Since the original Galaxy View tablet was launched on Verizon in early 2016, Samsung has yet to unveil a new version of that device. Those who have been waiting for its successor might not have to wait longer as renders of the Galaxy View 2 have been leaked, courtesy of SamMobile, indicating an imminent launch.
The renders show a more compact model with a supposedly 17.5-inch display, which is slightly smaller than the 18.4-inch screen of its predecessor. Unlike the original version which lies flat when folded, the new Galaxy View features an improved hinge that enables the device to lie at a 30-degree angle. This design is supposed to make it easier and more convenient to type on the tablet when it is placed on a table or on your lap.
The device can also stand upright when unfolded, propped up by the built-in kickstand at an angle conducive to watching videos or making video calls. It is also noticeable that the handle found in the original version is a no-show on the Galaxy View 2.
Official specs of the tablet remain under wraps, but it is expected to be powered by an Exynos 7885 CPU paired with 3GB of RAM. Unlike its Verizon-exclusive predecessor, the Galaxy View 2 in question is believed to be available on AT&T when it is released. A Wi-Fi model is also supposed to be in tow, though there's no word whether an unlocked variant will be available to other countries.
