Samsung's absurdly large Galaxy View tablet is official

After being teased and leaked multiple times over the past few weeks, Samsung today officially revealed its supersized 18.4-inch tablet, the Galaxy View. As you might expect, the company's pegging this as the perfect device for people who consume heavy amounts of media -- you know, through Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go and other streaming services. Aside from its absurdly large screen, which features a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, the Android-powered Galaxy View comes with a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, an undisclosed 1.6GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD). There's also a nano-SIM slot for LTE connectivity, while the decent 5,700mAh battery promises up to 8 hours of video play. Unfortunately, Samsung hasn't announced pricing or availability yet, but we'll likely learn those details in the coming days.
