According to recent report, it seems like Samsung is working on an ‘extra' large Galaxy tablet. This means that we may eventually end up seeing to large tablets from OEMs this fall. Apparently Apple too is working on a 12.9 inch iPad Pro.
The report unearthed by SamMobile, a reputed Samsung related tech website, states that the company is reportedly working on an Android 5.1 Lollipop tablet codenamed "Tahoe". The reason for calling it tablet ‘extra' large is for the fact that it comes with a giant 18.4-inch display.
The leaked dimension hint at 17.7 x 10.85 x 0.46-inches. Unfortunately the tablet is stated to come with a somewhat "low-resolution" display. Nowadays with the inception of Quad HD (2560x1440) display, Full HD (1920x1080) display have become a passe, and that's what the alleged Samsung Tab is said to house.
Tech analysts at Gizbot though, feel that it's strange decision for Samsung to include such a low resoultion display in a 18.4 inch tablet, considering the fact that the present 12.2 inch slate dubbed Galaxy Tab Pro from the company sports a QHD display. Under the hood would be a 64-bit 1.6GHz Exynos 7580 processor along with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card up to 128GB). The battery on the inside is said to be a 5700mAh.
The optics will be taken care of by an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 2.1-megapixel camera on the front. The report doesn't mention the presence of a stylus, but going by Samsung's track record, it won't be a surprising revelation if the final unit does come with an S Pen.
We are into a time where our tablet screen size are beating that of an average laptop by leaps & bounds. So exactly what should be the definition of a tablet?
