To those who are wondering, the Pro-Series for both Note and Tab devices is Samsung's new high-end or premium line as reflected the Pro releases' well-crafted design and top-notch multimedia features and internal specifications.

In the case of the WiFi-Only Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, users get same luxurious faux leather back cover and grooved chrome-plated side frame similar to that of the best-selling TechPinas Badge of Excellence Awardee, Samsung Galaxy Note 3. This attractive shell is complemented by industry-leading features and powerful innards highlighted by the very crisp 8.4-inch 1600 x 2560 pixels SuperClear LCD, 8 MegaPixel autofocus camera at the back with LED flash, 2 MegaPixel front cam for selfies and video calling, 1080p video recorder, Quad Core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU based Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset that's the same as SGNote3's SoC, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal storage.

The retail package contains the unit itself, the charger, microUSB to USB connector cable, and several pamphlets on how to use and make the most out of the tablet.

Two downsides would have to be the rather small non-removable 4,800 mAh battery pack (or at least, it's far smaller than Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display's 6,471 mAh pack) and the lack of mobile connectivity and LTE support. Nevertheless, it's hard to nitpick on these considering the device's affordable price tag.

You can buy Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 - running Android 4.4 KitKat skinned by the company's TouchWiz UI out of the box - at all Samsung Concept Stores and partner retailers across the archipelago.
