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.[via SamMobile]
