Samsung's 7in Galaxy W to launch in Korea; is this the Galaxy Mega 7.0?

Samsung's 7in Galaxy W to launch in Korea; is this the Galaxy Mega 7.0?Remember the Samsung Galaxy W? No, me neither, but that's no surprise considering the ridiculous number of Galaxy devices that have come and gone since it was knocking about the scene three years ago.

Anyway, the point is there's a new Galaxy W in town – at least, in Korean towns anyway – and it seems to be the potential Galaxy Mega 7.0 we were musing about last month.

At the time we were furnished with a detailed set of quite mediocre specs for a device known as the Samsung Galaxy SM-T2558. However, SamMobile now adds that the phone in question is destined to launch as the Galaxy W exclusive to SK Telecom in South Korea.

Disappointed? You probably shouldn't be, since it really isn't anything particularly special by the looks of things. The mammoth 7in display only has a 720p resolution, while the processor is a quad-core 1.2GHz unit (probably a Snapdragon 400).

The unremarkable spec sheet also reveals 1.5GB of RAM to be on board, along with 8MP/2MP cameras and a measly 8GB of storage (mercifully there's a microSD card slot, too).

Apparently it will run Samsung's Phoneblet UX, which includes a full landscape mode down to the homescreen, and split-screen multitasking.

The fact that the Galaxy W is a Korean exclusive doesn't rule it out from launching closer to home under a different name – i.e. the Galaxy Mega 7.0 – so maybe this is one to look out for at Samsung's Premiere 2014 Event next month.
