Samsung claims the Galaxy View will add a new dimension to mobile entertainment. By that, the mobile device maker means the View's screen size, which measures 18.4 inches, making it one of the largest tablet models on the market. However, the Android-based Galaxy View comes with several other features, including a higher-end octa-core processor and a stand, which will be essential for users who want to use this big tablet to watch videos or, perhaps, even some games. But its large size doesn't mean the tablet will also carry an unreasonably large price. In fact, it's expected to be surprisingly affordable. The Galaxy View represents the culmination of what tablet makers learned over the last year as tablet sales slowed. As tablet sales have fallen and consumers increasingly buy phablets, device makers have decided that building tablets with larger screens may turn things around. The Galaxy View will be one of the first devices to test whether consumers really have an interest in large slates.
The 18.4-inch HD 1920 x 1080 display will dwarf Apple's 12.9-inch offering, and has been designed as a viable lightweight and portable, at least around the home, alternative to a TV. Samsung claims the Galaxy View will have a battery life of up to eight hours of video playback, and can be propped up to watch films and programmes on its inbuilt kick stand.
It will ship with Samsung's new custom user interface Family Square running Android 5.1 Lollipop, which is optimised for the larger display, a 1.6 GHz Octa-core processor and 2.1MP front-facing camera for selfies and video chatting. It also contains 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage. But even for the Wi-Fi only configuration, that's a pretty hefty price for a 1080p tablet, regardless of screen size.
You're not exactly paying for breakthrough hardware specifications, either; the Galaxy View is powered by an octa-core 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, and runs Android 5.1.1 out of the box. On the wireless end, it supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. Samsung says its latest tablet can last through 8 hours of continuous video playback, and it's got a 5700mAh battery helping to achieve that longevity.
There hasn’t been any official price revealed for this gadget, but it should cost a dime. As sources have revealed that it is in a direct rival with Apple.
