It’s no secret that Samsung’s secret to success at the top of the Android pile is a result of saturating every single price point with one or two of their devices. However, after hearing of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, quite frankly I think it’s getting ridiculous. 5 inch screens are barely pocketable while 7 inch screens are just large enough to appreciate comics and web articles in portrait mode or full-sized magazines in landscape. So who in their right minds would think of picking up the Samsung Galaxy Mega and its 6.3 inch screen? I can’t imagine, but if you’ve been thinking of picking up a phablet that’s more oversized than usual or a tablet that’s slightly more portable, taking a peak at the confirmed Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 specs might help.
The appropriately named Galaxy Mega 6.3 will sport a 6.3 inch (duh!) PLS HD screen coupled with a 1.7GHz dual core processor and 1.5GHz of RAM. You’ll also be getting dual cameras, 8mp at the primary shooter and 2mp for the front, all powered by a 3,200mAh battery. The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is expected to come in two main variants, one with LTE and one without.
There’ll also be two variants of the Galaxy 6.3, one with LTE (GT-9205) and one without (GT-i9200). In case you’re wondering about the rest of the connectivity options, this is a Samsung phone with mid-tier specs, so expect it to come with most of the options you would need, including Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS.
Oh, and in the off-chance that you’re looking for a slightly smaller mid-range phone, there’s the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 that you should look forward to as well. Interestingly enough, the 6.3 inch variant comes in at a thinner 7.9mm in thickness while the Galaxy Mega 5.8 is 9.7mm thick.
While I mock these ridiculous screen sizes for a couple of devices that are clearly to be used as phones, this is actually a smart move by Samsung to saturate the market with large screen options all the way up to tablet territory. After all, the market is still in a love affair with large screens, and the Galaxy Mega duo will actually be quite affordable compared to flagship phones that are expected to come in within the year. Question is, will you be getting one?
