We have been hearing about Samsung working on a new Galaxy Mega device and now the company has officially listed it on its Thai website. The 6-inch Galaxy Mega 2 can now be purchased in Thailand through this website and since it has been officially listed, we get to find out just exactly what the Galaxy Mega 2 is packing under the hood.
Coming in at 163.6 x 84.9 x 8.6 mm the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 has a 6-inch display with 720×1280 pixel resolution. Its no surprise that the display is this big given that it replaces last year’s Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Mega 5.8.
It is powered by a 1.5GHz quadcore processor, presumably Samsung’s own Exynos chip though this hasn’t been confirmed by the company yet, aided by 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage expandable via microSD cards. There’s an 8 megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 2.1 megapixel front facing camera.
Powered by Android 4.4 KitKat the Galaxy Mega 2 also has software features offered by some of the company’s flagship devices such as the Ultra Power Saving Mode. Samsung hasn’t said at this point in time if the Galaxy Mega 2 will be released in markets across North America and Europe, for the time being it appears to be limited to Asia only.
