Apple is apparently not be the only one working on a really big tablet. Samsung is reportedly working on an Android 5.1 Lollipop tablet (codenamed “Tahoe”) with a giant 18.4-inch display, according to a new report from SamMobile, a Samsung-focused blog with a reliable track record on leaking the company’s upcoming products.
The tablet, which is said to have dimensions of 17.7 x 10.85 x 0.46-inches, may come with a somewhat “low-res” screen. The report says the screen resolution will be 1,920 x 1,080 (full HD), which isn’t anywhere nearly as sharp as the 2,560 x 1,600 resolution on the company’s 12.2-inch Galaxy Tab Pro.
Other specs include a 64-bit 1.6GHz Exynos 7580 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card up to 128GB) and a 5,700 milliamp-hour (mAh) battery.
It will also have an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 2.1-megapixel camera on the front.
No mention of a stylus, but given Samsung’s love for its S Pen, we wouldn’t rule it out entirely.
What would a person do with such a huge tablet? Drawing, design work and being used as a secondary screen are a few uses that come to mind.
We’ve seen tablets evolve from 10 inches to 7 inches to 8 inches to 9 inches to 12 inches over the years. Will 18-inch tablets be the next big (excuse the pun) thing?
