Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Mega 5.8 now official, launching in May with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on board
According to Samsung, the motivation behind these huge devices is that they can “offer the latest smartphone features with an extensive viewing experience.” Both run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and come with a slew of Samsung-specific software features, including: S Translator, Samsung Link, ChatON, WatchON, S Memo, S Planner, S travel, and Story Album. In case you’re wondering, they don’t come with S Pen styluses (after all, they’re not Galaxy Notes).
Weighing 199 grams and measuring 167.6 x 88 x 8.0 mm, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 offers a 6.3 inch display with 1280 x 720 pixels, LTE connectivity, NFC, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, GPS with Glonass, Bluetooth 4.0, 8MP rear camera, 1.9MP front-facing camera, 1.5GB of RAM, dual-core 1.7GHz processor, 8GB / 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card slot, and a 3,200 mAh battery.
The Galaxy Mega 5.8 measures 162.6 x 82.4 x 9.0 mm, weighs 182 grams, and comes with a qHD (960 x 540 pixels) display. It doesn’t have LTE (only HSPA+), its processor is a dual-core 1.4GHz one, and there’s only 8GB of internal memory. Also, the battery is a 2,600 mAh one.
The Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Mega 5.8 will be available in May, first in Europe and Russia. Samsung did not unveil their prices, but the larger Mega 6.3 will certainly be the most expensive among the two.
