Samsung’s tablet department has been quiet for nearly a year now since it released the high-end Windows 10-based Galaxy TabPro S. That’s about to change this week if a report from SamMobile is any indication. The report claims the Korean tech giant is preparing to launch two new Windows 10 tablets at CES 2017.
Featuring the model number SM-W720, the higher-end of the two rumored tablets will be the successor to the TabPro S, according to SamMobile. Note that the model number marks a slight bump up from SM-W700 for the Galaxy TabPro S. The rumored tablet will be called the Galaxy TabPro S2, as SamMobile suggested back in August when it reported that Samsung was building a successor to the Galaxy TabPro S.
As a quick recap, the current Galaxy TabPro S features a 12-inch Super AMOLED display with a 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution. Under the hood, it packs 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It also has an optional 4G. The dual-core 6th-generation Intel Core M processor clocks in at 2.2GHz and also powers the current tablet. With that in mind, Samsung could bump up the rumored device with Intel’s 7th generation Core M processor. Rumor also has it that the upcoming tablet could retain the 12-inch form factor of the TabPro S squeezed into a svelte metallic unibody.
Meanwhile, the second, mid-range tablet will likely bear the model number SM-W620 and could come with a smaller form factor. Since it’s a mid-range variant, the device could feature lower specifications and have a cheaper price tag.
There’s no official word from Samsung as of this time, so this rumor must be taken with a grain of salt. Anyway, it won’t be long before we hear more about the upcoming Windows 10 tablets from Samsung. The tech giant is expected to offer more details about its upcoming products in a few hours’ time.
