It is a big but lightweight tablet-laptop hybrid with immense potential and steep price tag.
Ativ is the second tablet-laptop hybrid introduced by Samsung this week, besides the Ativ Pro, about which you can read here.
As the name itself suggests, Samsung Ativ is the striped down version of the Ativ Pro. Like its powerful cousin, Samsung Ativ too comes with an 11.6 inch touchscreen display and has a detachable keypad which, when attached, turns the device into a full-fledged laptop. It comes with high end specifications like Windows 8 operating system, Intel Atom processor, 2 GB RAM etc. We had a chance to get our hands on this tablet during its launch ceremony in Delhi on Tuesday. Here's what we felt about the tablet during our first encounter.
The new range is expected to be unveiled at the IFA 2015 event which is scheduled to be held in Berlin next month.
The device has been made available for pre-order and will be available for purchase from August 28.
Spec wise there is hardly any difference between the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+.
Samsung is holding the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 13th in New York where it is expected to reveal its next-gen phablets.
The Galaxy S4 Mini Plus is also sold as Galaxy S4 Value Edition in some markets.
Samsung wants Tizen to be the 'OS of Everything' - mobiles, TVs, cameras, home appliances and wearables - so that all the devices are interconnected and can be managed from anywhere.
At 5.9 mm thickness this is the thinnest smartphone of Samsung but is not the thinnest handset of the world.
The new flagship tablet will come in two screen sizes – 9.7 inch and 8 inch.
At just 5.9 mm thickness, the Samsung Galaxy A8 is also the thinnest smartphone of the company.
As per report, Samsung will launch its Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus as soon as August 12 and will start selling them from August 21.
