The Galaxy View costs $599 and arrives November 6

You might remember that we were the first ones to report earlier this year that Samsung had started developing an 18.4-inch Android tablet which the company later confirmed as the Galaxy View. It teased the tablet a couple of times and over the past month or so multiple reports came out and revealed much about the tablet. Yesterday Samsung formally announced the Galaxy View and confirmed its specifications, now we have the price and release date for this big tablet.

Customers in the United States will be able to purchase the Galaxy View from November 6 for $599, this is for the Wi-Fi only model, a LTE model is going to be sold through a carrier and if history has taught us anything it will most likely be AT&T. Pricing and availability for the LTE model will be confirmed by the carrier so there may be some wait involved.┬áThe Galaxy View is meant to be used purely for enjoying content on its large 18.4-inch full HD display, that’s what a major chuck of the $599 price tag buys, rest of the specifications aren’t really that spectacular since it has a 1.6GHz octacore processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage with external expansion via microSD card and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

You have the regular 7-10″ tablet, and you have your big smart TV. This is something inbetween. A portable TV with the common streaming apps installed. It makes sense to try and build a device like this. And if people like it, maybe put in some beefier specs the next time around.
What I don’t understand is that it doesn’t come with sim/LTE as standard. I’m not going to place it on my living room table when the 48″ is already in there, I want to take it with me and stream away from home.

I was wondering the same. Unless they are trying to appeal to sales reps who, until now have had to lug a laptop around to show their wares to clients.

Im fed up with samsung delivering premium products in selected regions. If its not gonna be sold in Europe then dont bother…

Premium? Just because it’s expensive it does not make it premium. it has a mid range CPU inside, not the top end SoC we see in the Note 5 or S6 but lower spec. only 2GB of Ram, Measley 32GB of storage and it’s 1080p only for a 18″ display.

The only thing that stands out is the screen size, everything else points at a $300 or less tablet. If you are going to charge $600 for a tablet atleast justify the cost with hardware that matches the pricetag.
