Samsung SM-W700 Windows tablet leaks online

Samsung SM-W700/Galaxy View might run Windows
Samsung SM-W700 imported in India
The large Galaxy View tablet teased by Samsung last month might be a Windows slate after all and is expected to cost around $460 USD.

Samsung teased a large tablet during its Unpacked 2015 event that took place on August 13. Two weeks later, a few high-quality images appeared online, but the company did not release any technical details. Back then, the general opinion was that Galaxy View is a large Android-powered tablet that aims to challenge Apple's iPad Pro. Now, it looks like things might be different.

As the attached image shows, ten Samsung SM-W700 tablets arrived in India for testing. The description of these units is far from detailed, but (S.S-12) could have something to do with the display size, while W700 could unveil that this is a Windows tablet. There is also another piece of information that needs to be taken into account here, the price per unit - 30,383 INR, which converts to roughly $460 USD.

The older rumors about Samsung Galaxy View mention a 12-inch QHD or even 4K display, 4 GB of memory, as well as an Intel Core M processor. The slate will come with a stylus and will be 0.24 inches thick while weighing 1.3 pounds.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
