What is this abomination? Well, according to Tech in Asia, a fonblet is a “large-display phone with a stylus and handwriting support” — so, basically, this is just Samsung’s special word for phones like the Galaxy Note 3, which everyone else has been (begrudgingly) calling “phablets.”

According to the rest of us, it’s this:

I mean, how is this even pronounced? Is it phone-blet? Fonn-blet? Just no, Samsung. Just no.
