Benchmark info has told us a lot more about the mysterious, gigantic 18.5-inch Samsung Galaxy View tablet.
A listing from the GFX Benchmark website outlines all the main specs of the upcoming tablet. The real jaw-dropper is the screen, which measures 18.5 inches across. That’s much larger than the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
The head-scratcher is that despite the gigantic display, resolution is just 1920 x 1080 pixels. A reminder: Samsung packs way more pixels into the 5.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S6.
So is this is an affordable ‘family’ device? Perhaps. It only has one camera, a 2-megapixel selfie jobbie on the front, and the 2GB RAM is the least we hope for in a device running Android 5.1 these days.
The Samsung Galaxy View’s CPU is no weakling, though. The listing says it has a Samsung Exynos 7-series processor with eight cores. That’s four Cortex-A57s and four Cortex-A53s.
The GPU is a Mali-T720, a mid-range graphics brain but one that should be powerful enough to make any top 3D games run well at 1080p.
Previous leaks suggest the View will let you use a Galaxy Note-style S Pen stylus and that it’ll come with an inbuilt kickstand. Apparently we’ll know the full story later this month. Who doesn’t love a good mystery?
