Samsung Goes Mega with Two Huge Handsets
Samsung today introduced the Galaxy Mega line, two new smartphones that stretch the upper limits of the "phablet" category, but aren't as high-end as the Galaxy Note II. The two Mega devices share many features, with the main difference between them being screen size. One has a 6.3-inch display, and the other has a 5.8-inch display. Both the Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Mega 5.8 run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and are chock full of Samsung's TouchWiz software and applications. Some of the apps on board include Story Album, S Travel, ChatON, IR Blaster, S Translator, Drama Shot, AirView, and Group Play. Other shared features include 8-megapixel main cameras with 1.9-megapixel user-facing cameras; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, GLONASS, NFC, and MHL; support for microSD cards up to 64GB and 1.5GB of RAM; and sensors such as accelerometer, proximity, and geomagnetic (compass).
- Mega 6.3: Hardware features that set the Mega 6.3 apart include its larger, HD screen, 1.7GHz dual-core processor, support for LTE and HSPA+, 3200mAh battery, and 8/16GB internal storage options.
- Mega 5.8: This slightly smaller handset has a qHD display, 1.4GHz dual-core processor, support for HSPA+, 2600mAh battery, and 8GB of internal storage.
