Samsung Features Galaxy View, Your 18-Inch Giant Tablet

Samsung presented this Wednesday, 28, the largest tablet in the world. The Galaxy View is a 18.4-inch display device that blurs the line separating a tablet from a Smart TV or an all-in-one desktop.

The product was created thinking of media consumption. Video applications take the front of the Samsung tablet, with an Android-based 5.1 interface to highlight services such as Netflix, YouTube and others, although there is the possibility of using Android normally. The same can be done with smaller tablets, but not with the same immersion of a larger screen.

The tablet is also heavier than any other similar in the market, and it could not be different. He weighs 2.65 kilos, which, when added to his size, makes him very difficult to be placed in a backpack. It’s tricky to imagine someone carrying it on a bus or on the subway, but it’s pretty easy to take it from the bedroom to the living room, from the living room to the kitchen and the kitchen to the bathroom.

The product, mainly focused for families and not for traditional Android enthusiasts, does not count with ultrapotentes configurations, however. Its huge screen counts with 1920×1080 resolution, while a Galaxy Note 5 already has a 2560×1440 panel, for example. Your processor is also average, although counting on eight cores, operating at a 1.6 GHz frequency. As the product is thought for video consumption more than anything else, these specifications should be enough.

It also counts with a 2.1 megapixel front camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, stereo speakers and 4g network support. The user can therefore connect a mouse and a keyboard to the device and use it as an all-in-one computer with Android, if you prefer. Size for that he has.

According to Samsung, the appliance must hold up to 8 hours of video playback with a battery recharge. It also has a back support that allows the tablet to be tilted in several positions, allowing it to be almost laid down, with a very mild inclination via HowSmb.
