Samsung goes supersized with 6” Galaxy Mega 2 smartphone

Samsung logoSamsung’s Galaxy Note 4 will soon be upon us; the device is scheduled to be unveiled on September 3 in Berlin. The Galaxy Note 4 is confirmed to include a 5.7” QHD display, although other hardware specs are a bit harder to come by at this time (but that will likely change as we approach its official launch).

We’re now learning, courtesy of Phone Arena, that a new Galaxy Mega 2 "phablet" is incoming, and it will feature a 6” display (actually 5.98”) with a screen resolution of 1280x720. The resolution definitely looks meager compared to the 1920x1080 resolution of the 5.1" Galaxy S5 and the 2560x1440 resolution of the 5.1" Galaxy S5 LTE-A.

The processor included within the Galaxy Mega 2 is also a bit on the low-end side, with a 64-bit, 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor powering the device. Other features that round out the smartphone include a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and microSD expansion capabilities.

According to Phone Arena, the Galaxy Mega 2 already made an appearance on the FCC’s website, so we should expect to see it at some point in the near future to appeal to budget-minded consumers that care most about screen size.

It should be noted that the Galaxy Mega 2 isn’t even Samsung’s biggest phablet device: the Galaxy W holds that title with its 7” 720p display.
