Samsung teases the Galaxy View, probably the 18.4-inch Android tablet we've been hearing about


Earlier today, Samsung officially teased the Galaxy View, a tablet with a large screen. Although most of the details surrounding the Samsung Galaxy View are still a mystery to us, there's a very good chance that this is the 18.4-inch Samsung tablet that we've been hearing about during the past month or so.

Samsung did not spend too much time talking about the Galaxy View, and only briefly mentioned the upcoming tablet during the Gear S2 announcement at IFA 2015 earlier today. One detail that we can spot from Samsung's teaser images is the fact that the Galaxy View will come with a built-in kickstand. This, coupled with a large screen size, will probably make the Samsung Galaxy View a choice to consider if watching movies on a large screen is one of your preferred pastime activities. Since the slab will be part of Samsung's Galaxy line-up, it will most certainly run Android as the operating system.

The last time we've heard about Samsung's large-screened tablet, a report from South Korea claimed that Samsung has briefed local telecom operators about its upcoming device. According to previous rumors, the Galaxy View will be a TV-sized tablet with a huge 18.4-inch display. Unfortunately, rumors claim that the display will be the TFC LCD kind, and not one of Samsung's more modern Super AMOLED panels. Other rumored specs include a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, an Exynos 7580 chipset with a 1.6GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of microSD-expandable internal storage.

With market observers pessimistic about the future of tablet, Samsung is probably trying to come up with a differentiating factor in an attempt to boost sales. It remains to be seen if a TV-sized tablet is the solution that customers are looking for. 


What do you guys think of the Samsung Galaxy View?

My money says it has a 4K screen. Samsung promised one by the end of 2015 and this is it.

This is nothing else but cheap low specs Android All-In-One PC meant for schools and such. And all the buzz that tech media makes(putting articles every day) is with no other reason, but to troll the Samsung haters. (you know Samsung is not US company , so doesn't deserve to be The King- no mater what) But hey, Samsung is the biggest Apple's threat , so all the US patriots must get together for bashing Samsung. Right?

US Patriots buy Apple...Um, on the back of every Apple product it says, 'designed in Cupertino, Assembled in China.' Apple is no more an American brand than most of our car parts. Your statement hurts my head.

Man tablets are getting so big, i have trouble using my 10.5 inch tablet yet alone even the thought about using this 18+ inch giant makes me cringe.

Trouble typing to be exact. And it's a bit too big for ease of use.

We went big, went small. At the end of the day, ~10" tablets are the best!

Keep throwing more products out before announcement of Apple on Sept 9th. Also look at Huawei with their Mate S. LOL!!! They tried to be the first to implement Force Tocuh. These products are irrelevant long term. They don't have a loyal fan base for Huawei to make a dent within the US Android Markshare. They will be viewed as HTC.
