If you are trying to keep something as a surprise, a giant billboard sized ad is probably not the best way to do it. This is what Samsung is finding out today as what is likely to be one of their biggest announcements at its press conference tomorrow was outed a little early.
The guys at Engadget managed to snap a picture of the wall-sized ad that shows off the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro and its stylus. Under the logo for the Galaxy Note Pro is a notice that the “Tab Pro [is] also available.” The as was spotted in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, where he Consumer Electronic Show (CES) is set to take place on Tuesday.
Other than the physical appearance of the device and stylus, not much can be gleamed from the image, other than that the Note Pro clearly appears to be running some version of Windows. Android has long been Samsung’s platform of choice, but rumors had started to grow recently that they were working on some Windows based devices. This could be the first glimpse into that ahead of Samsung’s CES press conference.
The Galaxy Tab Pro was also recently outed by the FCC and an Indian Import/Export site as having an 8.3 inch screen. We will see tomorrow if those reports end up being accurate.
You can see the images on Engadget. We will have more as it develops.
