Samsung is purportedly readying a new range of mobiles under the hitherto-unknown Galaxy Mega brand to press home its advantage in the nascent phablet market.
According to Korea’s ETNews, the electronics giant is working on 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega phablets to build on its already massive lead with the hugely successful Galaxy Note line of smartphone-tablet hybrids.
Leaked features of the Galaxy Mega 5.8 include a 5.8-inch qHD (900 x 540) TFT display, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1.5GB of RAM and an eight-megapixel rear camera.
Also said to be on board are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and A-GPS support, a 2,600mAh battery and Android Jelly Bean with Samsung’s Nature UX slathered on top.
The Galaxy Mega 6.3’s rumoured spec sheet, on the other hand, takes in a 6.3-inch PLS HD display, a 1.7GHz dual-core chipset and eight-megapixel shooter.
Elsewhere, it’s mooted to pack a two-megapixel front-facing camera and Android Jelly Bean installed out of the box.
The Galaxy Mega 5.8 also comes with dual-SIM support, which probably suggests it’s intended for emerging markets.
Its larger sibling, meanwhile, will come in black and white variants. However, whether this will be landing in the UK and Europe remains as-yet undetermined.
With any luck, it won’t be long before Samsung officially announces the devices along with release and availability details. So keep ‘em peeled.
