Samsung’s 18.4-inch Tablet Gets Certified, Imminent Release Expected
Reports have been rife for the past few weeks that Samsung might be working on an 18.4-inch tablet identified by the model number “SM-T670.” The Korean giant itself teased the tablet during the official presentation of the Gear S2 smartwatch and it appears the product will make its market debut under the name of “Samsung Galaxy View.”
Now, it seems that the View’s market release might be just around the corner, as the tablet appears to have been certified by Bluetooth SIG. There was no mention of the hardware components of the device, so the only clue that links the product to the Galaxy View is the “SM-T670” model number.
If earlier reports are to be believed, the fabled 18.4-inch tablet will sport a TFT LCD screen carrying a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The device will be powered by an Exynos 7580 octa-core 64-bit processor, paired with 2 GB of RAM.
It reportedly packs a 5,700 mAh battery, and should run Android 5.1 Lollipop, presumably with the latest version of TouchWiz UI on top. The tablet features 32 GB of internal memory expandable via microSD by up to an additional 128 GB.
Given its dimensions, the Galaxy View would obviously be too big for mainstream users, and seems to be more of an entertainment-oriented device designed for living rooms. The information regarding its tentative release date and price are still unknown. We’ll update you as soon as we get more details.
