Samsung launched two new touchscreen-enabled phablets in South Korea on April 11.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega comes in a 5.8-inch and a 6.3-inch model and will each run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean powered by dual core processors.
JK Shin, Head of Samsung mobile Division, said: “We are aware of a great potential in the bigger screen for extensive viewing multimedia, web browsing, and more. We are excited to provide another choice to meet our consumers’ varying lifestyles, all while maintaining the high-quality features of the award-winning Galaxy series.”
In addition to the 6.3-inch display, the Galaxy Mega 6.3-inch model features a 8MP camera, a 1.9MP front-facing camera, microSD card support up to 64GB as well as a choice of 8GB or 16GB of internal storage. The 5.8-inch version has the same basic features except that it’s only available with 8GB of internal storage.
Samsung plans to ship the Mega models to Europe and Russia beginning in May but declined to divulge the pricing.
