There's a line between phones and tablets. Apart from the difference in size, there are also differences in functionality. For example, tablets cannot make phone calls. And phones are easier to carry and use.
But the line got thinner as phablets became more popular.
With Samsung's Galaxy W, the distinction between both devices have been erased. As you can see above, the Galaxy W can be used to make phone calls, although it looks awkward.
Still, consumers looking for an all-in-one alternative might be interested.
The Samsung Galaxy W, not to be mistaken with Samsung's Galaxy W phone, sports a 7-inch display. Under the hood is a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
It also features an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Other features include a 3200 mAh battery, LTE-A support, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
Available in red, white, and black, the Samsung Galaxy W will be launched in South Korea via SK Telecom for 499,400 won or roughly $490, assuming that it will hit the U.S. market anytime soon.
