Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 7-inch to launch as Galaxy W in South Korea?

A Samsung SM-T2558 cropped up last month as a 7-inch tablet that looked like a phone, leaving us wondering what Samsung was up to with the odd form factor. Well, it looks like the device could be the 7-inch variant of the Galaxy Mega 2 and could be launched as the Galaxy W in South Korea soon, according to a leaked brochure that was emailed to us. According to the brochure, the Galaxy W sports a 7-inch screen and comes with a “Phoneblet UX”, which includes a landscape mode and split-screen function, aka Multi-Window. The device is said to sport a Galaxy Note 3-like faux leather back, and will launch exclusively on SK Telecom.

There’s no guarantee that the Galaxy W is indeed a 7-inch Galaxy Mega, especially since the phone seems to sport a menu button instead of the recent apps button that Samsung is using on all its latest devices. Specs for the SM-T2558 - a 720p display, quad-core 1.2GHz processor (probably a Snapdragon 400), 1.5GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, and 8GB of storage expandable via a microSD slot – are quite similar to what we’ve seen on the original Galaxy Mega series, but factors like that menu button and the fact that the SM-T2558 was certified while running Android 4.3 certainly make for a confusing situation.

Here’s hoping more details pop up in the near future to clear things up.

    In my opinion this doesn’t make sense as the 2nd gen mega, but it makes perfect sense as an lte variant of the tab 4 7 inch…it even carries the same naming structure t25xx. The size, specs, and jump from the mega 6.3 just doesn’t add up…typically the 2nd generation is an improvement which this is not…The mega 6.3 is already equally speced as this 7 inch low end tab imo
