Samsung unveils Galaxy View
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.
