Samsung's extensive Galaxy tablet lineup is getting a huge addition today. The 18.4" Galaxy View has one mission, and that's to make media consumption as easy as possible. Samsung has customized the Android 5.1 homescreen on this slate to let viewers get straight to common video providers like Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube.
The View rests on an included curved stand that appears to be switchable between "tent" and "tablet" modes. The stand also has a molded handle for toting this 5.8-pound (2.65Kg) bruiser around. The View doesn't look like it can lie flat without the stand, though—the back side of the system has a large hump for the internals.
That 18.4" screen offers a 1080p canvas for content. The View is powered by a 1.6 GHz "octa-core" SoC, along with 2GB of RAM. 32GB or 64GB of internal storage and a microSD slot give media fiends room for local content, while 802.11ac and LTE connectivity let the streaming videos flow.
