We have heard a lot about this 18.4-inch tablet from Samsung, but from other sources and never from the manufacturer itself. But “Galaxy View” is now official. And here we bring you a confirmed list of specifications.
Samsung has finally spoken about why the company chose to have a display bigger than what we already have in the market. The tablet focuses on delivering entertainment to customers. With video-streaming sites getting popular, people are finding themselves more and more comfortable with online video activities, from watching movies to streaming their favorite TV program. While announcing the Samsung Galaxy View, JK Shin, CEO and Head of Samsung’s IT & Mobile Business, said, “At Samsung, we are committed to creating new possibilities and bringing our consumers the best mobile experience. We are very excited to introduce the new Galaxy View, providing an entirely new way of consuming mobile video and entertainment.”
Samsung posted details and specs of the Galaxy View on its official blog. The Samsung Galaxy View was expected to run on Android Marshmallow, but the blog says something else. It is going to be powered by Android Lollipop 5.1.
Keeping the focus on entertainment along with a large screen, the Galaxy View tablet offers customers high-quality stereo speakers. With this tablet, Samsung believes customers will be able to enjoy “a new level of multimedia experience such as video, music and game as well as richer social communication such as video calls and the Family Square feature.”
Again, keeping the tablet’s “entertainment” purpose in mind, Galaxy View will come with a powerful 5,700 mAh battery supposed to provide up to 8 hours of video playback for undisturbed entertainment. Having said that, the company on its blog clearly mentioned that the performance of battery may vary depending on two factors:
i. Network conditions
ii. Device usage
