Samsung Announces Super-Sized Galaxy Mega 5.8 & Galaxy Mega 6.3


Samsung has today announced the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and the Galaxy Mega 6.3, two super-sized smartphones that make the Galaxy Note II look rather small. Both devices look similar to the new Galaxy S4, but their internal specifications are nowhere near as impressive.

The Galaxy Megas are more entry-level to midrange devices, with dual-core processors, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8-megapixel cameras. They do run the latest Android 4.2 operating system, however, and they have built-in infrared blasters that’ll let you control your television and other devices.

The Galaxy Mega 5.8 has a 5.8-inch display — as you might have guessed — which boasts a qHD (960×540) resolution. It also packs a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, HSPA connectivity, and 8GB of storage. The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is a little more advanced, with a 6.3-inch 720p display, a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, LTE connectivity, and 8GB or 16GB of internal storage.

In addition to 8-megapixel cameras, IR blasters, a 1.5GB of RAM, both devices offer a microSD card slot that’ll let you expand your storage space by up to 64GB. And because they run Jelly Bean and Samsung’s latest TouchWiz interface, both should have a number of the Galaxy S4’s new software features.

One thing the Galaxy Megas do not have, however, is an S Pen stylus.

UberGizmo managed to get an early look at the Galaxy Mega 6.3, and they published the photo below to give you an idea of its size. That device on the left… that’s the Galaxy Note II.


Samsung hasn’t yet announced pricing for these devices, but the company has said that they’ll both be available in Europe next month before rolling out across the globe.
