Is China the primary market for Samsung's latest Android smartphones?
In addition to the Mega 6.3 and 5.8, Samsung has also introduced the Galaxy Win, Trend II, Trend Duos II and the Galaxy Star, which is going to be the cheapest Android model of all these. Now, most of these products have some very humble specs compared to the beasts we enjoy dealing with, like the Galaxy S4, for example, but this is the kind of stuff that sells well in China at the moment. Obviously, there's an increasing demand for smartphones with very big screens, but not for premium ones, so the Megas fit nicely here with their gigantic screens and mid-range specs.
It's understandable why Samsung is eying the Chinese market. The company has seen a 153% increase in sales for the last year, which is a very promising figure. And since the Chinese market is still classified as an emerging one, Samsung has all the reasons it needs in order to focus its efforts in that direction.

And India too.
Samsung has become a huge name there, and the notes, aces and youngs (pun intended) have all done extremely well.
They are markets in which not everyone needs top of the line products. They just need decent smartphone choices at an affordable price. Of course, this is assuming that the "Megas" will be priced appropriately.
