Samsung Electronics has announced the Samsung Galaxy View, which is by far the largest Android “tablet” on the market. Everything about it is huge, from the 18.4-inch display down to the battery.
The device will be running on a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7580 processor with a Mali-T720MP2 GPU. It also has 2GB of RAM with 32GB of internal memory with microSD expansion support of up to 128GB. There is no rear camera but there is a front-facing 2.1MP camera for video calls and awkward selfies, I guess. In terms of connectivity, it has dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and a nano-SIM slot for LTE connectivity. Rounding out the specifications is the device’s 5,700mAh battery which promises eight hours of video playback.
The Galaxy View is essentially aimed at those who spends a lot of their time in consuming mobile video and entertainment. On the back, there is a handle to conveniently carry it with a two-way “versatile” stand – which is receiving a lot of mixed feelings, because it doesn’t look like there is any hinge on it for storage.
There is currently no information on the Galaxy View’s pricing or availability yet. However, let’s not rule out the possibility of it being available here in Malaysia. You would purchase a tablet this size, right?
