Samsung's Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 was announced at the CES 2014, but other than photos and descriptions, there hasn't been much other introduction to the device. However The Verge has the latest hands-on with the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. In it one of the most intriguing ability of the new Note is it's quad screen multi-tasking ability.
The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is aiming at the professional market, and it has a spec to match, with a 12.2-inch 2560x1600 resolution AMOLED screen. 3GB RAM, 2MP front-facing and 8MP rear-facing cameras all powered by a 9500mAh Lithium battery. The Galaxy Note Pro is running the Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS with Samsung's own overlay that makes you almost forget that it's Android.
The Galaxy Note Pro will come in both WiFi and LTE models. WiFi model uses Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa-core processor, while the LTE model uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Also included with the Galaxy Note is a S-Pen, making writing memos and to-do lists easy.
In terms of functionality, as you can see from the video, Samsung has created an UI that fully utilizes the extra space on the 12.2-inch screen, enabling users to do multi-window, multi-tasking. They have dubbed this the Magazine UI, which looks similar to the Windows 8.1 LiveTile UI.
What can be noted is that this device can also enable remote PC access, which is nothing new, but what's special about this is that this is not via a third-party app, but built it. With Samsung's own UI, users can drag and drop files between their PC and Note Pro, edit files on the PC through remote access all in the tablet UI.
Samsung will also provide peripherals for the Note Pro 12.2 such as Bluetooth keyboard and mouse etc. But neither that nor pricing has been announced.
