Samsung’s Galaxy Mega stands between a phablet and a tablet

Samsung is putting every brick in its palace for its coronation as king of ‘phablets’, ‘Foneblet?’ phones and tablets. According to rumors, the company is planning to release two devices this year that are a cross between phablets and tablets. The rest of the world believed phablets were the last stage in cross-device evolution but apparently there’s more!

mega2Renamed the Mega from the previous, “Foneblet”, Samsung is planning to release these hybrids in tow models- The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3. When the company had announced its first phablet, much of the tech world was skeptical about the product and critics had written it off as a fantasy device. The Note however took the world by storm and sold millions of units despite users looking funny with a large rectangular device pressed against their face! This time round critics are being cautious about the Mega, whatever it turns out to be, a tablet, phone, phablet or something entirely new. The devices will sport 5.8 inch and 6.3 inch screens. Tech buffs are debating whether the Mega will fall into the high-end or mid-range bracket, but rumored specs point to a mid-tier offering from Samsung. If sources are true, the Mega could be a cellular version of Korea’s Galaxy Player 5.8, a media player in great demand in that nation.

The Mega is expected to have a 960X640 resolution ad dual SIM cards. OS version is Android’s latest however – 4.1 or 4.2. Other specs include a 3 megapixel camera and a 2,500mAh battery.
