Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Hits FCC, Heading to AT&T Soon
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 has just been announced recently, and the device has already showed up at the FCC. The model features AT&T+ bands.
Nevertheless, the model number GT-I9200 is just the HSPA+ variant, meaning that unlike the GT-I9205, this model won’t have support for 4G LTE connectivity. Even tough, the Galaxy Mega was unveiled a couple of weeks ago, the handset is not to be considered a flagship smartphone, because it comes with mid-range hardware. The phone sports a 6.3-inch screen and is meant specially for those who own a smartphone and a tablet and want to carry a single device. The Galaxy Mega 6.3 provides a big screen as well as the standard features that can be found on any other phone.
Except for the size of the screen, we should also mention that it has a resolution of 1280 x 720, which is pretty decent for s device that we expect to have a decent price. The Galaxy Mega is underpinned by a dual-core CPU clocked at 1.7 GHz, it packs 1.5 GHz of RAM and comes it two versions depending on the amount of on-board storage, 8/16 GB. It also has support for microSD card for those who want to further expand the storage space, an 8 MP rear-facing camera and a 1.9 MP secondary shooter. In terms of connectivity, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 will support Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, HSPA+, LTE, GPS, IR, and NFC. As for the OS, the smartphone will come running the latest iteration of android available, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, that will come along with Samsung’s own TouchWiz user interface.
The company has held a press release and announced that the Galaxy Mega 6.3 will be available in Europe, but it didn’t mention anything about the handset’s availability on the United States. Even though the current GT-I9200 version that has been spotted at the FCC seems like it’s made to be compatible with AT&T, we’re not sure if the device will be sold by the mobile operator in the near future, mostly because it does not have support for 4G LTE.
Apart from the Galaxy Mega 6.3, the South Korean manufacturer has also announced a smaller model called the Galaxy Mega 5.8.
