Samsung Electronics Co Ltd recently revealed its new Galaxy TabPro S Gold edition, which encompasses powerful hardware and software capabilities. It's rumored to provide strong competition between the leading tablet device in the market, which is the Surface Pro 4 of Microsoft Corporation.

Microsoft's most powerful tab in the market is threatened with the release of Samsung's new Galaxy TabPro S edition, which includes highly-impressive specs. Here is the quick list of specification and comparison with the Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 and Galaxy TabPro S.

Display: Samsung is commonly known for being an expert for having its devices a powerful display. As the Korean giant tech promised to give perfectly balanced contrast, vivid colors and a crystal clear resolution because of its Super AMOLED technology that is incorporated in the Galaxy TabPro. According to NewAtlas, the Galaxy TabPro has a thickness of 6.3mm and it is 26% thinner than Surface Pro 4.

Processor: Samsung uses Intel's Core M3 processing chipset, which works at 2.2 GHz.

Memory: The TabPro S has 8GB RAM and 256GB worth of internal memory. But Microsoft trumps it with its option of upgrading the RAM, which ranges from 4GB to a whopping 16GB. Also, the current Surface Pro offers up to 256GB of internal storage, which is on par with its counterpart.

Battery: TabPro S is powered by 5,200 mah battery. Samsung promised to supply almost 11 hours of video playback on a full charge device.  The current average battery life of the Surface Pro has labeled as a near-perfect tablet. The users of the Samsung can expect more compared to the Surface Pro tablet.

Price: Samsung has offered a $999 price tag on TabPro S Gold Edition, which is a $100 more expensive than the cheapest Surface Pro 4 variant. However, Samsung compensates the price tag associated with its latest device by adding a superior display and long-lasting battery life compared to the current generation lineup of Surface Pro.

Galaxy TabPro S is the first tablet from South Korea to produce with Windows 10 OS preinstalled, according to International Business Times. It's pretty obvious that Samsung has its advantages over the Microsoft, but the latter is expected to refresh its current generation of Surface devices. For now, Galaxy TabPro S Gold Edition is most likely desirable compared to Surface Pro.
