CES 2016: Samsung's latest tablet runs Windows 10

Samsung this year at CES 2016 unveiled the TabPro S, a 12-inch Windows 10 tablet designed to take on the likes of the Microsoft Surface and Apple's iPad Pro.

In terms of the design, the TabPro S pulls inspiration from both Samsung's S6 family of smartphones, and its newly released Tab S2. While the TabPro S has a plastic back - much like the Tab S2 - the front is all glass, and its sides are adorned with similar aluminium chamfering to that found on the Galaxy S6.

Weighing 693 grams and measuring in at 6.3mm in thickness, Samsung says the TabPro S is thinnest and lightest Windows two-in-one currently on the market.

The second part of the TabPro S is a keyboard cover with a full-sized keyboard, trackpad, and adjustable hinge. Every TabPro S sold will ship with the keyboard cover.

Other specifications include a sixth generation Intel Core M processor clocked at 2.2GHz, a 12-inch 2160x1440 display, dual 5MP cameras, 4GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. Samsung says the TabPro S' battery should last for up to 10.5 hours.

In terms of connectivity, the TabPro S features a sole Type-C connector, but an optional dock accessory adds HDMI output and a full-sized USB port. 

A brief hands-on revealed the keyboard feels similar to one launched with the Surface Pro 3. Keys are squished right up to one another, and the trackpad is functional but a little too small.

The TabPro S will be available globally starting from February in a choice of black or white. Local pricing and availability has yet to be confirmed.
