The long rumored Samsung Galaxy Mega product family has just been made official. As expected, there are two devices in the Mega portfolio, the Mega 5.8 and the Mega 6.3. Starting with the larger model, it has a 6.3 inch 720p TFT display, a dual core 1.7 GHz processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera, and a massive 3,200 mAh battery. In terms of dimensions, SamMobile nailed them: 88 mm × 167.6 mm × 8.0 mm. The whole thing weighs 199 grams.
As for the Mega 5.8 (pictured above), it has a 5.8 inch qHD (960 x 540 pixel) TFT panel. Under the hood there’s a 1.4 GHz dual core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera, and a seemingly tiny 2,600 mAh battery. Some perspective: The battery in the GS4 has the same capacity.
When will these devices come out? Next month in Europe and Russia, no clue with respect to other territories. How much will they cost? It’s a Samsung press release, so it’s not mentioned.
Update: Ubergizmo got their hands on a Mega 6.3. Here’s how it looks next to the 5.5 inch Note II.
