Last year, we gave you the news of Galaxy View 2, the successor to the 2015 Galaxy-View's 18-inch monstrosity of a tablet. In a series of leaked renderings obtained from SamMobile, we now get a glimpse of this "slimmed down" episode.

When it comes to rendering, the Galaxy View 2 digs in the integrated handle of its predecessor, though it will also have a kickstand – up to 30 degrees adjustable and with a hole in the middle, possibly for a lighter grip. The screen size is reduced to 17.3 inches, although the resolution is still unknown (our source had suggested that the 1080p resolution of the Galaxy View be maintained). The renderers show an AT & T logo on the back of the device, which confirms our contribution.

Regarding the internals, SamMobile refers to a Geekbench listing for the model number SM-T927A which mentioned an Exynos 7884 7885 SoC and 3 GB RAM, specifications, that resemble the Mid-Range Galaxy A8 of the past year (19459017). The prices are not yet known, although I believe that the price does not depend too much on the $ 599 of the original Galaxy View.

I had laughed at the weirdly oversized 18-inch Galaxy View, but there were some who really enjoyed that size. called it the perfect kitchen appliance. However, in a world of Google Home Hubs and Lenovo Smart Displays, I wonder if a full-fledged Android tablet is still the ideal device for this use case.
