Samsung Galaxy View spotted at FCC
The gigantic 18.4-inch tablet will likely become a surprise announcement from Samsung in the coming months.

Samsung had already briefly teased the Galaxy View during its Gear S2 smartwatch event early September. Now, the ginormous 18.4-inch tablet has made it to the FCC for the usual wireless inspections before an official launch in the U.S.. According to the source, the Galaxy View will carry the model name SM-T677A and hit AT&T first with 4G LTE support. FCC illustrations also show stereo speakers.

Core specifications remain unknown as Samsung has been tight-lipped on such features. However, an unknown Samsung device running Android 5.1.1 with an almost identical model name of SM-T670A has recently appeared on GFXBench to reveal some general hardware specs. Most interestingly, the data reveals a FHD 1920 x 1080 display, which would lead to a pixel density of 120 PPI. This is compared to the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and its 2560 x 1600 resolution display and 288 PPI.

Other rumored specifications include an Exynos 7 Octa SoC, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB eMMC, and a relatively small 5700 mAh battery. Sources such as @evleaks have already "confirmed" the leaked specifications on GFXBench.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
