Samsung launches an upgraded Galaxy TabPro S, has gold and runs Windows 10

Samsung launched the Galaxy TabPro S earlier in the year – a Pro version of its Galaxy Tab S, that’s just a little bit extra-premium. Today, a gold edition has emerged from the depths of Samsung, and it is a bit more than a colour change.

Samsung Galaxy TabPro S Gold Edition

The new Galaxy TabPro S Gold Edition comes with the same beautiful magnesium alloy body, but with a gold finish.

As for the new specifications, Samsung has bumped the RAM to 8 GB from 4 GB and is giving you 256 GB of solid-state storage by default.

That’s all there is to the Gold Edition – you get a gold finish with the same magnesium alloy body, eight gigs of RAM and 256 GB of storage. Considering this tiny upgrade comes less than a year since Samsung released the non-Gold edition, it could upset a few people.

You are still getting the same tablet beside these upgrades – a Super AMOLED 12-inch FHD display, powered by a 6th generation Intel M3 processor at 2.2 GHz, running Windows 10 with a 5200 mAh battery that lasts about 10 hours.

Pricing & Availability

The 8 GB of RAM, the colour of gold, and that SSD doesn’t come for free – the “regular” Galaxy TabPro S starts at $800 in the U.S. On the other hand, the new Gold Edition will set your wallet back by $1000 – $200 more than the standard tablet.

If you think the tiny spec bump and gold colour is worth $200, you can buy the new tablet starting from today in the U.S. at Best Buy and Samsung’s online store. The exact model Is SM-W700NZDBXAR, just in case you need that.

Perhaps it would have been better to launch the gold edition simultaneously with the standard edition, but $200 for 8 GB of RAM Is just a bit too much unless you like the colour gold very much.
