It has long been rumored that Samsung will unveil the follow-up to its Galaxy TabPro S 2-in-1 at the 2017 edition of the Mobile World Congress, which is scheduled to get underway in Barcelona, Spain, at the end of February. Now, it seems that a full set of specs for the device has been leaked ahead of its official reveal, by way of documents submitted to the FCC.

As anticipated, the TabPro S2 is set to retain its predecessor’s 12-inch, 2,160 x 1,440 resolution Super AMOLED display, which was praised for its high contrast ratio and wide color gamut in the our review of the TabPro S.

Under the hood, the hybrid will boast a seventh-generation Intel Core i5-7200u processor based on the company’s Kaby Lake architecture, which is clocked at 3.1GHz, according to a report from MS Power User. The system will utilize an integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 card as its GPU.

The TabPro S2 is set to feature 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and 128GB of SSD storage. Users are able to expand the amount of storage they have available to them via the device’s SD card slot.

The hybrid will also come fitted with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera that’s capable of recording 4K video, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. In terms of connectivity, it’s outfitted with two USB 3.0 Type-C ports, Bluetooth 4.1 capabilities, LTE support, dual-band 2.4 and 5GHz 802.11ac Wi-Fi support, and a SIM slot. It also packs a large 5,070mAh battery with a 25W turbo charger, and supports Samsung’s S-Pen and keyboard cover.

It’s good to see that Samsung has amended some of the weaknesses of the original TabPro S, like its lone USB Type-C port. However, there are still questions to be asked as to whether these improvements can allow the system to compete with Microsoft’s Surface line, the undisputed ruler of the hybrid market. In any case, we’ll need to know more about Samsung’s pricing for the TabPro S2 before we know how it stacks up to the Surface Pro 4.

Google brings powerful features to Samsung Galaxy S22 and Tab S8
Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus size difference.

Alongside the debut of the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Tab S8 at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked 2022 event today, Google is highlighting several powerful new features that it’s bringing to Samsung’s latest flagship devices.

Since the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Tab S8 naturally come with Android 12, they’ll be able to benefit from the latest enhancements and design features in Google’s mobile operating system, but that’s not all. Google is also adding an enhanced Live Sharing feature to Google Duo for Samsung’s latest smartphones and tablets, plus built-in Voice Access and more.

Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus side-by-side.

You’ll have to look past the design of the new Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus to see what’s new, but we think it’s worth it. The 6.1-inch Galaxy S22 and 6.6-inch Galaxy S22 Plus have upgraded cameras, a new processor, and the promise of multiple software updates to keep them fresh for years.

The Galaxy S22 is the smallest of the three new Galaxy S22 series phones -- don’t forget, these two are joined by the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which looks quite different -- with a 6.1-inch, FHD+ resolution AMOLED screen complete with a dynamic 120Hz refresh rate for smooth scrolling. The Galaxy S22 Plus has the same screen specification, but it’s a little bigger at 6.6-inches. Both have a new feature called Vision Booster, which Samsung says can up the brightness to a massive 1,750 nits for better outdoor viewing.

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is the king of Samsung’s tablet lineup
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 set up on a keyboard cover to work as a laptop.

Samsung finally launched its newest trio of Galaxy Tab S8 tablets during its Samsung Unpacked February event, and all of them turned out to be mostly in line with what we were expecting.

While many buyers will be happy with the Galaxy Tab S8 or S8 Plus, the S8 Ultra is the company's most premium option and is certain to turn the heads of power users. Its noticeably larger size is an attractive feature all by itself, but Samsung hasn't stopped the upgrades there. The S8 Ultra is also packed with a variety of internal improvements over its smaller siblings and is clearly geared toward productivity and people who work from home. These improvements will come at a higher asking price, of course.
