What an interesting development – Nokia supposedly working on a tablet sporting an 18.4″ (no that’s not a typo) screen, and it’s been spotted on GFXBench with some other reasonably sharp specs.
Personally I’ve always felt that anything larger than 10-inch is no longer classified as a tablet, and at 18.4-inches, this thing is no tablet, it’s basically a flat-scren display with some touch smarts built into it. How is it even portable?
Putting my opinion on screen sizes aside (I know there is a market for these), I’m not convinced this monster of a device will yield anything exciting for Nokia. According to Nokia Power User the full spec list is as follows
- 18.4-inch display with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels
- 4GB of RAM
- 64GB of internal storage
- 2.2GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset
- Qualcomm Adreno 540 GPU
- 12MP main camera with LED flash
- 12MP of front camera
- Android Nougat with Android FIH Edition
- 4G LTE, Wi-Fi,Bluetooth, Compass, GPS, NFC
- Single SIM
In reality this could be a potentially cheap-ish addition to your home entertainment gear, but portability… I don’t think so. It reminds me of the giant tablet Samsung put together for kitchen use a little while ago .. anyone remember that one?
