Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Mega 2, which we’ve mentioned before, has been caught at the FCC. The device marked as SM-T2558 won’t be a high-end model and will rather target buyers on a budget who don’t mind carrying a super-big phone around.
Although the FCC paperwork is done and the device will be ready to be sold and used on the U.S. soil that doesn’t mean Samsung will actually offer the Galaxy Mega 2 in the States. This unit seems designed for parts of Asia where folks for one reason or another love phablets.
In its own backyard, the Galaxy Mega 2 could be offered by SK Telecom and we’re sure it will also be heading to other places.
Again, it’s worth pointing out that Samsung is not the only company trying to sell us 7-inch phone/phablet. Asus’ FonePad is another such device, but the Taiwanese has a smaller marketing budget. Perhaps with enough cash spent on ads, Samsung convinces a critical number of users to buy pants with bigger pockets. Or something of that sort. We’ll see…
