Samsung is not letting us down with its CES announcements despite Mobile World Congress just over the horizon. The South Korean company has revealed the new larger 12.2-inch Galaxy NotePRO tablet and three sizes of the new Galaxy TabPRO – 12.2, 10.1, And 8.4-Inches. They all run the newest version of Android with Samsung's UX changes, and will come with a huge package of premium content and services too.

The Galaxy NotePRO is essentially a larger version of the 2014 Galaxy Note 10.1. It has the S Pen stylus and Samsung's raft of UX features based around that tool. The software is Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung's TouchWiz and the new Magazine UX interface designed with tablets in mind. As far as hardware, it's going to be similar to the smaller Galaxy Note tablet. The 12.2, 10.1, And 8.4-Inch Galaxy TabPRO will have similar specs and software features, but no S Pen. Both families of tablets will come as WiFi-only or mobile data equipped.

So clearly these are meant to be positioned at the top of Samsung's product offerings from a hardware perspective. The Tab 3 line was certainly a more budget-oriented offering by comparison. The screens are all 2560x1600, even the smaller 8.4-inch tab (that should look great). Samsung is also ditching the physical menu button, replacing it with a multitasking button. Still, the physical buttons on tablets aren't going away.
