Just when you thought the Galaxy Note 2's screen size of 5.5'' was too big, Samsung's back to surprise us all - again. The new Galaxy Mega lineup will feature two devices, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and the Galaxy Mega 6.3. Each of the numbers correspond to its screen size, in inches. Originally, the Galaxy Note III was rumoured to sport a 6.3'' screen, due to Samsung's gamepad, but those rumours might be laid to rest with the Galaxy Mega.
According to Sam Mobile, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 will come in white, and should be available around late May, with the larger variant coming out three weeks later, with a option for a white or black phone.
The Galaxy Mega 5.8 will come in two variants, one with dual-SIM capability, one without. However, the screen's expected to sport a disappointing resolution (for its size) of 960 x 540 pixels and 1GB of RAM. It will also lack 4G LTE support. Looking at these rumoured specifications, this device might be targeting consumers who want a phablet-sized phone, but who cannot afford the high prices.
Its larger sibling will come in three variants, one with 3G, one with 4G LTE, and one intended for the China market only. Other than its 6.3'' screen size, no other specifications are known at the time.
Do you think the Galaxy Mega phablets will be successful? Let us know!
