Previously, it was reported that a massive 18.4 inch tablet featuring the Samsung logo was spotted at Zauba. Turns out the information was true all along because the South Korean tech giant is working on a massive 18.4 inch tablet that is going to be running Google’s Android platform. Most likely after hearing the strides that Microsoft is making with its upcoming Surface Pro 4, even Samsung is aiming to reduce the functionality gap between tablets and laptops.
Massive Android Tablet From Samsung Has Been Codenamed Tahoe; Will Be Running Exynos 7580
According to the details present on Sam Mobile, the massive Android tablet from Samsung will possess the codename Tahoe and is going to be incorporated with the company’s own developed Exynos 7580. Keep in mind that just because the model name of chipset is a little higher compared to Exynos 7420 does mean that it will perform better than the latter. In fact, the processor present inside Exynos 7580 is an octa-core Cortex-A53 that is running at a clock of 1.6 GHz.
Thankfully, Samsung Tahoe will provide support for a MicroSD card up to a capacity of 128 GB. In addition, the massive Android tablet will sport 2 GB of RAM, a 5,700 mAh battery and a resolution measuring at 1920 by 1080 pixels. Other specifications of the slate have been listed below:
- 8 megapixel primary camera and a 2.1 megapixel secondary camera
- Dimensions: 451.8 mm wide, 275.8 mm tall, and 11.9 mm thick
The source was not able to pinpoint the price of the massive Android tablet, but seeing as how it will feature an 18.4 inch screen, we should not expect it to come bearing a price-friendly stamp. Despite the fact that the large screen will cater to those who require products for work and entertainment related purposes, it is the Android OS that will keep the consumers somewhat limited. However, we will wait for pricing details and keep you guys updated on whether or not the slate is worth your hard earned cash.
