Only a week back we brought the leaks about the two ‘mega’ sized phablets from the best in the business, Samsung and here we are with an official note regarding the announcement of the two Galaxy Mega series phablets, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Galaxy Mega 5.8. It seems that Sammy has finally declared the handsets to go official which does seems a bit like a decision made in a bit of haste if you consider the run which the Galaxy Grand Duos is enjoying all round the globe. But who knows! A bit of company to the already successful handset can also yield out gold for the manufacturer.
Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3
First up is the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 which does seems to be a bit over-sized to be called even a phablet and besides that, it does carries forward some of the galaxy s4 legacy up on it’s face which makes it to be placed at the higher end of the hierarchy. As the name goes, the device will feature a huge 6.3 inches of display estate upfront upon the 720p resolution to light it up. The Giant phablet will be powered by the Exynos 5250 chipset that first debuted on the Google Nexus 10. The robust chipset boasts two cortex A-15 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz and will be coupled along a nice 1.5 Gigabytes of RAM that’ll enhance the further user experience upon the bundled Samsung S-Apps upon Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The handset will also take down the Air View technology from the Galaxy S4 and also the Multi-Window functionality that allows the user to switch to a split-screen viewing mode so as to work upon two applications on the same screen, simultaneously. Further, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 has got an 8Megapixel snapper at the back and a 1.9 Megapixel unit upfront and will enjoy a full-fledged connectivity suite and Group Play alongside an IR emitter that’ll help the device to hook up with your electronic devices as a remote/controller. Further, the battery pack is rated at a generous 3200 mAh and the device will ship in three variants i.e. the 16 GB/32 GB/64 GB models.
Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8
On the other hand, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 will boasts a 5.8” display which is still bigger than any other phablet in the current market, save for it’s only bigger sibling, the Mega 6.3. The 5.8” display will be lit up by a count of 960 x 540 pixels while it’ll be an LCD unit. Further, the chipset does remains the same but the clock speed has been pulled down to 1.4 Ghz which still sounds zippy. Further, there won’t be any high speed connectivity options on board like the LTE or Wi-Fi 802.11 ac connectivity and even the IR emitter is gone. Meanwhile, this will surely be a better deal to slip into the pockets of at least those who didn’t faced any problems in going along the Galaxy Note II. The battery pack is a 2600 mAh which is still juicy enough to make a full day out on a single charge.
We still do not have any words on the world-wide availability of the devices, neither on the pricing of the devices so, hang on for more!
