September 3 Samsung gave a hint about a soon preview of a new tab with an enormous bias. Later many leaked pictures appeared. October 27 the press-photos, work guide and technical characteristics have been released and in a day an official announcement took place.
The brand-new tab comes with a diagonal of 18.4 inch while its display resolution is only 1920 x 1080 pixels per inch. The Samsung View runs on Samsung Exynos 7580 processor and features 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a MicroSD slot for storage expandable to 128 GB.
"The largest Android mobile device on the market" comes in two versions. The LTE version supports Wi-Fi on default. The 32 GB version of the device will cost about $600.
According to the pdf-work-guide published on Samsung’s web-site, the View Tab should be carried like a briefcase. The manufacturer says the Galaxy View is being pitched as a portable TV-set rather than a tablet.
It is expected that the new tab will cost cheaper than iPad Pro being launched in November. The lowest price of the Apple device is $799.
