Samsung is working on a giant, 18.4-inch tablet device is no secret. The Galaxy
View, as the device is expected to be called, was teased a month ago, during the announcement event for the Gear
S2 smartwatch. Furthermore, a recent GFXBench
benchmark revealed a lengthy list of
hardware specs for the upcoming slate. And now, we have pretty solid proof that
the tablet is headed to AT&T.
The FCC has
just approved a tablet identified by the model name SM-T677A.
While the Samsung Galaxy View is not officially official, it is expected to
have an octa-core 1.6GHz Exynos 7 SoC, paired with 2GB of RAM, 2MP front-facing camera and 32GB of storage. The screen is supposed to
have a resolution of 1920 by 1080, which is okay, but seems rather low given
the size of the device's screen. Android 5.1.1 is on board, skinned in the
typical Samsung TouchWiz manner.
no word as to when the Samsung Galaxy View is going to be released, but we're
expecting it to launch on time for the holiday shopping spree. Pricing has yet
to be revealed.
