In the last couple of years, there has been a trend to increase the display size on smartphones and tablets, as illustrated by the Nexus 6. Previously, any smartphone above 4.5-inches was deemed to be on the larger side, but most devices these days range between 5.2-inches to 5.5-inches. This begs the question, what is the acceptable limit? According to Samsung, there’s room in the tablet market for an 18.4-inch model which almost defies belief.

The device’s specification has apparently been leaked via GFXBench 3.1 performance tests. According to the benchmark, the Samsung 18.4-inch tablet will feature a Exynos 7 Octa (4xCortex A53 + 4xCortex A57 – ARMv8 big.LITTLE) CPU, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage (25GB once the OS and other applications consume space) and front facing 2-megapixel camera. The screen’s resolution seems rather low at 1920×1080 and offers a poor pixels-per-inch rate for modern tablets. Although this might help the Mali-T720 perform better in graphically demanding tasks.

Samsung currently refers to the device as the SM-T670 which runs the latest version of Android 5.1.1. Additionally, the tablet supports Bluetooth, GPS, a Lightsensor, and WiFi. Sadly, NFC isn’t possible, and the huge size restricts gaming focused inclusions such as a gyroscope. Nevertheless, this piece of information appears to prove the existence of Samsung’s 18.4-inch tablet and I’m fascinated to see who the target market is.

What do you think the maximum sensible size for tablets should be?

    I’m fine with an 18 inch tablet. I want one, though, not entirely sure what I would do with it. I think it would be nice if it had an easy mounting system that I could put in several places….kitchen for recipes and entertainment while cooking, in front of the treadmill, near the porcelain throne, take pictures at concerts, etc…
