Mostly hush-hush on this purported tablet, Samsung thought it’d be a great idea to give us a look at the alleged 18.4-inch tablet. Going as the Galaxy View, it made its brief appearance at the end of the Samsung livestream during IFA 2015, earlier in the day.

Looking like a propped up Microsoft Surface with its own kick-stand, the Galaxy View left us asking more questions as Samsung only hinted with a couple of phrases for us to put together: “think bigger” and “a new dimension of entertainment”. Oh and they mentioned that more information about this huge “tablet” will be out come October.

If the device’s screen does indeed come at an 18.4-inch size, we’re left mystified as to why earlier reports state that it’ll only pack a 1920 x 1080 display (works out to about 119 ppi), a lowly resolution for a screen that size. In terms of processing it packs a bigger punch – thanks to an assumed Exynos 7580 processor, together with 2GB of RAM. The earlier report labels the device as the SM-T670 or Tahoe but we’re unsure if these two are the same.

For in-built storage the device apparently carries 32GB of internal memory that can be expandable through a microSD card. The report also mentions that the device carries an 8-megapixel rear shutter, while the front only gets a lowly 2.1-megapixel camera. Being quite a large display, the device will measure 451.8mm x 275.8mm x 11.9mm and feature a 5700 mAh battery powering it.

Currently, Samsung’s largest tablet in their line-up is the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 and it runs a QHD (2560 x 1600) screen. Will Samsung let its latest multimedia consuming tablet only run at a 119 ppi? We’ll only find out in October. Then again the earlier reports are just rumours, so don’t think Samsung has dropped the ball, just yet.
