Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 leak shows a different set of specs

Samsung is preparing yet another one of its gigantic contraptions, that much is known. But what the Galaxy Mega 2 will bring to the table is still a bit of a mystery. A new leaked photo gives us a glimpse of the giant once again, but it is noticeably different from the specs we've seen before.

The details we've gathered from TENAA certification reveal a 6-inch beast with a 720p resolution screen. It is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and paired with 2 GB of RAM. Internal storage is capped at 8 GB. The two cameras on this version of the specs measure 13 megapixels and 5 megapixels on the rear and front, respectively.

This new set of components differ slightly but still comes with the same 6-inch 720p display. The processor has been swapped out with a relatively unknown Pega Pro quad-core chip, said to be running at 1.5 GHz, while memory has been taken down a small notch, now at 1.5 GB only. The cameras have also been downgraded, left at 8 megapixels on the back and 2.1 megapixels for selfies and video chat. Interestingly, there is more storage space, which now measures 16 GB.

There is a plausible explanation for this discrepancy. Samsung has been known to out at least two variants of a device with slightly different specs, depending on the region. That said, this tactic will be quite new to the Galaxy Mega, which previously had two very different models, one with a 6.3-inch screen and another with only 5.8 inches. It is somewhat reassuring that this time, Samsung will be sticking to the same 6-inch size for both variants. All that's left now is to find out which of the two will be landing in the US, a detail that might be revealed in IFA 2014 next month.
