The so-called tablet, which sports a 18.4″ full HD, stereo speakers, and a two-way stand, is all about the media experience. While the hardware itself is designed with videos in mind, the home screen also highlights a number of video platforms, including Netflix, Hulu, Twitch, Crackle, and YouTube, which suggests Samsung may have partnered with some companies for this. The battery also promises 8-hours of video playback.

“At Samsung, we are committed to creating new possibilities and bringing our consumers the best mobile experience,” said JK Shin, CEO and head of Samsung’s IT and mobile business. “We are very excited to introduce the new Galaxy View, providing an entirely new way of consuming mobile video and entertainment.”
The company claims the Galaxy View is “the largest Android mobile device on the market,” and it may well be correct. But Fuhu did tease a range of truly massive Android tablets at CES earlier this year, with sizes ranging from 20″ all the way up to an eye-watering 65″, though these have yet to find their way onto the market. However, Samsung’s isn’t yet on the market either, and it hasn’t revealed dates or prices as of yet. We’ll update here when we can find out more information.
