It was Tuesday this week that we last wrote about the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Galaxy Mega 5.8, but we didn’t realise just how close Samsung was to launching the gargantuan duo.
Both the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 (right) and Galaxy Mega 5.8 (left) arrive as expected, which means they’re utterly drowning in Samsung features, with fairly modest spec sheets.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Galaxy Mega 5.8 are of course Samsung’s largest smartphones to date, grabbing the baton from the 5.5in Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
Shared features include Group Play (share content on up to eight devices), Samsung Link (stream content to your TV, tablet and/or computer), and S Translator (pretty much does what it says on the tin).
Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 specs include a 6.3in 720p display, 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8 or 16GB internal storage (with microSD), an 8MP/1.9MP camera combo, Jelly Bean (Android 4.2), and a 3,200mAh battery.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 spec sheet includes a 5.8in display (960 x 540), 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage (with microSD), 8MP/1.9MP rear/front cameras, Jelly Bean (Android 4.2), and a 2,600mAh battery.
We’re told to expect Samsung Galaxy Mega availability in May in Europe, though Samsung notes: “The product availability varies by market and will be rolled out gradually.” Needless to say there’s no mention of price just yet.
