18.4-inch Samsung Galaxy View tablet is $100 off at Amazon

18.4-inch Samsung Galaxy View tablet is $100 off at Amazon
The Samsung Galaxy View is a tablet that offers a huge 18.4-inch screen, with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Originally priced at $599.99, Amazon has slashed the price by $100, or 16.6%. If owning a gigantic slate is on your bucket list, now might be the best time to pull the trigger on making this purchase. Keep in mind that the FHD resolution on such a large screen, produces a pixel density of 119ppi.

The tablet is powered by an Exynos 7580 SoC, featuring an octa-core 1.6GHz CPU and the Mali-T720 MP2 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of internal memory. A micro SD slot is on board for those seeking additional storage. There is a front-facing 2.1MP snapper, and the 5700mAh battery provides up to eight hours of use between charges. Samsung has built a handle into the design, making it easier to carry around. The tablet supports Wi-Fi connectivity.

We're not sure if this is a permanent reduction in price, or whether you have a fleeting opportunity here to pick up the Galaxy View for $499.99. With Black Friday coming this week, it most likely is a temporary reduction in an attempt to drive sales during a competitive holiday shopping season. And that means that if you wait too long to buy the Galaxy View, you might end up losing this opportunity to save $100.

Amazon will also throw in a 64GB Samsung Evo Micro SDXC card with your Galaxy View, for an additional $17.99. That is a whopping 70% off the usual $59.99 price of the storage card. You can get both the tablet and the 64GB card for $517.98.

You did. For the millionth time, if you don't care, why do you always have to post this same moronic comment on every Samsung article?

I wouldn't mind seeing one in action, but it's too big to carry around, which is just what I need it for. I'm planning to make the iPad Pro my next tablet, but I gotta see it in person first. I hear it's huge.

The iPad Pro is official, but if your looking for a second or third tv, this may be a good buy for that!

I know it's official, I meant see, and handle it. It's a big tablet, and portability is important.

It falls into the Tablet category, but it is definitely not for those who are looking for a tablet. I can see lots of college students who might want something like this instead of buying a tv. I can definitely see myself getting one once my little boy is bigger and wants to watch some youtube kids clips with his sister, or playing multi-player games, etc... This can be also a good product for gamers, it would be a great deal when connected to a Bluetooth controller.

Yeah bro, I could definitely see some nifty home uses for it. Walking around with it would invite thieves too. I bet that things nice man.

Still cant see spending 500 vs a PC price, we got our 23in pc all in one for like 580 a year ago.

But that pc would be super unflexible, heavy, battery consuming.. And I am not a pc hater, I do use one too but it's not a good idea to compare it with PC.

because 18-19 inch frame is flexible? This will almost entirely stay put on a desktop, probably always plugged in. There will be times its not, but I would say 1 in 10 will use it for 'flexibility'. It does have 'up to 8hrs' which I could almost nail that it will never hit that, since most will keep the brightness on high. There is a few windows 18+in tablets, for about the same cost if not cheaper. I guess I just don't see it is all. Might as well get a 18in laptop or 15.6in convertible for under 500, again full pc with i3 intel.

Samsung is running out of ideas... Release a Windows 10 version, it will be a hot cake...... Sammy should also jump into 2-in-1 (a la surface pro) bandwagon to stay relevant in tablet sector

Samsung has been the main company constantly pushing the envelope, and bring the cutting-edge features and specs. They have the right more than anyone else to run outta ideas. Stay tuned though, 2016 approaches.

350-399 will be a faire price not 500

I totally agree! At $400, this would be a buy. I wouldn't get this as a tablet though. Get it as a TV.

I'm thinking about getting one for the bedroom and move the TV out to the office

Samsung's Logic. put QHD screen on a 5.1" device. and Full HD on a freaking 18.4" device.

Tablets this huge are a dumbazz idea. Focus groups must have been stoned.

Dumbazz idea? That's what they said when the then-huge 5.3" Galaxy Note was launched 4 years ago! *Meh*

its a laptop...there was no 5.3in mainstream phone. There is dozens of bulky tablet and laptops in this size. Difference is a full desktop os or a mobile os.
