Meet the Galaxy View

Samsung's largest tablet to date is an 18.4-inch behemoth. A few years ago, it would have been unheard of to create a tablet so large, but with Apple's forthcoming iPad Pro and Microsoft's Surface Pro 4, super-size devices are becoming the norm.

The Galaxy View still stands out, measuring 6 inches bigger than its competitors.

Kick back

Of course there's kickstand -- a tablet this big needs a way to stand up on its own. It's built into the back of the Galaxy View and lies flat when stowed.

HD screen

Samsung's really pushing this tablet as an entertainment device. With a full HD display (1,920x1,080 pixels), movies will look good.

Performance

Inside, the tablet has a 1.6GHz octa-core processor that won't wow gamers, but will do fine for playing videos. There's also Bluetooth and support for 4G LTE.
