1

The Samsung Galaxy View is a large screen tablet that has recently been launched in Thailand.

With its 18.6 inch display, the Galaxy View is more like a small TV than it is tablet, with Samsung claiming it is largest Android mobile device on the market currently.

Unlike other supersized tablets, such as the iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface Pro 4, which are marketed along the lines of  productivity and business use, the Galaxy View has been designed for those weekends spent binge watching Game of Thrones or whatever Netflix series you happen to be into at any given moment.

The device, which was originally launched in October last year but has only now become available in Thailand, is 4G LTE enabled and comes complete with video-centric interface in mind claim Samsung.

It is powered by an octa-core 1.6GHz Samsung Exynos 7580 processor that comes complete with 2GB of RAM. Internal storage wise, the tablet comes with a 32GB and a 64GB version that also support microSD cards.

The screen is an 18.6 inch TFT LCD full-HD touchscreen that is 1080 x 1920 pixels with a PPI of 120 pixels. The screen is supported by a built in 2 way kickstand that can also be used as a carrying handle seeing as it is certainly a larger than standard tablet.

When it comes to the audio, the Galaxy View has dual 4-watt speakers.

    Has anybody actually handled this Galaxy View beast? I have a 12.2 inch Galaxy Tab Pro that I quite like for in-bed surfing. It had to be replaced on warranty once because the Wi-Fi stopped working and the Bangkok Samsung Service Center couldn’t handie it. The Yokota Airbase BX honored the one-year warranty though and gave me a new machine from off the shelf .

    The price of this machine isn’t bad compared with the 24,500 that they’re charging for the Tab Pro and the 28,000 for the Note Pro. If it is unweildy to hold, though, it would make more sense to buy a smaller tablet and hook it up to your TV via micro HDMI or wifi to watch videos.
