Galaxy View (Samsung’s giant tablet) gets cleared for landing

Samsung’s super-sized Galaxy View tablet is set to make its debut later this month, though the company still hasn’t revealed anything beyond a brief teaser last month. This week the device passed through the FCC, revealing a few new details and suggesting an official launch could be right around the corner.

It looks like the Galaxy View will be available with AT&T cellular support. The FCC filing lists the device by the model number SM-T677A, with that final “A” indicating the carrier’s involvement. AT&T’s logo also appears prominently in a rough sketch of the tablet.

The same certification documents also revealed what could be the official dimensions of the Galaxy View. The device apparently measures 17.5 inches by 10.7 inches with a total diagonal length of 20.2 inches. The display by itself measures 18.6 inches, which lines up almost perfectly with earlier reports of an 18.4-inch Samsung slate.

Other rumored specs for the Galaxy View include an octa-core Exynos 7 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The device could also offer a display resolution of just 1920 x 1080 pixels, which seems a bit low for such a big tablet. Hopefully that means Samsung can at least keep the price down as a result.
