But before you go getting all hot and bothered and whipping your wallet out, brace yourselves for the news that the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 ain’t coming to the UK.
Being the smaller of the pair, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 – as current smartphone logic dictates – has slightly more modest specs.
Specifically, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8’s dual-core processor is clocked at 1.4GHz (compared to 1.7GHz on its big bro), with a smaller 2,600mAh battery (vs. 3,200mAh).
However, in real-world terms, the major difference is arguably the lack of a 16GB option (though it does have microSD, to be fair).
As such, we can’t see too many people getting upset about the absence of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 in the UK. The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 will inevitably be more expensive, but why not go the whole hog and really fill your pockets with smartphone beef?
Or, if you absolutely must have the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8, you could always import an EU model from one of the many online mobile retailers.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3’s UK release date has been confirmed as “mid-May” (pricing, conversely, remains elusive). Only one month to wait, baby.
