One month ago at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Samsung officially announced its long-rumored 12-inch mega-tablets. Named the Galaxy Note Pro and the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2, the devices are 12.2-inch tablets with all of the features of Samsung’s smaller tablet lineup.
Today Samsung announced that the Note Pro and Tab Pro will be hitting the U.S. market on February 13. The tablets will be available from a variety of retailers, including Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Tiger direct, Newegg, and directly from the Samsung website.
Both the Note Pro and Tab Pro have 2560 x 1600 resolution LCD touch displays and have 3GB of memory. Both also comewith an 8MP rear camera, a 9.500mAh battery, and run Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s suite of software running over it. The Note Pro weighs a bit more than the Tab Pro and comes with Samsung’s S-Pen stylus. The Tab Pro is also available in smaller sizes – 10.1-inches and 8.4-inches.
Though both tablets are available in other countries with the option of LTE or 3G data, only the Wi-Fi versions will be sold in the U.S. The Note Pro with 32GB of storage will retail for $750 and a version with 64GB of storage will cost $850. The 12.2-inch Tab Pro with 32GB of storage will retail for $650.
“The Note Pro and Tab Pro create a more meaningful user experience at the intersection of work and play,” said Nanda Ramachandran, VP of emerging business at Samsung America. “With four completely revamped models featuring unique software innovations and impressive displays, these tablets offer users a premium Galaxy experience.”
