The name of the latest Samsung tablet reveals it all. Galaxy View is a multimedia-centric tablet with a huge 18.4-inch screen (bigger than the conventional notebooks nowadays) with powerful speakers and a 5700 mAh battery to keep the show running for longer periods of time.
For starters, the 18-inch screen packs a Full HD (1920×1080) resolution, Exynos 7580 SoC including an octa-core 1.6 GHz CPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB internal memory and Mali-T720MP2 GPU taking care of the graphically intensive tasks. Also, the tablet has only one front-facing camera with 2.1MP resolution that will serve well for video calls, a built-in stand on the back for better positioning and a handle for carrying around the house more easily.
The connectivity options include GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 while cellular support will come later in the US and Europe. The large 5700 mAh battery promises up to 8 hours of Wi-Fi browsing and 299 hours of music playback. However, all of this nifty hardware comes at $599 in the US while the device sells for €649 in Europe (Belgium).
