Rumors about Samsung releasing a new phablet keep coming as there is a new report about the alleged Samsung Galaxy Mega that will have a 6.3-inch display.
The report is coming from Sam Mobile, and according to the online publication, the 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega is going to be released in mid-May, just before the 5.8-inch Samsung rumored device. Apart from the release date we also have a set of alleged technical specifications, which have not been confirmed of course, thus nothing is set in stone yet.
Looking at the specs of the Galaxy Mega, we can tell that it will certainly not be a high-end handset, and it’s probably meant especially for the emerging markets. Plus, Samsung already has the Galaxy Note line and there is no point in launching a similar phablet. However, the 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega seems to have better hardware than the 5.8-incher. So, the 6.3-inch display will come with a pixel resolution of 1280 x 720 and it will be powered by a dual-core processor, though we still don’t know which brand. The CPU is clocked at 1.7 GHz, so we hope it will be the Exynos 5250. Besides the processor, the device will sport a 1.5 GB of RAM and a decent 3200 mAh battery.
The Galaxy Mega will also boast an 8 MP primary camera located on the back of the phone and a 2 MP front-facing one. In terms of connectivity, the handsets will come along with the basics, namely GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, while the 4G connectivity will be optional. As for the operating system, it will probably run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, if not Android 4.2.. On top of that we expect that the Galaxy Mega will come with the Nature UX.
Even though there aren’t any leaked images featuring the smartphone, it is said that it will be 7.9 thick, which is 1.5 thinner that the Galaxy Note 2.
There is no word about pricing, but when we’ll have more details, we will certainly share them with you.
