Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S Preview – Back to Windows with OLED screen




Everyone knows the smartphones and tablets from Samsung, but the company until recently also sold laptops, we are almost forgotten. In 2008 Samsung started selling laptops in the Netherlands, but it had no foothold in the laptop market. In 2014, the manufacturer had therefore the canvas fall for laptops in the Netherlands, but at CES we still encountered again a Windows tablet from Samsung and, good news, the Galaxy Tab Pro S also coming to Europe.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S

The Tab Pro S is a tablet with a Core M processor and a keyboard that you can click magnetically to the tablet. We have of course seen before, for example in the Surface Pro and other convertibles, like Lenovo’s MiiX 700 and HP’s Elite x2, but Samsung has with its tablet still a somewhat different approach than other manufacturers.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S The biggest difference, and something that we encountered on more laptops at CES this, the use of an OLED screen. Just as it did with its high-end Android tablets, Samsung has the Pro S features a Super AMOLED screen and in this case the manufacturer has opted for a 12 “panel with a resolution of 2160×1440 pixels. This resolution is as high as the Surface Pro 3 and the MiiX 700, but thanks to the amoledpaneel the contrast of the Pro S superior. To the extent you can judge a display on the show floor, we can say that the Pro S actually gives a pretty picture with dark black values ​​associated with OLED.

Besides amoledscherm the Tab Pro S even more agreements with other Galaxy products from Samsung. For example, the back of the tablet is of a flat piece made of aluminum, with in the middle a camera. The comparison with the back of the Galaxy A Series is made quickly.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S Like the rear, the rounded edges containing interruptions for antennas similar to those of the Galaxy S6 and on which points do the Tab Pro S is again distinct from other Windows tablets. The tablet comes with built-in GPS antenna and can be equipped with a 4G modem.

Samsung has kept nice and tidy the rest of the exterior. On both sides of the casing is perforated front speakers and further there are left among only a headphone and a USB port c. More connections you have not and you do not need more according to Samsung. Charging is via USB c and if you want to connect more equipment, you can use a special hub. Which contains a USB hub a-, an HDMI and a USB c connector, and will for a still unknown amount to be ordered from Samsung, although you can of course also connect their own USB hub c. Another accessory is a stylus, which was not present at the stand and where we therefore do not have much to say about, other than that used for communications with the tablet via bluetooth.
