Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 now only coming in July

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 now only coming in JulyYou may recall the colossal Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 – how could you forget it? – and you may also recall it was originally tagged with a May on-sale date.

Well, May is already half-gone, and it looks like the second half of the month won't see anything change, as it seems the Galaxy Mega will now only be turning up in July.

That's according to Carphone Warehouse's “Coming Soon” page, which was spotted by The Inquirer, who shared the news with the wider world.

We have no idea what's behind the delay, though it's speculated that Samsung's attention has been focused heavily on the rollout of the flagship Galaxy S4 and the Mega has simply been pushed down its list of priorities.

It'll certainly be interesting to see just how popular the Galaxy Mega turns out to be. The original Galaxy Note proved a surprise hit when it was first launched 18 months ago, at a time when the idea of 5in+ display sizes seemed a little ludicrous.

So who's to say we won't react with similar enthusiasm when the Galaxy Mega's near-tablet sized screen smacks down on the shelves in a couple of months' time?

Aside from its big screen, which has only a 720p resolution rather than the 1080p that's become the norm on 5in-class displays

The processor is a dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon 400, there's 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB or 16GB of storage, an 8MP camera with 1.9MP front-facing.

There's no indication what the Galaxy Mega will cost when it does eventually get here, but with no unique selling point like the Galaxy Note I'd be surprised if the Mega can match its success.

It's a mid-range device with a massive display. I don't see who it's really aimed at...

Fair point, without a price you might as well order a N2 and hope for the best :p.
