The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S made a splash last year, and Samsung is apparently prepping a follow-up to this Windows 2-in-1 that will have a faster processor and more ports.

In recent weeks, a Samsung tablet with add-on keyboard received approval from both the FCC and the Bluetooth SIG, necessary steps before they can be released in the United States. The approval documents revealed many of the details about this device. Still, the specifications won’t be definitive until a formal announcement… expected later this month.
Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2 Leased Specs
The Galaxy TabPro S2 is reportedly going to run Windows 10 Pro or Home on a 3.1 GHz Intel Core i5-7200 Gen Kaby Lake processor, answering the complaints some people had about the Core M chip in its predecessor. There will be 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD for built-in storage. It will apparently have a microSD card slot, unlike the first-gen model.
Much criticism was heaped on last year’s version for its single USB Type-C port. The successor will have two USB-C ports, if these early leaks pan out.
One notable feature not changing is the display. The TabPro S2 is expected to have a 12-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with a 2160 x 1440 (Quad HD) resolution.
On the back will be a 13-megapixel camera capable of recording 4K video. This will be paired with a 5-megapixel front camera. Samsung will bundle the second-gen Windows TabPro with an S-Pen active stylus and a clip-on keyboard, making it a true 2-in-1. Other features will reportedly include a 5070mAh battery, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, and optional 4G LTE support.
The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2 is expected to be formally announced at MWC 2017, during a February 26 press conference. The Android-based Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is also anticipated to debut at this same press event.
