The “Galaxy View, Samsung’s giant 18-inch tablet designed for video streaming, will be priced at $599″ when it’s released on November 6, 2015. That’ll get you the Wi-Fi version with 32GB of inner storage memory; the Samsung View also comes with a MicroSD space for adding more storage if you need it.
A US wireless carrier will likewise be carrying a model with built-in LTE, however Samsung still hasn’t named which; the likeliest competitor is AT&T.
However, even for the Wi-Fi only configuration, that is really a strong cost for a 1080p tablet — paying little more for screen size. You’re not probably paying for internal hardware if I would say, either; the Galaxy View is powered by an octa-core 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, and runs Android 5.1.1.
On the wireless end, it supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. Samsung says its most recent tablet can last through 8 hours of constant video playback, and it has a 5700mAh battery helping to reach that life span.
Our hands on previous report from Samsung should give you a better review of what Samsung is planning to achieve with the new Samsung View. The company doesn’t expect that anybody will carry around this Samsung view as they would with an iPad or Galaxy Tab S2, yet rather it’s intended to be moved around inside the home.
It’s better to consider it like a portable TV (with an exceptionally handle/stand for easy grip) than an ordinary consumer tablet. Is there any business market for such a new device? Maybe, we’re yet to know, but Samsung might’ve valued the new Samsung out of affordable price for the consumers. It’s not a piece of cake and if you’re among those crazy about Samsung you should be able to grab one once it comes out.
