Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3 officially official

Samsung has officially announced two Galaxy Mega phones, one sporting a 5.8- and the other one a 6.3-inch display, targeting folks who like big screens but don’t want to pay the “Galaxy Note premium.” In that sense, these two are mid-end products and will most likely outsell Sammy’s premium Note offering.

The Galaxy Mega 5.8 has a qHD (540×960 pixels) screen, 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8-megapixel camera on the back, 1.9-megapixel front-facing one, HSPA+ and Wi-Fi connectivity, 2,600mAh battery, 8GB of internal storage and a microSD memory card slot.

As for the Galaxy Mega 6.3, it sports a 720p HD screen, faster dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 8 or 16 GB of internal memory, 3,200mAh battery, while the rest of the specs are the same.

When it comes to preloaded apps, expect a number of Samsung apps and software tweaks running right from the get-go. These include Group Play, Samsung WatchON, Samsung Link, S Translator, ChatON, S Travel and Story Album…

The new Samsung Galaxy Mega series will be available from May starting with Europe and Russia, and gradually releasing in other markets.

    Nah, these two aren’t that interesting. I prefer the Galaxy S4.

  • So what’s the difference between a really large screen smartphone and a tablet?

    I think Samsung’s just getting a bit out of hand and very greedy now. Flooding the market with so many different variants of their Galaxy line of phones. Who is this meant for? You have folks that enjoy the relatively smaller, more pocket able phone with the S3 and S4. For the ‘phablet’ fans that want a bit more screen real estate there’s the Galaxy Note 2.

    5.8 and 6.3 inches are such strange sizes. Why are they doing this? On top of that they are sporting some very mid tier specs.
