Samsung's Galaxy TabPro S2 will be the second Windows 10 Samsung tablet

Samsung is working on its second Windows 10 tablet, the Galaxy TabPro S2, according to SamMobile.com. The site says there will be four models, SM-W728, SM-W727, SM-W723, and SM-W720, but doesn’t provide a lot more detail.

There’s speculation of seventh-generation Intel Core M processors, and a 12-inch Super AMOLED 2,160×1,440 display, but not a lot in terms of specifics. Until we see more, we’re not sure whether Samsung can take on the Surface Pro 4

We know what we’d like to see, however: a better keyboard. The keyboard cover on Samsung’s previous tablet, the Samsung TabPro S, was attached only with a very weak magnet. Set the tablet up in laptop mode and jostling things could result in the tablet falling flat on its back, or (God forbid) on the screen. And the keyboard itself was bad, with flat keys that are hard to tell apart by feel and basically nothing in terms of feedback. Here’s hoping the next device does better.

Another improvement we’d like to see: more ports. The TabPro S offered a single USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack, and nothing else. Windows 10 devices should offer more than that, so here’s hoping Samsung steps up for the TabPro S2.

Add those changes, and next-generation hardware, and Samsung could have a decent challenger to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and ThinkPad X1 tablets of the world.

We’ll be excited to see whatever changes Samsung provides. The Windows 2-in-1 market is expanding at a rapid pace, as PC makers try to match what Microsoft itself did with the Surface. Mobile companies like Samsung getting in on the action is sure to prompt a variety of new ideas, making both the tablet and PC ecosystems more interesting.
