Movable Display

Samsung Galaxy View 2 price and release date revealed by AT&T

AT&T officially confirmed the device a day after we exclusively revealed the Galaxy View 2. It’s the successor to the original Galaxy View “movable display” which was also launched on AT&T back in 2016. Some design changes have been made in the interest of increased portability.

The new model also has a slightly smaller display and ditches the integrated handle. There’s a collapsible kickstand at the back for propping up the Galaxy View 2. Apps can be used in both landscape and portrait mode.

Galaxy View 2 price and release date

The carrier hadn’t initially come forward the pricing and availability details for this gigantic tablet. AT&T has now confirmed the Galaxy View 2 price and release date. It’s marketed at people who would like to have a massive, portable display for watching movies and TV shows. Content consumption is indeed a solid use case for the Galaxy View 2.

AT&T confirmed to Engadget that the Galaxy View 2 will be available both online and offline from April 26. It’s going to be sold through the AT&T Next installment plan for 20 equal monthly payments of $37. This means that the Galaxy View 2 costs $740. It’s more expensive than the original Galaxy View which was launched for $600.

So what do you get for all that cash? The Galaxy View 2 has a 17.3-inch 1080p display and is powered by an Exynos 7884 processor. There’s 3GB RAM, 64GB storage and a 5-megapixel front camera for video calls. It features immersive Dolby Atmos audio and a chunky 12,000mAh battery. It’s powered by Android 8.1 so no One UI, not yet anyway. AT&T has integrated some of its services as well. Customers can get easy access to DirecTV Now streaming and AT&T NumberSync for making and receiving calls on the device.
