Right at the end of the Gear S2 unveiling at Samsung UNPacked event part 2 where the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 were announced, Samsung teased the crowd with a mysterious device which the Korean tech giant simply calls it the Galaxy View and didn’t gave any other information about the device but just these few images.

Samsung is already rumored to have prepped for an 18.4-inch tablet device which would début later this year and it even comes with a device model on hand with SM-T670 and looking back on those early rumors, the Galaxy View fits on the descriptions as seen on these images.

The SM-T670 though not official nor confirmed, would feature a large 18.4-inch capacitive touchscreen TFT-LCD display with a full-HD 1920 x 1080p resolution. Under the behemoth is an 8-Core Exynos 7580 processor with 2 GB of RAM. It should come with a 32 GB of on-board storage as standard with a microSD card slot for storage expansion. As a tablet device of some sort, it comes with an 8 Megapixel main camera while a secondary 2.1 Megapixel camera sits on the front.

We’re not quite sure whether Samsung would position the device as a tablet but given its monstrous size and the built-in kickstand, it could also suggests something of an Android-based All-in-One PC given the fact that the device follows the naming convention of Samsung devices with Android OS associated with the Galaxy series at 18.4-inch. Some practical facts however, a tablet is supposed to be carried out handily around but at 18.4-inch, isn’t it just too big for a tablet?
