Initially unveiled at CES 2016 earlier this year, the Window-powered Samsung Galaxy TabPro S has recently been refreshed. Dubbed the Galaxy TabPro S Gold Edition, this new model comes in a – not surprisingly – gold finish; it even has double the RAM and storage of the previous model.
In comparison to its predecessor, the Galaxy TabPro S Gold Edition differs in three areas: RAM, SSD storage, and colour. As its name suggests, this new model is gold in colour, which adds a touch of luxury. Other than that, the new TabPro S also comes with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. According to Samsung, this is double the capacities of the previous model.
Oddly enough, despite these welcomed changes, the TabPro S Gold Edition still ships with a sixth generation Intel Core m3 processor; this is despite the fact that Kaby Lake-based Core m chips have already started shipping on other Windows machines. These include the new Acer Swift 7 and Spin 7, to name a couple. Other specifications of this new TabPro S remain unchanged, including its beautiful 12-inch 2160 x 1440 Super AMOLED display and 5,200mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S Gold Edition is now on sale in the US for $999.99, which comes up to about RM4,195. As usual, it remains to be seen if this Windows 10 tablet will ever be launched in Malaysia. After all, the previous model – despite Samsung’s plan earlier this year – never made it here.
