It was first reported a couple of months back that Samsung was building a new tablet with a massive 18.4 inch display. Sure enough the company soon confirmed that this tablet would arrive in the near future. Last week pricing and release date of the Galaxy View were confirmed and now this tablet is available for purchase in the United States via Samsung and multiple retailers.
Galaxy View is a truly unique tablet as it has an 18.4 inch display, a size that’s not at all common as far as tablets for the general public go, companies like Microsoft and even Apple have pushed the 12 inch mark for these slates but Samsung has outdone them all on size alone.
However the tablet is far from a flagship, it has a fair full HD display and specifications you would expect from a mid-range Android tablet, but then again it’s not meant to be an Android powerhouse. This tablet has been made with the express purpose of content consumption in mind.
It even has an entirely different home screen for all sorts of different content services, such as Netflix, Hulu, Showtime Anywhere etc, which allows users to easily select which service they want to use to stream content from. Galaxy View’s 18.4 inch display size makes it a perfect tablet for that purpose.
Galaxy View is now available for purchase in the United States via Samsung’s website, Amazon, Best Buy and B&H for $599.99.
