Last week we got a detailed look at the Galaxy View, and now we’re learning more about the new tablet. Samsung’s super-sized Android slate recently popped up online with a full list of specs, a price and a few new pictures.
It looks like Samsung will pitch the Galaxy View as a device primarily for watching videos rather than for getting work done. It’s described as “TV reimagined for the streaming age,” though you’ll still be able to run all your favorite Android apps. The company is also including a few media-focused modifications, including suggestions pushed straight to your lockscreen.
The device will apparently pack a 18.4-inch 1080p display, a 5700mAh battery promising 8.5 hours of video streaming, an Exynos 7580 octa-core processor, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, expandable storage and 2GB of RAM. It comes in black or white color options.
The 32GB Wi-Fi-only version listed online costs $599. We’re guessing Samsung will also offer more expensive LTE models, along with the option to add extra built-in storage.
The Galaxy View looks like a pretty interesting device, though we’re still not totally sold on the concept of an 18.4-inch tablet. Hopefully Samsung can convince us otherwise when it finally reveals the device.
