Galaxy TabPro S is a premium 2-in-1 Samsung device featuring maximum portability, but no Android

Samsung has revealed a new premium tablet device powered not by Android, but instead by Windows 10.

Targeted at workers on the go thanks to its lightweight build and long-lasting battery life, the Galaxy TabPro S is a 2-in-1 device that can act either as a notebook thanks to an included keyboard cover or detach to operate as a standard tablet would.

And the device, which features a 12in 2160×1440 Super AMOLED display and measures just 6.3mm across, will be available from next month, although there’s no news on a UK price tag just yet.

As for battery life, the Galaxy TabPro S comes equipped with a 5,200mAh battery that Samsung says can fully charge in just 2.5 hours, and offers up to 10.5 hours of battery life for all day use. Lastly, there’s NFC, GPS and Bluetooth 4.1 all included, meaning this really will allow you to connect to nearly everything going.

The Galaxy TabPro S will also be available running either Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro for business, meaning that both consumers and business users will be able to enjoy all the features and functionality of Microsoft’s software.

“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,” said Dongjin Ko, Samsung’s president and head of mobile communications business.

“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.”
