Samsung to drop Galaxy Mega with a 6.3inch screen – coming to UK in May!

It has been rumoured for a while now but Samsung has today confirmed that it will drop a pair of large screen phones called The Galaxy Mega. The handset will come in two editions – one with a 5.8inch screen – the other with a 6.3inch screen – the biggest screen on a Samsung handset so far.

As you’d expect both are stacked out with high-end facilities. They will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update features a host of software enhancements some of which are also on the Galaxy S4 – like Multi-window, Group Play, WatchON, Air View, Samsung Link, S Translator, S Travel, Story Album.

Of the two the Galaxy Mega 6.3 not only comes with a bigger – 6.3-inch HD (720p) TFT screen- it also has a faster 1.7GHz dual-core processor and is LTE )4G compatible). Other specs include 1.5GB RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 8MP rear and 1.9MP front-facing cameras, 8 or 16GB internal memory, microSD card slot and 3200mAh battery.

The Galaxy Mega 5.8 has 5.8-inch display with HD resolution with a 1.4GHz dual-core CPU, HSPA+ as opposed to LTE. The other specs are fairly similar though it does have a less powerful 2600mAh battery.

It sounds like they are the net gen versions of the Galaxy Note, but without the stylus.
