Samsung banner outs Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro a few hours early (updated)
A giant banner outside the Las Vegas convention centre confirms our suspicions: Samsung has plans to launch a new Galaxy Note tablet at CES 2014, and it will be called the Galaxy Note Pro.
The banner snapped by Android Central doesn't give a specific screen size for the Galaxy Note Pro, but if the rumours and FCC filings hold true it will come in at a whopping 12.2-inches. An alleged photo of the tablet from last year showed a faux-leather back on the tablet, like the Galaxy Note smartphone line. (Key update below)
According to specification leaks, the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean tablet will allegedly boast a speedy quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, and 32GB of storage. As for the 12.2-inch display, it will have a pixel density of 2560 x 1600, making for an incredibly sharp experience.
The banner hanging in the Las Vegas heat also mentions a Galaxy Tab Pro. SamMobile reported in December that it will come in two screen sizes: 8.4- and 10.1-inches with 16GB of storage out of the box. (Update: EvLeaks has tweeted a press photo of both.)
All of the speculation and leaks are set to be cleared up at Samsung's press event on Monday at 2pm PST. Pocket-lint will be live bringing you the latest news and first impressions through our Samsung hub.
Update: EvLeaks has posted alleged specifications for both models. The 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro will reportedly have an S-Pen, LTE capabilities, 8-megapixel rear-camera, 2-megapixel front-camera, 3GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of storage, 9500mAh battery, and Android KitKat.
The Galaxy Tab Pro will come in three sizes according to EvLeaks: 8.4, 10.1, and 12.2-inch. Apart from S-Pen and overall design, specifications remain the same as the Note Pro.
