Samsung tantalized the tech crowds at IFA 2015 in Berlin this weekend by offering a sneak peek at the company’s soon-to-be-launched Galaxy View tablet.
According to tech website Recombu, Samsung offered attendees a quick look at the product at the end of the company’s Gear S2 smartwatch presentation.
Onlookers only got a quick view of the tablet, but they were able to see that the Galaxy View has a built-in, fold-out kickstand in the vein of the Galaxy Alpha and Note 4.
The teaser was enough to whet the appetites of the crowd. Samsung said the crowd would “have to wait until October” to hold the tablet in their hands.
There are clearly a lot more questions surrounding Samsung’s new mystery slate, but the company said we’d have to wait until October to find out what this entertainment behemoth is really capable of.
An article by Tech Radar said the forthcoming Samsung tablet will boast an 18-inch screen and is code-named “Tahoe”.
Samsung’s Global Marketing Executive Vice President Younghee Lee introduced the video, saying that the company’s venture was launched in the “spirit of boldness.”
In the spirit of boldness, we’re planning yet another adventure. Here’s a little glimpse of what we mean. A whole new mobile viewing experience for a new generation.
