Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2: hands-on (Video)

We just gave you some quick tours of the three new Galaxy TabPRO models (from SamSUNG, apparently, or…? No, not like that?), including the Gregor Clegane of the bunch, the hulking TabPRO 12.2. Initially, however, when following rumors of that model’s development, we were expecting this 12.2-incher to be a Note model, complete with S Pen. As luck would have it, we actually got both options, and complementing the TabPRO 12.2 we have the new NotePRO 12.2.

While in years past we might have expected to see Samsung skimp a little on the Tab model and give all the great hardware to the Note tablet, this time we see the pair arrive on equal footing, both running either Exynos 5 Octa or Snapdragon 800 SoCs (depending on radio configuration) and featuring WQXGA 2560 x 1600 displays – really, the S Pen is the key differentiating factor between these otherwise nearly identical tablets.

We already showed you some hands-on action with the TabPRO 12.2, so let’s switch gears for a moment and check out its stylus-supporting cousin, the NotePRO 12.2:
