In return you get a stunning 2560 x 1600 display with lovely colors and clarity, the S Pen for precise writing and drawing, Samsung's excellent Multi Window split window multitasking, good S Pen support from third party notes and drawing apps, a fast CPU, expandable storage and USB host.

In fact, the foundation is based on a dual-core 64-bit Denver CPU core architecture, which is an impressively large core with a desktop-class, wide, 7-issue superscalar design, with clock speeds of up to 2.3GHz.
