Samsung introduced the Galaxy View yesterday, a giant tablet with an 18.4-inch screen, but while the company detailed the specs it did not say when the View will arrive or indeed how much it would cost. It wouldn't be much of a story if details on those two things were not now trickling in, so thankfully that is exactly what is happening.It seems that the Galaxy View will be launched on November 6th, which is the end of next week, and we know that one of its retailers will be AT&T as the company's branding showed up when the View passed through the FCC. As for price, the 32GB base model will cost $600, which was the price widely predicted. The 64GB variant has not received a price just yet, but we guess a hike of $50 to $100 over the 32GB Galaxy View seems a reasonable estimate.
Samsung says the Galaxy View is the largest Android product on the market, although that may not last long as other companies are apparently going bigger in the coming month. Nevertheless, the View is huge, boasting a Full HD 18.4-inch screen. Under the hood there is Sammy's own Exynos 7520 processor, 2GB of RAM, a choice between 16GB or 32GB of storage, micro SD card expansion, a 2.1 megapixel front camera, stereo speakers, LTE connectivity, and Bluetooth 4.0. A 5700mAh battery means the Galaxy View is good for 8 hours of video playback. "At Samsung, we are committed to creating new possibilities and bringing our consumers the best mobile experience. We are very excited to introduce the new Galaxy View, providing an entirely new way of consuming mobile video and entertainment."-JK Shin, CEO, Samsung
