Samsung’s new Galaxy TabPro S is set to run Microsoft’s flagship operating system Windows 10, the company has confirmed.
The idea behind the move, according to the company, is to ensure that users can benefit from the features of a laptop and tablet device – both of which have proved integral in helping aid the growth of flexible and mobile working.
Outlining the features of the new model, Dongjin Ko, president and head of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, said: “Galaxy TabPro S balances the best of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab with the wealth of features on the Windows 10 operating system for the most advanced tablet experience on the market.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Microsoft Corp. to deliver a 2-in-1 tablet that truly allows people to enjoy productivity and connections that matter most, through a seamless mobile station designed for all purposes.”
Aimed at users both at home and in the office, the TabPro S is geared towards mobile working.
At 6.3 millimeters thick and with a weight of just 693 grams, the Galaxy TabPro S still contains a full-sized keyboard cover, included with the device, which helps to enhance usability.
A gamechanger for the market is arguably the feature of the first e2ver AMOLED display for Windows to enter the market, with a multitouch screen offering deeper colour contrasts while also showing 94 per cent of natural tones.
Perhaps one of the most impressive features of the new model is the fact that it retains plenty of power despite its size, boasting the latest generation Intel Core M processor, designed for a fanless 2-in-1 tablet, featuring only 4.5W of power consumption to eliminate noise disruption and maximise efficiency.
Samsung has confirmed that it is also the first Windows-powered tablet to support LTE Cat 6 while a fully charged Galaxy TabPro S’s battery provides up to 10.5 hours of battery life.
