Sammobile has leaked some interesting pictures of the crazy 18.4-inch tablet from Samsung called as galaxy view. The tablet first made an appearance in the unpacked event and it was just a teaser. The pictures that Samsung showed were of an ugly flat slab that is big and bulky. Cut to the present, the leaked pictures show us a rather beautiful design that hasn’t compromised on portability or the mobile experience.
Few insiders have also confirmed that the tablet will have a resolution of 1920×1080 on a super AMOLED display that could be a bummer. The tablet will have mid ranged specs. The interesting news is that for the first time Samsung will ditch the physical home button for the onscreen buttons. In the pictures, you can see that the galaxy view also features a kick stance that is too familiar in the surface pro 3. However, the adjustment of the kickstand with various angle is yet to be verified. The galaxy view also has a groove that will allow the user to carry it similar to the suitcase handle.
This effort from Samsung comes as the tablet industry overall is sliding as fast as it once grew. Samsung wants to reinvent the category that is dominated by apple’s iPad. It is a curious attempt on the tablet. As the phablet category is cannibalizing the sales of tablets, Samsung is going big with this tablet and I certainly would like to try it out and just see how much effort Samsung has put into the galaxy view to make it a media consumption device as well as a productive tablet.
