Not too long ago, a series of images were published online that allegedly showcased what’s known as the Galaxy View, a brand new tablet from Samsung that offers a huge display and, unconventionally, a handle to help carry that big screen.
Now a new pre-order page for the tablet has gone live at Adorama, and with it a clearer look at the tablet, showcasing just how Samsung expects you to use the device as well as a price tag and what would appear to be official specifications for the still-unannounced tablet. The pre-order page has the device listed at $599 for the model equipped with 32GB of built-in storage, for those wanting to see just how much Samsung would charge for the tablet.
As far as specifications go, you’re looking at a tablet that boasts an 18.4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 1920×1080. There’s an Exynos 7580 octa-core processor under the hood, and it boasts 2GB of RAM with the aforementioned 32GB of built-in storage. There’s a 2.1-megapixel camera on the front of the tablet, a microSD card slot for expandable storage, and it’s running Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. The battery is measured in at 5700mAh.
Samsung wants this to be something that you can, technically, carry around, but it appears that should really only go as far as one room to another, like the kitchen or another room without a TV to catch up on a show or sit down for the long haul and watch a film. At $600, though, is Samsung missing the mark?
