Samsung’s rumored four new tablets for early 2014 made an appearance this morning in the form of leaked press renders and a partial list of specs for each device. The full lineup features the expected Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 and Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, but swaps out the rumored 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 Lite for a super-sized Tab Pro 12.2 tablet. The news comes from trusted tipster @evleaks, who flooded the internet with leaks overnight.
On the larger end we have the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2, which appear to be identical based on a set of photos shared by @evleaks, and feature a new UI that ditches Samsung’s classic TouchWiz for a Windows 8-inspired live tile design, though you’ll likely be able to use a regular Android layout as well. Both devices come equipped with an Exynos 5 Octa (W-Fi/3G)or Snapdragon 800 (LTE) processor, a 12.2-inch WQXGA display, a 9500mAh battery, 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of onboard storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and run Android 4.4 KitKat.
The only noticeable difference between the two devices is the S Pen stylus included with the Note variant, though @evleaks tells us an incoming full specs sheet may reveal a greater gap between the tablets.
Next up is the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, which allegedly features identical specs to its 12-inch brothers, except for a smaller 8220mAh battery, 10.1-inch display, and lack of a built-in stylus. The Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, meanwhile, sports an even smaller 8.4-inch display, 4800mAh battery, and only comes in a Wi-Fi variant. Again, we may see those specs change slightly or learn more details in the near future as more information leaks.
With Samsung’s mobile division skipping CES 2014, we don’t expect to see any of the company’s new tablets unveiled this week in Las Vegas. Based on earlier reports, the South Korean electronics-maker could start unveiling its new line of Android slates later this month, meaning we may see them announced at a standalone event in the next few weeks or possibly in late February at Mobile World Congress.
