Samsung Rumored to One-Up Apple's 'iPad Pro' With 18.4-Inch Android Tablet

Samsung may be working on an "iPad Pro" style tablet of its own, with a new report from SamMobile suggesting the company is currently in development for the tablet, codenamed "Tahoe," on an Android 5.1 Lollipop-based operating system and with an 18.4-inch screen. Samsung would target the tablet to enterprise and educational environments, with a lesser focus on day-to-day personal usage than the company's current line-up of Galaxy tablets.

The rumored tablet -- with the model number SM-T670 -- will feature a TFT LCD screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The Lollipop system will be powered by an octa-core 64-bit 1.6GHz Exynos 7580 processor, include 2GB RAM along with 32GB internal storage, with the option to expand thanks to a microSD card slot that supports up to 128GB cards. According to SamMobile, the tablet will also measure 451.8 mm wide by 275.8 mm tall and be 11.9 mm thick.

Apple is rumored to be developing its own larger-screened tablet, the so-called iPad Pro, which is believed to include a 12.9-inch screen. If Samsung's 18.4-inch "Tahoe" device does become available, it'd be one of the biggest tablet on the market, with a screen that's about 10-inches tall by 17-inches wide, far larger than most standard laptops.

That's not a tablet, it's a space station.

Only Samsung could make a tablet that is harder to carry about than the old 17" Macbook Pro ;)

Samsung's flagship phones are all 1440p yet they release a 18.4" tablet and it's only 1080p?

That's a lower PPI than even the original iPad released in 2010. Should be 4K at that size.
