Called just the SM-T670, a Samsung device was leaked online at GFXBench that reveals several important features. Included in those features is an 18.4-inch screen that has a resolution of 1,920×1,080, a Samsung Exynos 7 1.6 gigahertz octa-core processor, memory of 1,8 gigabytes, onboard storage of 25GB and a front facing 2 megapixel camera.
The tablet’s operating system was listed as being an Android 5.1.1 though this tablet could be using the new Marshmallow Android 6.0 by the time it gets released.
A video from Samsung last month hinted at a tablet that was oversized or a device that was 2 in 1 given the name – Galaxy View.
The short video said only: “Start with limits, then push them.”
The South Korea-based electronics giants promised to offer a closer look at that device during October. Although, Samsung has yet to spill any more details, the device that was leaked on Monday could be the one teased last month in the video.
Tablet sales are not the best right now. More and more consumers are keeping their current tablets and many of the new buyers have opted for a larger screen smartphone.
Weakening demand for the tablet has hurt the key players in the industry such as Samsung and its biggest rival Apple. Some wonder how that trend can be reversed and some have answered that by offering larger screens.
The hope by tech companies is that tablets with larger screens that carry an attachable keyboard will serve as a device known as 2-in-1, meaning they act as both a standalone tablet but are also replacements for a laptop, appealing said companies to consumers and businesses alike.
At its launch even for the iPhone last month, Apple introduced its iPad Pro, a 12.9-inch tablet. In June of last year, Microsoft launched the Surface Pro 3, with a screen of 12-inches and it is expected to unveil its new Surface Pro 4 on Tuesday in its launch event.
A tablet that is 18.4-inches sounds huge. Some wonder if the specs that were leaked are worth trusting. That is not an easy thing to say, but one leaker known by the name Evan Blass tweeted that those specs were correct and his track record is solid.
