The iPad Pro and the Surface Pro 4 had it coming.

There’s not an inch of smartphone or tablet turf that Samsung is willing give up on, and given the metamorphosis of tablets from ‘play’ machines to ‘work’ tools – largely heralded by the Surface Pro 3, Samsung was sure to jump on the hybrid devices bandwagon.

Expectedly, they did. Yet they did that via a surprising vehicle – their first ever device running Windows 10 OS! Unveiled at this year’s CES Samsung’s 2-in-1 Galaxy Tab Pro S looks like it means business (see how we used that turn of phrase back there?).

Announced in January 2016, the Galaxy Tab Pro S debuts with a 12-inch (2160×1440) Super AMOLED display (the first ever sAMOLED screen on a Windows device!) which should provide appreciable clarity and color accuracy.

Considering Samsung’s immense experience with AMOLED screens over the past several years, we expect the battery life to be fairly good with this AMOLED+Windows partnership, while offering some pretty decent viewing angles and colour reproduction.

Under the hood, this device is powered by Intel’s fanless Core M3 dual-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz, which is backed by 4 GB of RAM – which should be plenty.

Internal memory is at 128 GB or 256 GB, both solid-state (SSD) options, neither of which are expandable post-purchase.

Cameras – you get 5 megapixel cameras on both, the front and at the rear, which should prove to be ample considering the device’s size.

Samsung, like Microsoft and Apple, has also introduced a Bluetooth keyboard as an accessory for this device. The add-on keyboard is fairly good, and has a trackpad like the other hybrid tablets. What makes this faux-leather keyboard a great option is that it is a “folio” style one – meaning that it can be attached and used in either orientations (portrait or landscape).

This tablet-laptop comes packed with Windows 10 or Windows 10 Pro (and all the functionalities that go with it).
Unlike their Touchwiz Samsung has left the software largely untouched, but has added functionality that will let you unlock the device with a Samsung Galaxy smartphone by waving it over an NFC chip in the keyboard.

Samsung’s Galaxy TabPro S has just one USB Type-C connection, but will be offered with a separate multi-port adaptor complete with HDMI and USB-A and USB-C output.

Released with WiFi-only and LTE-capable variants, this is a pretty impressive spec-sheet and an interesting concoction of Samsung + Windows, but we’ll have to see how the device actually performs once we get our hands on it.
