processor and 4 GB of RAM. For storage, the device comes with a 128GB or 256GB SSD. The TabPro S also supports Cat 6 LTE for fast cellular data connections. At 6.3 mm thick, this slate is just a hair thicker than an iPad Air 2. The Galaxy TabPro S will be available beginning in February, but Samsung has not yet released pricing information.
