Teardown: Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1

16 September 2014
The following is an overview of a teardown analysis conducted by IHS Technology Teardown Services.

Rhoda Alexander, Director, Tablet and Monitor Research at IHS Technology offers her assessment of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 and its place in the market. “The Galaxy Tab Pro is one of a suite of 10.x-inch Android tablets that cover the spectrum from value products to professional. The Tab Pro 10.1 boasts a 300 pixels per inch (PPI), 2,560 x 1600 pixel format, LCD display, the same display used in the Galaxy Note 10.1. With its Exynos 5, Octa-core processor, the unit is designed for high-performance consumer and professional applications.

“The Tab Pro 10.1 at $399 sits in between the Galaxy Tab 3 ($329) and the Galaxy Note ($499) and the AMOLED Galaxy Tab S ($499) in an increasingly crowded Samsung 10.x-inch Android lineup. The specifications place the product at the high-end of the 10.x-inch Android tablets on the market, with most of the products in this category concentrated on lower-performance displays and processors. The price point puts it at the mid- to high-end of pricing in the 10-inch Android market. Samsung remains the market leader in the 10.x-inch category.”
