Samsung's 18-inch tablet specs surface online

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2
It's very likely that the device is the Galaxy View that was teased by Samsung at IFA 2015 in September.

Back in August, rumours appeared that Samsung might have a huge, 18-inch tablet in the works. The rumours have just been (indirectly) confirmed by a Samsung device called SM-T670, spotted in GFXBench listings.

The SM-T670's specs show that the new tablet will indeed sport an 18,5-inch screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution and will be powered by an octa-core Samsung Exynos 7 processor clocked at 1.6 GHz.

Other specs include 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of on-board storage space, most likely expandable via micro-SD card reader. There’s only one, front-facing camera with a 2 MP sensor. The battery capacity is 5700 mAh. The listing shows the tablet running Android 5.1.1 but it's very probable it will launch with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The new tablet will most likely be called Galaxy View. A device with this name was teased by the Korean giant at IFA 2015 back in September, hinting it would belong to „a new category” and a tablet with a display of this size definitely fits this description. 

It is still unclear when the SM-T670 is going to be officially released but since it can already be found on GFXBench, we can assume it should hit the market this fall.
