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.
