18.4-inch Samsung Galaxy View Now Official

galaxyviewSamsung has finally revealed its huge Galaxy View tablet, featuring a large 18.4-inch screen and very average specs.

Design wise, the device looks like any other Samsung tablet from the front, with the exception of the home button, which is absent on this device. On the back though, Samsung has implemented a rather weird design. The device features a built in kickstand on the back along with a handle, allowing you to pick the tablet up like a briefcase. The device is just 11.79mm thick, but weighs a hefty 2.65 Kg. Colour wise, the company hasn’t announced any colour options other than Black.

Regarding specs, the tablet is very mid-range, featuring a huge 18.4-inch screen, but only a 1080x1920p resolution (Full-HD), which means a very low pixel density of 120ppi, at least by 2015’s standards. On the inside, an octa-core Exynos 7580 processor is featured, clocked at 1.6GHz, alongside 2GB of RAM. The tablet will be available with either 32 or 64GB of internal storage which is expandable by up to 128GB via micro-SD. Other features include Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, 4G LTE connectivity, dual stereo speakers, a 2.1MP front facing camera and a 5700mAh battery.

Finally, the tablet comes running Android 5.1 Lollipop straight out of the box, with Samsung’s TouchWiz overlay on top. As of now, Samsung has yet to announce any details regarding the pricing or release date, though they did tease more big-screened Android devices, possibly even a 65″ one.
