[Updated] More Samsung Galaxy View images and details leak

We posted some exclusive information about Samsung’s upcoming large-screen tablet last week along with its images and specifications. Now, some more images of this huge device have surfaced on the Internet. The Galaxy View is an Android-based tablet with an 18.4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, and it will reportedly launch in the US with a price tag of $599. Apparently, Samsung will market it as a tablet that focuses on web browsingand media consumption. It will reportedly be available in black and white colors in the US, but there’s no information about the company’s launch plans for Europe.

As we reported multiple times, the tablet will be equipped with an Exynos 7580 processor with 64-bit octa-core CPU clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. In terms of connectivity, it is expected to feature HSPA+ and LTE (Cat. 6) radios, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth v4.1. There’s no rear-facing camera on the Android 5.1 Lollipop-based tablet, but there will be a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, and high-quality stereo speakers on the front for a pleasing media experience.

There will be a 6,700 mAh battery that will help the tablet last upto 8.5 hours of video playback. It can double up as a mini TV that is “reinvented for the streaming-age” and provides a “PC-like user experience”. The Galaxy View also has a media interface that shows media recommendations on the lockscreen. Also, there’s no physical home button on the tablet, which means that it will use on-screen navigation keys. Also, as you can see in the images, it has a housing at its back that integrates a large handle and a stand to help users carry it around and place it on a surface for hands-free usage.

Really 1080p? When note 5 can have 2560. The tablet should at least have 2560 or even higher. But 2560 should be the minimum

Why even bother to comment on things you don’t intend to buy nor don’t even understand or comprehend why they are offering such a wide array of products…. no other manufacturer in the World can even come close to ever offering. Because….. no other brand has the factories of their own or know how and expertise to bring out anything that can actually compete with most Samsung’s products that aren’t just iTrinkets or products made for them by SAMSUNG, Foxconn or some other company that actually manufacturers things for themselves and others too!!!

This tablet is positioned as a portable mini tv screen as is not expected to be viewed as close to eyes as a smartphone or even a regular tablet. In such cases the resolution is more than enough. Remember the best selling Laptop screens are mostly Full HD, which is justified as the viewing distance is much more than smaller sized phones.
Still, it could use a QHD or 4K resolution screen to provide a crisp clear viewing experience, but then neither price nor battery capacity would suffice to support the package. I think Samsung is trying to force a niche market to grow into mainstream, like the one popularized with Note series (Phablets).
