The already teased gigantic Android tablet has once again revealed its face, the Galaxy View is the biggest in Samsung’s tablet segment. Information regarding the 18.4-inch hardware has been making the rounds online for some time now, the huge Samsung Galaxy View tablet is finally available to pre-order.
Listed on US online retailer Adorama – taking pre-orders for the Samsung’s 18.4-inch Galaxy View (SM-T670), but hasn’t stated when customers should expect to receive their orders and it does state that any pre-orders placed will be shipped to customers on a first-come first-serve basis, and credit cards won’t be charged until the unit shipment.
The Galaxy View runs Android Lollipop and is powered by the Exynos 7580 octa-core 1.6GHz processor. For $599, you’ll get an Android powered tablet boasting enormous 18.4″ full HD 1080p display. There’s 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to an extra 128GB via MicroSD card. Other specs include a 5,700mAh battery, stereo speakers, Bluetooth 4.1 and a 2.1MP front facing camera.
The reveal also confirms that it uses 19V D/C Adapter for charging. Judging the device based on the promotional images being used to sell the Galaxy View, it’s somewhat clear to say that Samsung sees this more as a secondary, compact smart TV screen which you can move around your house and where you go. Given that its primary use will be to watch Netflix, or any other video streaming service, it should easily be powerful enough to handle it and with 1080p resolution at its best will still look pretty sharp.
