Samsung-NotePRO-1Samsung unveiled new workhorse Android tablets at CES, two of which feature monstrous 12.2-inch displays.

Samsung landed in Las Vegas with guns blazing. The company announced a wide array of new products, including curved television sets, cameras, tablets, and more. With its eyes set firmly on Apple, the company revealed four new Android-based tablets that up the ante to the nth degree.

Falling under the NotePRO and TabPRO brand names, the four tablets include the NotePRO 12.2 and the TabPRO 12.2, 10.1, and 8.4. The only real difference between the two 12.2-inch models is that the NotePRO device offers the S Pen stylus and more enterprise-friendly software. All four tablets feature WQXGA (2560 x 1600) Super clear LCDs with a 16:10 aspect ratio. The displays are impressive, to say the least, and the 8.4-inch model has stunning pixel density. All three surpass the pixel density of the Apple iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina Display.

As Apple did with its two tablets, so did Samsung when it comes to tech specs. Each of the four tablets offers a nearly identical set of hardware features; the major difference between them is size. The NotePRO 12.2, TabPRO 12.2, and TabPRO 10.1 all use Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa processor, with four cores at 1.9 GHz and four cores at 1.3 GHz. The TabPRO 8.4 runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, though Samsung said the exact model will vary by market. All include 3 GB of RAM and come with either 32 or 64 GB of internal storage. Each of the four tablets will offer Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and LTE connectivity options. They include 8-megapixel main cameras and 2-megapixel user-facing cameras, a variety of sensors, and a standard set of ports.
