18.4-inch Samsung Galaxy View tablet now official

The next big thing from Samsung is now official. And we do mean big, at least for a tablet. The 18.4-inch Samsung Galaxy View has been unveiled today, a week after we passed along pictures of the device that showed it from multiple angles. The manufacturer says that the Galaxy View is the largest mobile Android flavored device in the marketplace, although larger devices are purportedly being prepped by other companies.

The 18.4-inch display features a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution, and the Samsung Exynos 7580 SoC is under the hood, carrying an octa-core 1.6GHz CPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB/32GB of expandable native storage. A front-facing 2.1MP camera is on-board, while the 5700mAh battery will power the slate for 8 hours of video playback. The tablet supports 4G LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity. The Galaxy View is 11.9mm thick, and comes with stereo speakers and a two-way stand. With the large screen, Samsung has built a device that is geared toward those who love to watch videos. 

Samsung has yet to slap a price tag, or launch date on the Galaxy View. A couple of days ago, we told you that pre-orders are being taken by two on-line retailers, B&H and Adorama. Both are asking $599 to reserve the 32GB Wi-Fi only version of the tablet.
