Samsung Working on an 18.4-inch Tablet, Because Size Does Matter
Samsung apparently wants to push boundaries as the company is reportedly building a new huge Android-based tablet that could be used in the workplace. According to a report from SamMobile, the South Korean electronics giant is currently working on a behemoth tablet with 18.4-inch display.
The device is allegedly codenamed “Tahoe” and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. It is said to feature a TFT LCD screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, an octa-core 64-bit 1.6GHz Exynos 7580 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a microSD card slot (supporting up to 128GB cards), and a 5,700 mAh battery.
The report further claims that the tablet boasts an 8-megapixel primary camera and a 2.1-megapixel secondary camera. It will measure 451.8 mm wide, 275.8 mm tall, and 11.9 mm thick.
A tablet with an 18.4-inch display would obviously be too big for mainstream users, but might suit people who want to pursue specialized tasks.
The final name of the tablet, or the information regarding its tentative release date and price are still unknown. We will update the story as soon as we get more information.
Meanwhile, Samsung is also said to be working on a 12-inch tablet powered by Windows 10. Spec-wise, the tablet might feature a 13nm Intel Core M chipset, 4GB RAM, and an S Pen.
