Man unharmed thanks to ‘bullet-proof’ Samsung Galaxy Mega

Forget the Galaxy S5 Active; the next variant Samsung may want to consider is a bullet-proof one following this news of a man in Taiwan surviving a gunshot to the chest thanks to his plastic Galaxy Mega 6.3. It seems that this is the result of a miscommunication between two parties regarding a lost wallet; the man who was shot seemed to find it and lay claim to it, while the owner wasn’t too happy and may have overreacted. As we can see, the phone was located in the breast pocket and absorbed the full force of the bullet.

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 phablet debuted approximately one year ago running Android 4.2.2 on a 1.7GHz dual-core processor with 1.5GB RAM, LTE support, an 8MP rear camera, a 1.9MP front camera, with microSD card support, and a 3200mAh battery.
