Samsung unveils Galaxy View

Samsung Galaxy View largest Android tablet on the market
Samsung Galaxy View
This long-awaited device will soon become the largest Android tablet to be released so far, having a full HD screen that measures no less than 18.4 inches.

The Galaxy View has been in the rumor mill for a while, Samsung also mentioned it a few times, but now they finally decided to unveil it. Although portability has been pushed aside, the 5.8-pound Samsung Galaxy View can still be considered a tablet. It may not be a tablet to easily carry around, but it promises to become the largest Android tablet on the market.

Samsung Galaxy View comes loaded with Android 5.1 Lollipop, but it is a custom version that features an overlay bringing streaming services like Hulu, Amazon, or Netflix as close as possible. The media selection depends on the market - for example, users of the Galaxy View in the UK get BBC iPlayer as well.

In addition to the 18.4-inch full HD touchscreen, this large slate also comes with 4G LTE, WiFi, and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as two high-quality speakers (4 W each). Galaxy View is powered by a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, next to 2 GB RAM, 32 GB or 64 GB internal memory and microSD support. At last, it has a 5700 mAh battery that provides up to 8 hours of video playback.

Unfortunately, Samsung did not reveal the price or launch date, but we can only hope they unleash the Galaxy View just in time for the holiday season. We will get back to this as soon as we hear more, so stay tuned.

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.
