Samsung is pretty much filling the tech market with a variety of products. The latest addition is a laptop-tablet hybrid called the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S. Check out the five reasons consumers will be rushing to buy this new hybrid.
It Runs on Windows 10
Staying true to its hybrid status, the Galaxy Tab Pro S does not run on Android. It runs on Windows 10, making it an ultraportable computing device that's good for business and entertainment.
The full version of Windows 10 OS is free from bloatware, so users will get a laptop hybrid that is purely made to operate smoothly without the complex odds and ends of the typical tablet. It also comes with Microsoft's Edge browser, which does really well in handling browsing commands, TheNextWeb has learned.
It Has a Familiar Design
The TabPro S borrows the slab-like appearance of the Galaxy Tab S2, but unlike the latter, which comes with a magnesium case, the newest Samsung tablet has a matte plastic rear case and its body is surrounded by a metal frame.
Compared with the Surface Pro 4, the Galaxy TabPro 4 is skinnier at 6.3 mm. It has a 12-inch 2560x1440 AMOLED screen, and its keys and ports scattered strategically on top and on the sides.
It Comes with a Free Keyboard
Perhaps the biggest advantage of the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is its removable keyboard. Unlike Microsoft and Apple, which both charge more than $100 for the detachable accessory, Samsung is providing owners with a fully functional keyboard free of charge.
Samsung's keyboard is all the more commendable because it is full-sized and even has function keys. It has a really small trackpad that functions smoothly and with little fuss when handling multitouch gestures, according to The Inquirer.
It Has a Good Battery Life
The problem with most tablets and laptops and even hybrids nowadays is they do not really meet their promised battery life. The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is different because it can really last up to 10.5 hours on one full charge.
The hybrid has a 5,200 mAh battery, which can produce enough juice to meet the 10-hour mark. It also helps that the device is free from bloatware and has adaptive brightness that helps in conserving energy. The Core M3 processor is also power efficient. Plus, if there is a need to recharge the battery, the TabPro S comes with a quick charging feature, as per The Star.
Other Noteworthy Features
Aside from having the aforementioned specs, the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S prides itself with other commendable features. For example, its dual-core 2.2GHz Intel processor is coupled with 4GB of RAM for multitasking.
The TabPro S also sports a 5MP front-facing camera and the same 5MP shooter at the back. It has GPS technology, NFC, Bluetooth 4.1, USB Type-C and an optional stylus. The biggest upside to this hybrid is the fact that it is lighter than the iPad Pro and the Surface Pro.
