Samsung has launched a new convertible tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas which appears to be squarely aimed at Microsoft's Surface Pro model. Like the Surface Pro, the Galaxy TabPro S runs Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system and can be used with a keyboard cover that attaches via a pin connector. While on the Microsoft device the keyboard cover is an optional accessory, with the TabPro S it is included in the package.

At only 693 grams the hybrid device is lightweight and offers a 12-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2160 × 1440 pixels. Windows 10 is powered by a 2.2 GHz Intel Core M CPU and 4GB of RAM. Samsung says the 5,2000mAh battery provides up to 10.5 hours of power and can fully charge in 2.5 hours. For those who need data connection on the go, a category 6 LTE modem is on board as well. 5MP camera modules can be found on both front and rear of the tablet.

Thanks to Windows 10, the Galaxy TabPro S allows for the installation of desktop imaging applications such as Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop, making it an interesting option for fully-fledged imaging editing away from home. Samsung says the Galaxy TabPro S will be available later this year but no detail on pricing has been provided yet.
