SamMobile confirms second-generation Samsung Galaxy Mega lineup


Last updated: March 26th, 2014 at 11:07 UTC+01:00

The Galaxy Note series has been a major success ever since the first Galaxy Note was launched, thanks to the big-yet-usable screen and its productivity features. Driven by the popularity of the Galaxy Note, Samsung launched the Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Galaxy Mega 5.8 as options for those looking for a large screen phone at a mid-range price, and it looks like the Mega series, despite the outlandish display sizes, has been a hit, as Samsung is working on bringing out the second generation of Galaxy Mega devices.

Details are scarce at the moment, but we’ve received information that the upcoming Galaxy Mega devices will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos processor, likely a hexa-core model as seen on the Galaxy Note 3 Neo, which would make them a tad more powerful than the original Mega series. It should also run on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, though when it comes to the screen size, we’ll have to wait for more info to pop up – there probably won’t be much of a change in this regard, especially on the higher-end model, as it was already bordering on being a tablet at 6.3-inches on the first-generation Galaxy Mega.

For Samsung, the Galaxy Mega series has been something of an experience, with the company pushing screen size in an attempt to see how people embrace it. Hopefully, Samsung learned enough from the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3 and will put that knowledge to good use in the next generation of Mega (both in name and size) smartphones.
