Almost three years ago, Samsung had released its massive 18.4-inch tablet, the Galaxy View. The company remained inactive over the next iteration of the device, but things seem to have started pacing up now in that arena. A few days ago, folks at AndroidPolice reported that Samsung Galaxy View 2 is in works, and may soon be coming to AT&T with a 17.5-inches massive screen. In the latest development on that report, the Galaxy View 2 has received Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certification. The upcoming device seems to be inching closer to an official launch.
Both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certification documents for the Galaxy View 2 mention the model number as: SM-T927A. Interestingly, Bluetooth certification also reveals the product name as Galaxy View 2. Skimming through the information presented in these documents, we can note that the Galaxy View 2 will support Bluetooth 5 connectivity. Meanwhile, Wi-Fi certification for the upcoming device shows that it will be supporting Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n ac connectivity with 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency. You can check out these details in the images shared below.
To recall, the report published by AndroidPolice, hinted that the Galaxy View 2 will sport a 17.5-inch display with 1080p resolution, just like its predecessor. Some of the other reports alleged that the Galaxy View 2 may come in different configurations. As for its design, the tablet could be placed in various position wherein it can act as a drafting or standing desk that would provide the mechanism of a laptop and a tablet both. Concerning hardware, we can expect the Galaxy View 2 to come powered by Samsung’s in-house Exynos chipset clubbed with 3GB of RAM. Additionally, the tablet may not include a stylus and could also come without support for Samsung’s nifty DeX mode.
Previous reports had also claimed that Samsung is planning to launch the Galaxy View 2 in partnership with AT&T. Although the pricing and release date of the device is still unknown, we can expect Samsung to make it official soon as it has already passed through significant pre-release certifications.
