Samsung announces Australian pricing for 4G Samsung TabPro S

Posted: 11 May 2016 10:02 am


The Windows 10 hybrid now has a SIM option.

When Samsung launched the TabPro S in Australia las month, it only offered a single Wi-Fi only version with an asking price of $1,499 outright. At the time, as it had when the TabPro S was first announced earlier in the year, it promised that a version with an included SIM card slot for LTE (4G) data access would follow shortly. Now that day has arrived.

Samsung Australia has launched the 4G Samsung Galaxy TabPro S, available for $1,799 outright through Samsung’s online store as well as selected retail partners.

That means you’re paying a relatively hefty $300 price premium for the inclusion of LTE in the tablet itself; that kind of money could rather easily buy you a mobile hotspot to use with the regular model.

We noted in our review that one of the highlights of the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S was its battery life. The inclusion of 4G LTE may affect that somewhat given the power draw of an additional radio, but this is still a good all-day choice regardless. Your other choices in the hybrid or ultraportable space include models such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 or Apple MacBook 2016.
