Samsung leak reveals the 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega

Samsung appears to be living in a world where bigger means better in terms of smartphones. Of course, given their success with the Galaxy Note lineup, that statement sort of rings true. Looking forward though, it is now looking like Samsung will be announcing two new devices that will make the Galaxy Note II seem a bit smaller.

These new devices are the Galaxy Mega and were previously known as the Galaxy Fonblet. According to the latest leaks, the Samsung Mega lineup will consist of the GT-i9152 and the GT-i9200. Those devices will have a 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch display size respectively. The interesting part here, the 6.3-inch display was what we have previously heard for the Galaxy Note III.

Keeping with 6.3-inches on the high-end and we also know that this will be compatible with the Samsung GamePad. These Galaxy Mega devices are expected to be announced later in the year and in various colors. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 (GT-i9152) is expected to arrive around the end of May. Specifically, this one was pegged for week 22, which would be May 27, 2013.

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is said to be coming around the 25th week of the year, which would mean a date of June 17, 2013. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 will be available in white with the Galaxy Mega 6.3 arriving in black and white. The interesting part here will be to see where these Galaxy Mega devices will fit in with the current Samsung lineup.

We have already seen the Galaxy S, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab series and this Mega line seems like it will cross over, or come close in size to other devices. That bit seems to imply that Samsung would have a specific purpose in mind for the Galaxy Mega devices. Time will tell the full story, but for now it seems like these leaks are early and we obviously still have plenty to learn.

      Agreed, it sounds funny to me as well. The others; S, Note and Tab all seem to be a bit more fitting to the device.

    Samsung Mega – Are you sure this isn’t an April Fool left over from Yesterday?

  • Aleem Qureshi

    This is honestly getting absurd. if this is true phones are getting way too large, personally i feel a 5inch phone is perfectly acceptable and anything bigger than the note 2 at 5.5 inches is just absurd. If this trend continues people are going to be holding full size 10inch tablets upto their ears. I get that people are trying to move from having multiple devices to having one device that fits all their needs.. but come on

      There is nothing absurd when you talk about options.
      I used to use a GS3 but since I have a Note 2 anything under 5.5″ look too tiny, but it is just preference.
      Samsung can make any size they wants that is nothing wrong or absurd, they are just offering options and there will be someone that really will appreciate that.
