Because the 5.55-inch display on the Galaxy Note II just isn’t huge enough, Samsung (005930) is reportedly preparing to launch an even more massive phablet in the coming months. Following up an earlier report, SamMobile claims to have confirmed specs for the upcoming Galaxy Mega 5.8 with an unnamed source. According to the report, the mid-range Galaxy Mega 5.8 will feature 5.8-inch display with 960 x 540-pixel resolution, a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a 2,600 mAh battery and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 is reportedly set to debut in May or June this year ahead of the even larger Galaxy Mega 6.3.
Samsung’s (005930) Galaxy Note phablet lineup is about to see some serious new competition… from Samsung. According to a report from SamMobile, which has a good track record when reporting details about unannounced Samsung products, the South Korean vendor is developing two new supersized smartphones that will launch later this year. Unlike its current phablets, however, these new handsets will fall under Samsung’s popular Galaxy brand and therefore may not include some of the Notes’ more appealing features, such as S Pen stylus support. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 is rumored to feature a 5.8-inch display and it will reportedly launch in late May or early June. Then, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 will seemingly follow in mid to late June with a comically large 6.3-inch touchscreen.
