[Update: Full details] AT&T reveals the Samsung Galaxy View2 with 17.3-inch display and LTE connectivity
Earlier today, we posted about leaked renders of the Samsung Galaxy View2. This was the first time we’d heard about the device since last Summer. Now, AT&T has revealed the giant tablet in a YouTube video on their official channel. There has been no official announcement yet, however.
The initial report was slightly off with the display size as it’s 17.3-inches, not 17.5-inches. Still, this is a very large tablet that is only good for very specific situations. AT&T highlights the situations where they think you might want to use such a device. As you might expect, mobility is a focus as this tablet has LTE connectivity. A WiFi-only version may also be in the works, but we haven’t seen any solid reports about that.
Not many specs are mentioned in the video. We know the display size and 4G LTE connectivity, but they also mention Dolby Atmos sound, 12,000 mAh battery, and 64GB of storage. Other features like AT&T NumberSync and AT&T Video Calls will work on the device as well.
Update: Full details
After publishing the video above prematurely, AT&T has finally shared the full details about the Galaxy View2. In addition to the specs in the original article, the device has a 1080p display with a cover that flips back to act as a stand. The device is powered by a 1.6GHz Exynos 7884 SoC with 3GB of RAM. There is also a front-facing 5MP camera. We don’t know what version of Android it is running.
The Galaxy View2 will go on sale April 26th from AT&T for $37 per month on a 20-month plan, which equals $740. That’s a hefty price for a very niche product that essentially exists to push AT&T’s streaming services.Source: Engadget
