Samsung makes full unveil of 18.6-inch ‘Galaxy View’ tablet

Bigwig South Korean device maker Samsung has recently made a full unveil of its ‘Galaxy View’ tablet --- the company’s forthcoming tablet with a monstrous 18.6-inch screen, which has especially been built for video binging. The tablet was first unveiled by Samsung at IFA in September.

According to Samsung, the Galaxy View tablet is an ultimate entertainment and consumption tablet, which comes with a built-in kickstand. The kickstand props the tablet up at the right angle, so that it can be set on a table or desk, for viewing videos comfortably from a few feet away.

The Samsung View tablet features the enormous, attention-grabbing 18.6-inch, 1080p screen; and is powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core processor. The tablet comes with 2GB of RAM; a pair of 4-watt speakers to handle sound output; and a microSD slot for additional storage.

The Galaxy View tablet has a custom home screen which is filled with a number of video apps, including YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu. When the users of the tablet swipe over to the next screen, Samsung's usual Android home screen shows up.

Video apps from cable providers like Time Warner Cable, Comcast, and DirecTV show up on the top left side of the video grid on the Galaxy View’s screen. The home grid initially does not allow users to move around the already-featured tiles and apps, or add their own favorites like Sling TV or HBO, but Samsung has said that it will enhance the home grid’s functionality by rolling out periodic updates.
