Samsung Galaxy View Specs

Other specs include:

  • 1.6Ghz  octa-core CPU
  • Android 5.1.1 OS
  • 2.1MP front camera
  • 64GB local storage with microSD support up to 128GB
  • LI-ION battery with 8 hours of battery life

According to PRNewswire, “your finger [is] the remote”, so unless you can pair the tablet with a Bluetooth remote, the Galaxy View sounds awfully inconvenient if you use it as a TV. It’s obviously too big to compete with the iPad Pro and other such tablets, so the View seems to be in its own, weird category, especially since it’s a giant tablet instead of, say, a set-top box. However, if a device like this sounds appealing to you, head on over to Verizon Wireless.

Users can add the Galaxy View to their existing Verizon plans at an addition $10/month. Verizon Plans come in five sizes, ranging from size S to XXL.
