Today, famed leaker Evleaks has given the world a sneak-peek at four new Samsung tablets ahead of the company's proper CES announcement. The tablets in question are part of a new "Pro" line being launched as additions to the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab brands. There will be a Galaxy Note Pro 12.2" model along with three new Galaxy Tab Pro variants, available in 12.2", 10.1", and 8.4" form factors.

Upon close examination of the press renderings, it also appears that Samsung has finally ditched the menu key in favor of a multitasking button. This makes sense considering Google's change to KitKat which made the overflow button show up regardless of whether the device had a menu key. This will probably make a lot of people very happy. If you were hoping for a complete abandonment of capacitive buttons, though, you're out of luck for now. Another interesting visual point to note is that the tablets all appear to have the same plastic textured faux-leather backing that debuted on the Galaxy Note 3.
