Samsung’s 6-inch Galaxy Mega 2 has a 64-bit processor


Samsung looks to be preparing for the launch of the Galaxy Mega 2, a 6-inch smartphone with a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor. The device has already been approved for China Mobile, and its official unveiling is expected soon.

Samsung’s original Galaxy Mega came in two flavors; one had a 5.8-inch display, and the other had a 6.3-inch display. Despite their size, both had midrange, slightly disappointing specifications. This year, the 6-inch (5.98-inch, to be precise) Galaxy Mega 2 is expected to succeed them both, and it’s going to bring significant improvements in almost every way.

PhoneArena, which obtained these images from China’s Telecommunications Equipment Certification Center database, reports that the device is powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage that’s accompanied by a microSD card slot.

The Galaxy Mega 2 is also said to have a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. It will run Android 4.4.4 KitKat, and it will measure 163.6 x 84.9 x 8.6mm.

Given that the Galaxy Mega 2 already has approval in China, it’s expected to make its debut there imminently on China Mobile. The device will almost certainly come to Europe and the U.S. as well, but it’s likely other markets will have to wait.
