Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Headed for UK in May

By - Source: Pocket-Lint | B 14 comments

One out of two aint bad, right?

Samsung surprised us all with the announcement of two new smartphones. Both phones carry the 'Galaxy Mega' moniker and are hefty phones, even by Samsung's standards, with the Galaxy Mega 5.8 featuring a 5.8-inch display and the Galaxy Mega 6.3 featuring (you guessed it) a 6.3-inch display.

 

While Samsung was happy to talk specs, the company didn't go into much detail on release dates except to say the phones would launch in Europe first. Well, Samsung UK has apparently confirmed to Pocket-lint that the Galaxy Mega 6.3 will hit the United Kingdom in mid-May. Unfortunately, it seems the smaller of the two phones, the Galaxy Mega 5.8, won't be launching in the UK at all.

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 inch features an HD display (most likely 1280 x 720), a 1.7 GHz dual core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, LTE & HSPA radios, GPS, GLONASS, up to 64 GB of storage via microSD, either 8 GB or 16 GB of onboard storage, and a 3,200 mAh to keep the whole thing running.

Still no word on pricing for either phone, but we'll keep you posted.

    Let's get pedantic: It's the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 3G now. I don't think you'll find any of the original tabs anymore.

    I hope these are priced more reasonable for unlocked versions. I mean the Note 2 was $600 on Newegg. Being that I just saw an article on here a few weeks ago where Asus is supposed to have a 7" version (Fonepad) for $250.

    Bigger than the Note 2 with basically the same specs. Better off waiting for the Note 3 this Fall. 1080p 6 inch foldable screen, 8 core CPU @ 2Ghz. 4gb of ram, 16mp camera. Better wait.

    A nice idea, but 5 inches is more than enough for my needs.

    Sorry Samsung, slapping a bigger screen on phones does not grab my attention.
