Samsung’s supersized Galaxy View tablet looks like this

First images of Samsung’s massive 18.4-inch tablet appear online.

Meet Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5, the newest addition to the market of extra-large smartphones, and the most elegant phablet-style device you’ve ever seen.Earlier this year, we heard that Samsung was experimenting with a massive 18.4 inch tablet, potentially in response to Apple’s own 12-inch iPad Pro, which was heavily rumoured for some time prior to its announcement back in September. We now know quite a bit more about the Galaxy View tablet, thanks to the first leaked images appearing online, alongside earlier specification rumours.

But it’s also a tricky device for which to define an audience, thanks to Samsung’s vast collection of devices in 2015, and it removes some of the previous advantages of the Samsung line over that venerable old Apple iPhone. Thankfully, we now have this image from EVLeaks to help with that: The tablet either has a speaker grill or a handle on the back, along with a pop-out kickstand and what appears to be a very nice display with fairly slim bezels on the sides.

Earlier reports suggested that the screen itself would sport a 1920×1080 resolution, with early prototypes sporting a 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. And while this is a large phone, Samsung keeps its profile light; it weighs six ounces and is just three inches wide and 0.3 inches thick, just small enough that one-handed smartphone users will feel right at home.

You’ll get consistent battery life from the 3,000 mAh battery inside, though, and, like most smartphones, you should expect to get nearly a full day out of a charge. The strength of Android devices when measured against Apple’s phones has long lain in the fact that Android devices offered a level of storage customization; you could almost always expand the memory. Two years ago, that would have been fine, but with the rise of HD video capture and more and more people watching movies on their films, it’s somewhat tiny. Again, cloud storage can mitigate some of that, but, if only to stay right there with Apple, it’s critical that Samsung offer a 128GB version of its devices next year.

We’ve reached a level in 2015 where plenty of smartphones and tablets seem to be plateauing when it comes to horsepower, but performance is almost never an issue. The spring-loaded release on the S-Pen is a small touch, but it gives the whole stylus experience a slightly more premium feel, setting the tone for that throughout your usage of the S-Pen. You’ll get a stronger sense of the “weight” you use when writing here as well; Samsung’s quietly improved the S-Pen’s ability to sense the pressure with which you aim to write. It’s no longer a phone for everyone wanting a large smartphone, in large part because there are so many options on the market, headed by the Apple iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung’s own Galaxy 6 Edge Plus.
