Samsung Galaxy View, the large-screen tablet teased by the tech giant last month during IFA 2015, has finally been launched. Being touted as the “largest Android mobile device on the market,” Samsung Galaxy View’s pricing and availability have not been revealed yet. The 4G LTE-enabled device has been made with a video-centric interface in mind, says Samsung.
The Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Galaxy View features an 18.6-inch TFT LCD full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolution display, which is supported by a built-in 2-way kickstand. The kickstand doubles up as a handle as well to make it easy for users to carry the large tablet around. It is powered by an octa-core 1.6GHz processor (unspecified), clubbed with 2GB RAM.
For the audio, the Galaxy View sports dual 4-watt speakers. The tablet, which comes in 32GB and 64GB inbuilt storage variants, supports microSD card as well. Samsung says the tablet’s 5700mAh battery can deliver up to 8 hours of video playback time. A front-facing 2.1-megapixel camera sits on top of the display. Measuring 451.8×275.8×11.9mm, the Samsung Galaxy View weighs 2.65 kgs. Besides 4G LTE (via Nano-SIM card), it features Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and USB connectivity. Samsung’s Side-Sync feature is also supported.
