Whoops! Looks like Samsung let the cat out of the bag on its latest product. The company inadvertently leaked information about the Samsung Galaxy View tablet, an 18.4-inch device that for all intents and purposes is a portable television. It kind of puts the company's logo "the next big thing" in perspective.
Built primarily for watching television or streaming movies throughout the home, the Galaxy View features a funky-looking large rear panel that serves as a handle and kickstand. That makes transporting the 5.8-pound 17.7 x 10.8 x 0.46-inch device from room to room easier than say the Lenovo Horizon 27 or the Dell XPS 18.
The larger-than-life tablet will feature a 1920 x 1080p display and powerful video speaker. Powered by Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) the device will feature a number of popular video channels such as YouTube, Twitch and Netflix. All of the apps will live in a dedicated homescreen so all your favorite shows and movies are only a touch away.
Other key components include a 1.6-GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM with either 32GB or 64 GB of storage. The View will also pack 2.1 megapixel camera, which should come in handy for video chats a slot for an LTE-exclusive nano-SIM card. Samsung is promising up to 8-hours of battery life so you can binge watch several episodes of Dr. Who, Scandal or whatever suits your fancy.
