Samsung formally confirms Galaxy Tab Pro, Note Pro lineup

Several hours ago, we brought you what sure seemed to be a very official-looking leak, containing not just detailed technical data on a set of four new Android tablets from Samsung, but pics and all the associated trimmings. By all appearances, the cat was out of the bag. Well, now Samsung’s had time to make its official CES presentation, and in doing so, has confirmed its new Galaxy Note Pro and three Tab Pro models.

Well, if we’re being precise (or drinking the branding Kool-Aid) these are the Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO lines, but it remains to be seen just how well that odd presentation may stick.

Specs-wise, that leak was right on the money, with Exynos 5 Octa chips and Snapdragon 800s powering the lineup (Exynos chips for the WiFi-only versions – though now we also learn that there will be 3G – but not LTE – versions of the 12.2-inch Note and Tab Pro that maintain their Exynos chips). We also get confirmation that the Tab Pro 8.4 will indeed support LTE connectivity.

Display resolution for all four tablets is confirmed as WQXGA (2560 x 1600) and we should be clear that these are all LCD panels – those OLED rumors have yet to deliver. That spells a density of nearly 360ppi for the Tab Pro 8.4 (falling to 248 for the 12.2-inchers)

The four new tablets will go up for sale beginning sometime this quarter.
