Both variants boast WQXGA display with 4 million pixels that offer crystal clear resolution for a world-class viewing experience. Texts look very clear as well as the photos on the screen. As seen in the specs above, both devices also have Remote PC installed so you can link your Windows PC on the device. Very impressive, indeed.

The devices can also run simultaneous applications and display up to 4 on the screen. This is made possible thru its Multi-Window feature.

The launch of the PRO series gave way for Samsung to introduce Hancom Office, a productivity app that allows users to open and create Microsoft Office documents.

We’d love to get your feedback about these new devices?
