A gigantic Lenovo tablet with decent specs shows up on GFXBench

A gigantic Lenovo tablet shows up on GFXBench
Around the end of last year, Samsung surprised us by unveiling a giant monster of a tablet — the Galaxy View — with an 18.4-inch display and kind of underwhelming specs, placing it well in the midranger category. We aren't sure what uses a TV-sized slate may have, but, apparently, it's marketed for school and office work.

Considering the fact that Apple's 12.9-inch iPad Pro is considered to be too large by many, one could say that gargantuan-sized tablets are somewhat of a market niche — a very narrow one, but still one that some manufacturers wish to explore.

Lenovo is also testing the large-display waters. Last year, the company released a Windows 10 tablet with — get this — a 27-inch display, named the YOGA Home 900. It seems that for its next project, the company has decided to tone it down a notch, as a recent GFXBench listing shows a mystery Lenovo tablet with a "measly" 18.4-inch display.

The good news is that, unlike Samsung's View, this Lenovo will actually pack higher-tier specs and have a crisper resolution, which makes much more sense, given the screen size. According to the sheet, the slate's codename is PB2-690N. It will have a resolution of 2560 x 1440 (QHD) pixels stretched across its 18.4-inch screen (160 ppi density), and will be powered by an octa-core, 1.8 GHz Qualcomm SoC, with an Adreno 510 GPU (looks like the upper midrange Snapdragon 652). The device will also have 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of on-board storage, so it's certainly an upper-tier tablet. The device runs on the latest build of Android — 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

What are some cool uses you can think of for such a giant tablet? Use it as a table? Place it in your bathroom, far away from the shower? Use it to stream Netflix for your neighbors across the street?
