If 5-inch screen is too small for a phablet and 7-inch is too big, then Samsung has a product for you — Galaxy Mega. Yesterday, the company confirmed that it would release Galaxy Mega on 23 Aug in the U.S.
The Galaxy Mega phablet runs Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) and comes with a very unusual screen size, 6.3-inch. However, the phablet screen offers an HD Super Clear display providing a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. The device features a dual-core Cortex-A15 processor, Mali-T604 GPU and 1.5 GB of RAM. It comes with 16 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 64 GB via an external microSD card. Apart from these, Galaxy Mega has an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash. It also also features 4G LTE connectivity and a removeable 3,200 mAh battery. The Mega will be available in either Nova black or Polaris white color.
U.S. cellular network provider AT&T will start selling this phablet for $149.99 under the standard two-year agreement or $24 a month under the AT&T Next installment plan from this 23 Aug. On the other hand, Sprint and U.S. Cellular also plan to sell the Galaxy Mega, but haven’t yet announced release dates or prices.
