Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Now Available On U.S. Cellular


Samsung’s latest handset, the mammoth 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega, has been available in both Europe and Asia for the past couple of months now, and it recently launched in the U.S. on AT&T. And now, U.S. Cellular has announced that it will start selling the Mega 6.3, as from today.

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is a mid-to-high range Android phablet, packing a humongous 6.3-inch 720 LCD display, a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 3,200 mAh removable battery.

U.S. Cellular customers can order the Galaxy Mega 6.3 from the carrier’s online store today, for the one-off fee of $149.99 on a two-year contract after an ‘instant rebate.’ Whereas, those wishing to pick up the handset at their nearest bricks-and-mortar store will have to wait another couple of days until September 19, and will be offered the same pricing deal.

At this precise moment in time, the network is only offering the device in “Nova Black,” but rumors suggest that it will be receiving inventory of the other colors some time in the very near future.
