Samsung Galaxy TabPro S: Samsung Trying To Beat Microsoft Surface Pro 4 With Windows 10, 2-In-1 Tablet?
By coming up with a 2-in-1 Windows 10 tablet, is Samsung trying to compete with Microsoft Surface Pro 4? Currently, you do not have many options in the Windows 10 tablet section. There are a few brands running the latest OS from Microsoft on their convertibles, but not many know about them. The only popular Windows 10 convertible today is Surface Pro 4.Advertisement
Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is a 12-inch tablet with Super AMOLED display. It is just 0.25 inches thick and weighs only 1.53 pounds. If you are a keyboard person, this tablet offers you a keyboard as well. But if the report published on the PCWorld is to be believed, the keyboard of Galaxy TabPro S isn’t up to the mark. “In my limited hands-on time with the device, I found my fingers regularly mashed two keys at once because of its layout, and the limited key travel made it feel cheap,” wrote Blair Hanley Frank in the post.
This 2-in-1 device hints at Samsung’s struggle to make something better than iPad Pro and Surface Pro 4. Hence, it is slimmer and lighter than both the latter devices. It is difficult to have a convertible that thin that can run Windows and work with an Intel chip inside. In such a thin body, Samsung Galaxy TabPro S has also been packed with an 900MHz Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor and 4GB internal memory. If Samsung has managed to do an excellent job with TabPro S, only time will tell. These specs in such a thin body should not lead to overheating and reboot issues.
Is Samsung Galaxy ProTab S better than Surface Pro 4? The war has just begun, so keep watching this update for more stories. As more details come in, we will get to know who wins the battle.
