Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 (SM-G7508) specs leak through benchmark
Ever since we confirmed that the second-generation Galaxy Mega line of phones was in the works, we have been waiting for detailed info on the device to show up. Today, a device with model number SM-G7508, which is expected to be the Chinese variant of one of the handsets in the Galaxy Mega 2 series, has shown up in the GFXBench benchmark database, revealing the full list of its specs. According to the benchmark, the Galaxy Mega 2 will have a 5.9-inch screen, which indicates that this is the smaller version of the phone, but with a higher display resolution (720p) than the Galaxy Mega 5.8.
The Galaxy Mega 2 will be powered by the Snapdragon 410 chipset, the first 64-bit chip from Qualcomm that Samsung is supposedly also testing on a low-end device, though there should be an Exynos variant as well if the information we received previously is accurate. Other specs include 2GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 8GB of internal storage. The phone runs on Android 4.4.3, though it will probably launch with Android 4.4.4 out of the box.
Some of those specs seem a bit off, especially the RAM and camera, though it wouldn’t be the first time when a benchmark was not entirely accurate in listing a device’s hardware. There’s no word on when the Galaxy Mega 2 will be officially announced – the original Galaxy Mega was launched in June, but since we’ll be entering July in a few hours (some of you already have), it looks like Samsung won’t be as timely about the launch of the Galaxy Mega’s successor as it is being about the upcoming Galaxy S5 mini.
