Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 Official Images Leaked!

Following the official photo leak of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, evleaks has revealed an image of the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1. Just like its smaller brother, the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 is rumored to have its announcement on April 24.

According to a recently outed specs sheet, the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 won’t be a substantial upgrade over the last generation Tab 3.

The 10.1″ display keeps the WXGA resolution, as does the battery, which is also unchanged at 6,800mAh. Under the hood, however, there’s a new 1.2 quad-core CPU with 1.5GB of RAM and it runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. At the back, the camera is updated from a 3MP to an 8MP one with auto-focus.

Where the Tab 4 10.1 gets a substantial update is weight. With a rumored weight of 320 grams, the Tab 4.0 10.1 is substantially lighter than its predecessor, which clocked in at 510 grams.

It sounds unrealistic though as the Xperia Z2 Tablet (which is lighter than the iPad Air) weighs 426g. If the weight is true, it would be quite impressive considering the new generation keeps almost the same dimensions at 243 x 176 x 7.95mm.

Now, with the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 and 10.1 out of the bag, only the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 remains to have its time in the spotlights.

The Best of CES 2014!

The Best of CES 2014

CES ain’t quite what it used to be. Pretty much all the big guys have pulled out in favor of doing their own events. The phones are OK and the 4K TVs pretty, but a dime a dozen. But there are still some hidden treasures that are amazing. Here’s all the stuff from CES that made us squeal with glee.

The Oculus Rift Crystal Cove Prototype

The Best of CES 2014

The Oculus Rift may not be ready for consumers yet, but with each beta revision it’s becoming more and more incredible. This year’s beta model—complete with positional head tracking like never before—is more mind-blowing than ever. By far the most exciting thing at CES, even without being finished.

The WWE’s New Network

The Best of CES 2014

Yes, the WWE is getting its own network, and yes it was one of the best things at CES. Whether you’re into wrestling or not, the WWE’s new all-you-can-stream buffet-style offering is a shot at what the future of television could and should be for every channel and interest. So shirtless men throwing each other around while wearing spandex or not, this is fantastic.

FLIR Thermal Camera iPhone Case

The Best of CES 2014

Want Predator-vision? You got it. FLIR’s thermal camera for the iPhone is exactly that. Thermal imaging is far from new, but this implementation is cheap(ish), convenient, and super want-able. You can’t tell me that you don’t want that on your phone right now, even if you might not want to pony up the (comparatively cheap) $350 for it. If that doesn’t make a killer CES gadget I don’t know what does.

Morphie’s Storage-Supplementing Battery Pack

The Best of CES 2014

There’s no MicroSD expansion slot on an iPhone, and they’re harder and harder to come by on Androids too. But Morphie’s solution—a battery pack that also adds storage—is a perfect solution for digital hoarders everywhere who suddenly decided they need more storage after buying the device. It’s not the flashiest gadget ever, but it solves a persistent problem pretty elegantly. And that’s super dope in its own subtle way.

Razer’s Modular Desktop PC

The Best of CES 2014

People have been building their own desktop computers for ages, but Razer’s Project Christine makes takes the tried and true hobby to an awesome height of ease. Snapping in parts like Legos seems like a joy, and each module is liquid cooled by default for extra coolness. And even though this is probably vaporware—Razer is just testing the waters and looking for reactions—it’s damned cool.

Sony’s Close-Up 4K Projector

The Best of CES 2014

Curved or flat, flexible or not, 4K TVs are beautiful. But they’re also expensive, huge, and just TVs. High res is fun but *yawn*.Sony’s Life Space UX Ultra Short-Throw 4K Projector, on the other hand, is a more novel take on the 4K craze, and mercifully easy to move. Of course it will cost a small fortune, and who knows if it will ever really make it to market, but damned if we all don’t want one right now.

CES 2014: Samsung unveils Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro

Close window

The theme of Samsung’s 2014 CES presentation was tablets – the company unveiled a total of four new tablets from two new lines, the Pro versions of the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab tablets. Their sizes range from 8.4″ to 12.2″, breaking past the current barrier of 10.1″ tablets.

All four tablets feature flagship specs that are very similar between themselves and the high-end Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition) tablet. Note that these tablets have Wi-Fi only versions along with a 3G/4G version (depending on the chipset). Also, all of them feature Samsung’s new faux leather backs, which are pretty cool.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2

The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is an upsized Note 10.1. It features a 12.2″ Super Clear LCD of WQXGA resolution (2,560 x 1,600 pixels) with support for finger touch and the S Pen stylus. The tablet features the characteristic S Pen features, including the Pen Window multitasking option.

A new Multi Window split-screen option is available allowing you to work with up to four apps simultaneously. The multitasking is powered by either a Snapdragon 800 chipset or an Exynos 5 Octa. The tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat and has 3GB RAM.

Close window

Samsung went further and enabled interconnectivity with your PC too – with RemotePC you can control your computer from the Note Pro 12.2 or control the tablet through the computer. If you use the tablet, the Universal BT Keyboard and the S Action Mouse will come in handy. Other accessories include the USB LAN hub and the Book Covers.

The goodies don’t stop here – you get Cisco WebEx Meetings for conferencing and Samsung e-Meetings for collaboration. The Ultimate User Content Gift Package, which Samsung values at $700, features pre-paid subscriptions for services and apps, including the Sketchbook Pro app, Dropbox and Bitcasa, Hancom Office, Evernote, other apps and a subscription for a number of news sites.

Close window

The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 hardware is as expected – 3G for the Exynos model, Cat. 4 LTE for the Snapdragon model, 8MP camera with 1080p @ 60fps video capture (30fps for Exynos) and a bigger 9,500mAh battery. Storage is either 32GB or 64GB, but you get a microSD card slot too.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro

Close window

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro comes in three sizes – 12.2″, 10.1″ and 8.4″. The flagship 12.2″ model is almost identical to the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 tablet, with the only difference being the lack of the S Pen stylus.

It has the same 12.2″ WQXGA screen, same Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5 Octa chipset with 3GB storage, Android 4.4 KitKat, 8MP camera with 1080p @ 60fps video capture, same 32GB/64GB storage with microSD card slot, even the same 9,500mAh battery.

Close window

Better still, the 12.2″ model will get the Ultimate User Content Gift Package too.

The Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1″ has a 10.1″ Super Clear LCD with 2,560 x 1,600 resolution. It’s smaller and lighter than the 12.2″ obviously, but the only other differences in specs are 2GB RAM, 16/32GB storage (the microSD card slot is still available) and a slightly smaller battery (8,220mAh, same as Galaxy Note 10.1 2014).

Surprisingly, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 keeps the high 2,560 x 1,600 resolution for its smaller Super Clear LCD screen. The chipset options were cut down, but luckily it was the Exynos 5 Octa chipset that was cut – the Snapdragon 800 with LTE connectivity is the better choice anyway.

Close window

The Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 also has a smaller battery – 4,800mAh – but other than that its specs are identical to the 10.1″ model.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro tablets will be available globally in the first three months of this year, but the company wasn’t any more specific. There’s no mention of price either.
