Samsung Galaxy View 2, a giant tablet with a battery at the same level

It had leaked recently and we were surprised by how long the original model was on the market: Samsung I had not thought about renewing the Galaxy View since the date on which it officially launched its gigantic tablet, in October 2015. Three and a half years away, but we already have date and price for Samsung Galaxy View 2. Of course, at the moment he stays in the United States.

Is AT&T the American operator that has brought to light the official existence of the tablet and also all the specifications and prices. It will be an exclusive model of said telephone company, at least for now. We would not mind that he also arrived in Spain as it has a special appeal: a 17.3 inch screen.

It is clear that the Samsung Galaxy View 2 It is not intended to be used in displacements, but it can be really useful in presentations or in works where a huge useful surface is required. Of course, it is not that it is characterized either by the power or the screen resolution, two details that are off the hook of a hardware that, on the other hand, has quality flashes.

Features of the Samsung Galaxy View 2 tablet

The hardware balance is a bit unbalanced. The power and basic performance are somewhat fair; the screen and battery size are gigantic; the resolution falls short taking into account the 17.5 inches of the panel. This makes the Samsung Galaxy View 2 It is more a product for multimedia consumption at home than a productivity tool. A contrast for a device that seems out of place.

Using the Galaxy View 2 at home does not seem the most comfortable in the world

The design is that of a giant tablet on the front and a convertible laptop on the back: the key to the Samsung Galaxy View 2 It is a hinge to the Galaxy Fold that allows movement to the backsheet so that the screen adjusts with the desired inclination. The View 2 dispenses with the handle that did have the Galaxy View original; offering in return a book aspect that, however, cannot be folded in reverse to protect the screen. It is what is missing.

In a video posted by AT&T orient the Samsung Galaxy View 2 to the domestic environment thanks to its huge screen of 17.3 inches; a use that, given the dimensions of the tablet, is not too comfortable. The reduced resolution points to the particular market, also the limited hardware. With the error of not include Android 9 Pie with One UI, something strange in the case of a new product.

The Samsung Galaxy View 2 It does not have a rear camera, so all multimedia capture falls to the front 5 Mpx sensor. Its use does not go beyond videoconferencing: taking photos with a device of that size is anything but comfortable.

What stands out most is in autonomy. 12,000 mAh is a lot of battery even taking into account the dimensions of the screen. This should allow you to enjoy the Galaxy View 2 away from home and without needing to charge the tablet every two times. Although we must finally see how much autonomy remains.
