This huge tablet is supposedly aimed at institutions like schools and airports.
Not content with the 12-inch tablets in its arsenal, Samsung is reportedly working on an Android tablet with an 18.4-inch display. Codenamed Tahoe and carrying model number SM-T670, the tablet could be put to use in “living rooms, offices or schools” according to SamMobile, and those use cases are probably the reason why the Tahoe is said to carry mid-range specs underneath the gargantuan display.
The hardware is said to include Full HD display resolution, an octa-core Exynos 7580 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a microSD slot, and a 5,700 mAh battery. The dimensions are reported to be 451.8×275.8×11.9 mm, and Android 5.1 Lollipop is said to be the operating system version installed out of the box. The cameras include an 8-megapixel sensor on the back and a 2.1-megapixel sensor on the front.
An 18.4-inch display is not likely to be aimed at the average consumer, though it could certainly come in handy in places where large-screen devices are required for information access. SamMobile has no information on what the tablet will be called or a release date, though we guess an official announcement could come at the IFA next month, possibly alongside an unveil of the company’s upcoming 12-inch Windows tablet.
