Renders suggest giant Samsung Galaxy View 2 tablet is real, headed to AT&T

According to a set of newly-leaked renders, via SamMobile, the alleged Samsung Galaxy View 2 is real, huge, and headed to AT&T sometime in the near future.

The Samsung Galaxy View, launched in 2015, is a giant tablet with a ludicrous 18.4-inch display. Since the tablet is about as big as a common fast food tray, it only appealed to a very specific audience.

It appears Samsung is ready to give it another try with the Samsung Galaxy View 2. The new model will supposedly be a little slimmer with a 17.5-inch display. It also will have a built-in kickstand in the form of a hinged back with a different design from the original View. Check it out in the images below:

As you can see from the renders, the back of the tablet prohibits it from laying flat on a desk, which could be seen as a benefit. Since it’s so massive, you probably would very rarely want it to lay flat as you’d primarily use a device of this size for media consumption, typing, or graphic design.

Editor’s Pick

The large hole on the back is likely to help you pick up the device. Even in a “closed” state, the large hole will be easily gripped for transportation.

You can’t see it in the renders above, but the back of the device appears to have the AT&T logo. This makes sense as the original Galaxy View was an AT&T exclusive, and it appears this one will follow suit. There will likely also be a Wi-Fi model.

Not much is known about the Samsung Galaxy View 2 as far as specs are concerned, but it’s a pretty good bet it will come with Android 9 Pie, judging from the lock screen depicted in the renders. We also don’t know anything about pricing, but the original Galaxy View launched for $600 — it’s actually still available for $570 at Amazon, if you’re interested.
