The Samsung Galaxy Mega has been out in the world for a while now and many suspected it would not be coming to the US, but after two months delay, AT&T has finally grabbed the phone on their service.
For those that don’t remember, the Galaxy Mega is a 6.3-inch phablet from Samsung. This pushes the Galaxy Note down a notch, to the second largest smartphone in the Samsung lineup.
Even with the huge screen specs, the rest of the phone is mid-range, with a 720p AMOLED screen, dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The Galaxy Mega does come with expandable storage and a removable battery, for users who want more storage and battery life.
At $149.99, it is just above the normal price for a mid-range device and we would estimate a little too high for a normal mid-range smartphone. However, with the 6.3-inch screen, it is one of the kind in the US right now, with the Xperia Z Ultra and Huawei Ascend Mate still not in the US.
The HTC One Max will be coming out soon, with recent rumours saying it should be revealed at IFA for a launch at the end of September. This will be a real challenger to the Galaxy Mega, with high-end internals and the HTC One’s incredible design aesthetic.
