The Galaxy View tablet that Samsung teased at IFA 2015 is now official. The USP of this tablet is its massive 18.4-inch full HD (1080p) display and a unique handle at the back for easily carrying it along. Samsung says, the Galaxy View is built to offer users with a great multimedia experience.
As we’ve seen in the leaks, the front panel lacks a physical home button and have on-screen buttons instead. The tablet also comes with a kickstand for placing it on table. Focused on entertainment, the Galaxy View looks like Samsung’s attempt to bridge the gap between a regular tablet and a 22-inch LED TV.
