Soon after the specs of Galaxy Mega series phablets leaked online, Samsung has officially announced the launch of Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.8 for global markets. In a press release, the company has noted the the availability of these large display phablets will start from next month in Europe and Russia. There is no word on the Asian availability right now; however we won’t be surprised to see them land in the continent given the popularity of phablets in the Asian markets.
As the specs of the phablets are already known to us, but to remind you, Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 features 5.8-inch display with qHD resolution (960x540p), latest Android v4.2 Jelly Bean, 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 1.5 GB RAM, 8GB internal memory (expandable up to 64GB via microSD card), 8MP rear camera with LED flash support, 2MP front camera and 2600 mAh battery.
On the other hand, running on Android v4.2 Jelly Bean, Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 boasts 6.3-inch larger HD TFT display, 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, 8/16 GB internal memory (expandable up to 64GB via microSD card), and 3200 mAh battery. Like Galaxy Mega 5.8, it also features 2MP front camera and 8MP rear camera with LED flash support.
Both the Galaxy Mega phablets support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and GLONASS. Apart from these, Galaxy Mega 6.3 comes with additional NFC support.
Moreover, featuring slew of sensors, both the phablets include basic
software customizations like Group Play, Samsung WatchOn and S Translator, which were recently introduced in the company’s flagship Galaxy S IV model. They also feature newly introduced features like S Travel, which provides trip information, local guides and resources, and Story Album, that allows users to create albums of daily events, keep special moments in one place using a timeline, geo-tag information and publish digital albums in hard copy features.
