by: - Last updated on: October 22nd, 2015

Samsung has been rumored for a long while that it will release a huge Android tablet, and we’ve seen this summer rumors suggesting the South Korean company is working on a 18.4-inch slate. And now we already have a couple of pictures that have leaked online showing the device entirely.

Samsung-oriented website SamMobile has managed to obtain exclusive images showing the 18.4-inch monster tablet from Sammy. Judging by its size, we’re not sure if this should be considered as a rival to the iPad Pro, as Apple’s mammoth tablet has a size of 12.9-inch. To be frank, the Galaxy View is simply Samsung’s biggest tablet in their lineup and shouldn’t literally be taken as a rival to any other device out there.

As we can clearly see from the pictures, this is the first time in a couple of years that we are seeing a Samsung tablet without the company’s traditional hard home button. Instead, the tablet will feature on-screen navigation buttons, which will make it easier to operate, taking into consideration its big display.

A tablet this big surely needs as dock to make it easier to be used. the tablet’s dock. It folds out at the back and also has a handle to make it easy to carry around. The tablet also has a front-facing camera, which is most likely going to be useful in video calls. Now this is one feature that will look great – high-quality Skype calls on a huge screen.

Previous leaks and rumors were suggesting that the Galaxy View will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and will have a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7580 processor with Mali-T720 GPU, 2GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage, a 2-megapixel secondary camera, and a 5,700 mAh battery. The device is expected to be 451.8 mm wide, 275.8 mm tall, and 11.9 mm thick.

Would you be interested in such a big device? It does seem like a nice tablet, but in my opinion it will prove an interesting device for doctors, engineers, architects, engineers and so on. Still, I imagine that watching a movie on it would be so badass…

  1. Add musicians and anyone else who needs to view life-sized sheets of paper to the list of those who will be standing in line for the Galaxy View. It will need to function well in portrait mode, unlike the HP Slate which does not even have a portrait mode because HP decided to disable it (I guess they wanted to market it more as an All-in-One rather than a tablet).
