Samsung’s New Tab Pro and Note Pro Tablets Hit The U.S. Market

Samsung’s latest batch of tablets, first unveiled last month at CES 2014, are now available to purchase here in the U.S. The company’s new lineup of “Pro” Android slates range from 8.4 to 12.2-inches and running the South Korean tech titan’s new Magazine UX software.

On the low end, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 starts at $399.99. It comes equipped with an 8.4-inch 2560 x 1600-pixel LCD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, a 4800 mAh battery, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with microSD support and runs Android 4.4 KitKat with the company’s own custom UI on top. Meanwhile, the Tab Pro 10.1 offers similar specs, but with a larger screen and a 8220mAh battery; it starts at $499.99.

If you’re looking for the biggest tablet available, however, you’ll want to grab the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. This massive new tablet comes equipped with a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, a 2560 x 1600-pixel 12.2-inch display, a 9500mAh battery, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 3GB of RAM, and runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s Magazine UX software on top. It starts at $749.99 for 32GB of onboard storage or $849.99 for 64GB.

Samsung’s newest tablets definitely offer some of the best specs on the market, but we’re not crazy about the company’s new Magazine UX—especially compared to vanilla Android. Take a good look at the new software and maybe even try it out for yourself at a brick-and-mortar store before you make a purchase.
