Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 unveiled early
A bit before the event itself, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 went live on the SamsungMobilePress website. The Android 4.4 KitKat powered tablet is very close to the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) in terms of specs, though obviously it lacks the S Pen stylus.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 features a 10.1 Super Clear LCD with WQXGA resolution (2,560 x 1,600 pixels) and is powered by either an Exynos 5 Octa or a Snapdragon 800. The tablet will run Android 4.4 KitKat at launch, which is the latest version available and newer than what the Note 10.1 currently has. The RAM is "only" 2GB instead of 3GB as on the Note, however.
Anyway, tablet uses the same camera setup – 2MP front facing camera and an 8MP camera on the back. The S800 model can record 1080p @ 60fps videos with the back camera, while the Exynos tops out at 30fps.
Another limitation of the Exynos model is that it is Wi-Fi + 3G only, while the Snapdragon model has LTE connectivity too. Both feature Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac with channel bonding, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 2.0.
Both tablets also feature GPS + GLONASS, an IR blaster and 16GB or 32GB built-in storage, expandable with microSD cards.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 features an 8,220mAh battery (same capacity as the Note 10.1) and measures 243.1 X 171.4 X 7.3mm. The LTE version weighs 477g, while the other is a bit lighter at 469g.
The page has been pulled since (here's a screenshot we took before it was taken down). We expect it will go back up once the tablet is officially announced. By the way, according to rumors we're waiting for Note Pro tablets too.

I have this Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) and it does not come out of box with Android KitKat. Of course I purchased it well before this launch on CES. Model SM-P600 on Android 4.3 is what it comes with.

No S-pen, I don't see the use of this Tablet. Same design and buggy TouchWiz.
