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 kid-centered nabi Big Tab 20-inch tablet​

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.

A 18.4-inch tablet? I do not think that would be useful (there are already hybrid devices that work as a PC and as a tablet), so we would have to see how many "tablets" Samsung sells

What an odd promotional image for the nabi Big Tab; a luminescent display wouldn't have soft shadows cast on it, so their hands appear to be floating above an image of the product. Here's some pro bono work, nabi:

I'm surprised they haven't released a Rose Gold phone yet, since they like to release products that Apple is rumored to be making before Apple releases them so they can say they were the first, much like their smartwatch. Then, after Apple releases their product, they borrow ideas from it and incorporate it into their next generation products (just look at their UI from the Gear S2).

Samsung Galaxy SCar 6 Edge+, anyone?

I'm pretty sure it's been established that the more expensive tablet sector is the "adult" sector, while kiddos are responsible for the proliferation of $50 Walmart Android tablets...
Not sure trying to force the opposite is a good idea Samsung.

Lol, yeah... that pic looks realllllly appealing.
I'm sure most four person families want to try to use the same app on the same tablet at the same time.
*smh*
Don’t be so ridiculous. They may want to play a ‘board’ game. They might even want to look at the same web page together without head butting each other into a coma.
