Samsung launches two Galaxy Mega Smartphones; breaks into the 6” zone

by Sayan Chakravarty

Samsung has been updating its smartphone line-up at a blistering pace, but they made a surprising move by launching two Galaxy Mega smartphones at the same time. Samsung, it seems, has gone absolutely berserk with the sheer size of screens on their phones, if you think S4’s 5” screen is a little too big then you won’t be thrilled by the two new devices, they have a screen size of 5.8” and 6.3”. “Phablets”, as they are known in Asia, are meant to diminish the line between tablets and phones. Both will run on the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and will have softwares like Multi-window, Group Play, WatchON, Air View, Samsung Link, S Translator, S Travel, Story Album and more.


The Galaxy Mega 6.3 has higher specs with a 6.3” HD (720p) TFT screen, LTE, 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 8MP rear and 1.9MP front-facing cameras, 8 or 16GB internal memory, microSD card slot and 3200mAh battery. Galaxy Mega 5.8 is more modest of the two with a 5.8” qHD display, 1.4Ghz Dual-core CPU and 2600mAh Battery. It will only have HSPA+ and won’t get LTE. It will be available in Europe by May and the Galaxy Mega 6.3 will be priced around 599 Euros.
