Hands-On: Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2

Hands-On: Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2

Samsung introduced new 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro tablet here at CES 2014 in Las Vegas. It’s the biggest Android tablet for Samsung and we had a few minutes with it at their booth this morning.

Aside from the display size, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 did not change in design compared to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition (see our review here).

What Samsung did change was the TouchWiz UI. The new Window UX features a magazine-style interface. In fact, the dual-view feature of the older Galaxy Note tablets is now updated to accommodate 4 simultaneous windows in the panel.

The slot for the stylus is on the top right side along with the micro-SIM card slot and the microSD card slot. At the top side is the IR blaster.

Despite the huge size, the tablet actually feels light and still manageable. For those who prefer larger screens, the Note Pro should be perfect.


Samsung used a Snapdragon 800 chip which means there’s also support for 6 bands of LTE connectivity (compatible with Smart and Globe LTE).

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 specs:
12.2-inch Super LCD WQXGA display @ 2560×1600 pixels
Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz quad-core
Adreno 330 Graphics
32GB, 64GB internal storage
up to 64GB via microSD card
LTE 150Mbps
WiFi 802.11ac MIMO
Bluetooth 4.0
IR blaster
GPS w/ aGPS support, GLONASS
8MP rear camera, BSI sensor
1080p @ 30fps
2MP front-facing camera
1080p video @ 30fps
Li-Ion 9,500mAh battery
7.95mm thin
750 grams weight
Android 4.4 Kitkat

The backside of the Note Pro 12.2 is also lined with faux leather, similar to the Note 3 and Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

It’s a monster of a tablet, both in hardware specs and in size.

Samsung has not indicated the suggested retail price and the release date of the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 but will update once we get more specifics.

    Looks perfect for reading digital comics in portrait mode. Can’t wait for it be released (at a reasonable price, of course…).

    No innovation? How many tablets running a mobile OS do you know have multi-window multitasking? Not even Google’s Nexus tablets have it. The NotePro 12.1 can have up to four windows open at the same time and you can even drag-and-drop data between them.
