There were rumors recently that Samsung has an 18.4 inch tablet in the pipeline and seeing what the company teased on stage today at IFA 2015 it seems that there just might be some truth to those rumors. It teased a truly massive tablet today that was introduced as the Galaxy View, not much has been revealed at this point by the sheer size of the thing makes me believe at least that it might be that 18.4 inch tablet. Since it carries the Galaxy branding the tablet is most likely powered by Android.
Samsung didn’t reveal much about this device, “Start with the limits. Then push them,” was all that the teaser said while providing a glimpse of the Galaxy View.
Fortunately the company won’t be making us wait for too long to find out more information about this tablet, it’s going to talk more about it next month.
If it really is that 18.4 inch tablet it would certainly stand out from the crowd, no one is mass producing tablets of that size right now. Apple is expected to unveil a new large tablet soon but the iPad Pro’s display is rumored to come in at 12.9 inch, which would most certainly be dwarfed by the Galaxy View’s display.
What I’m interested to find out particularly is the hardware package, what kind of processor it runs on and how much RAM and storage it will have. Hopefully next month Samsung will provide all of the details sooner rather than later.
