What on the street is Samsung has an 18-inch tablet in the works. Whether or not that is true remains to be seen. However it looks like Alcatel has beaten Samsung to the punch with the OneTouch Xess tablet which they have announced at IFA 2015 which will come with a 17.3-inch display.
As you can tell from the photo the Alcatel OneTouch Xess has a rather unique and obvious feature. This comes in the form of an adjustable built-in stand and handle. This will allow users to prop the tablet up to view videos or to view websites. Admittedly this does not make the tablet particularly portable (its 17.3-inch display probably doesn’t help either) but if you plan to use it at home or in the office, it should be good enough.
The photos also shows the varying angles that you can lean the tablet, depending on your height or comfort level. Other features of the tablet includes 3-watt JBL dual speakers to help enhance the sound experience, along with a stainless-steel body that should be pretty nice and “premium” to the touch.
As for its specs, the Alcatel OneTouch Xess will feature a Full HD display, a MediaTek MT8783T chipset, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. There will also be a whopping 10,000mAh battery along with Android 5.1 Lollipop calling the shots. Pricing was not mentioned but it is expected to go on sale by the end of the year.
