Samsung Galaxy Mega is Official: a 5.8 and 6.3 inch Phablets Selling in UK

It is now official – the Samsung galaxy mega, a 6.3 inch monster, is now official and will be landing in the UK stores first.  This new phablet is basically a Samsung Galaxy S4 features all put on a larger build device – larger than the Note II.  Although the Samsung Galaxy S4 is a much anticipated device and may just have some of the most high end features in a smartphone, the Galaxy Mega on the other hand may have a larger screen than the Note II and an impressive processor, the Galaxy Mega may just be a disappointment in the long run because it may not have a comfortable place in the market considering that Samsung has already announced a 5 inch smartphone and will most likely launch a 6 inch Galaxy Note III mini-tablet.  The 6.3 inch Galaxy Mega is somewhere between a smartphone and a tablet.


The Samsung Galaxy tablet may have very impressive specs including an impressive processor, a HD display on the 6.3 inch screen, though with a very low display density of 190 pixels per square inch (PPI).

The Galaxy Mega comes after Huawei became the first to come up with a device with an unusual screen size that is smaller than a mini-tablet’s but larger than a smartphone’s.  Huawei’s Ascend Mate with a 6.1 inch screen however has a low 960 x 540 pixels resolution.  The Galaxy Mega has a High Definition screen with a 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, 8 megapixels rear and 1.9 megapixels front camera, a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor and a choice of 8 and 16GB onboard memory.  Samsung have also launched a smaller Galaxy Mega with a 5.8 inch and the same specifications as the larger 6.3 inch Galaxy Mega.

Other specs of both Galaxy Megas are 1.5 GB RAM, WiFi, USB, 4G LTE capability and a memory card slot for memory expansion up to 64GB.  The phones will come with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box and features on the S4 including an in-built infrared remote control, multi-window multi-tasking screen feature, an S-Translator and runs just like the S4.
