Video: Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2 Hands-on [CES 2014]

We were able to get our hands on the Galaxy NotePro 12.2 from Samsung this afternoon at CES in Las Vegas. The device, as one would assume, is quite large – sporting a 12.2″ Super Clear LCD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600, this is the largest Android tablet from Samsung to come to the States. 

Depending on which model and which market you buy the device, it will either feature an Exynos 5 Octa processor or a Snapdragon quad-core processor. Each variant features 3GB of RAM, an 8MP back-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, Android 4.4 with a revamped version of TouchWiz on top, an S-Pen, plus all of Samsung’s proprietary software baked in.

A neat feature that the NotePro 12.2 has that you won’t find on other models is a 4-way MultiWindow option. With this, you can view four different apps at the same time, all on one screen.

Below we have placed our hands-on video with the device at Samsung’s booth, so be sure to check it out. We also did a video to focus solely on TouchWiz and Android 4.4. You will definitely want to see that.

Galaxy NotePro 12.2 Hands-on

TouchWiz and Android 4.4 Overview

  • Gary Graf

    It’s weird that the notifications have a black background. Why not just make the whole shade white

  • NeilGeorge

    For a while I thought he was using google glass to do the review.. 😛

  • jim

    Terrible review, cant understand one Word he says

    • NeilGeorge

      I see you are a troll now 😛

    • Diablo81588

      You have bad hearing.

    • goodbyebb

      It’s not a review…it’s a quick look. You should be thankful that Tim and Kellen are taking the time to get a quick video to show us these awesome new products.

      • DK

        Regardless of its quality, I think they’d be the thankful ones, for us visiting their site, considering the same information is available on a dozen other sites.

  • jim

    So its really like my note just with a bigger screen, same processor same ram etc

    • poop

      Except it’s tailored to a different audience (using the tablet for a likely very different purpose than as a phone), this doesn’t say what processor (could be a newer one than the Note 3’s), and well, it’s a tablet, not a phablet.

    Lots of fancy hand gesturing! haha 🙂

  • Mon

    I wonder how Google Now will be integrated with Touch Wiz on the 4.4 updated on the S4? I pray that S-Voice is removed (not likely). I want to be able to use the “Ok, Google” feature from the home screen.

    • jim

      Ok google works on my note 3,

    The lag is nauseating

    Always fun showing a Nexus device side by side to customers.

    • Kevin

      It’s not the final product. So it’s not surprising that you will see some lag. Also the fellow didn’t use the S-PEN correctly.

      • StuckOnVerizonForever

        Lol its never a finished product when it comes to Samsung

  • Greg Morgan

    That looks like a much better version of the Chameleon launcher that bombed a short time ago.

  • 918273645ams

    Four apps at once! That’s absurdly awesome. Can’t really see a real world use for that but I think it’s quite cool it’s an option. Now if only they would ditch the silly overlay (Although it is better than before).

    • DraY

      i normally use, toolbox app on my windows 8 devices to open multiple apps on one screen I usually use, calculator, converter and note pad to do money conversions and whatnot….. on my note 8 i usually open 2 apps side by side, webrowser and Utorrent, so I dont have to constantly open and close apps…. very convenient… the more the better… if you don’t need to use it don’t, but please don’t complain, if you don’t get it. .

      • 918273645ams

        Am I not allowed to share my opinion? It wasn’t really a complaint.. Just stating how I feel. Sorry.

  • Any guess or info on the price? I’d really like a large tablet like this with a stylus.

    • 918273645ams

      I’m gonna guess $599.. Then again that’s a complete guess, could be less could be more.

      • BSweetness

        Maybe for the TabPro. But given that the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 comes in at $549/$599, I’m going to guess that the NotePro 12.2 will be at least $649/$699 for a WiFi only model, if not a little higher.
