A new picture of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3
has been discovered, and in this snapshot the Android flavored giant is wearing branding for pre-paid carrier MetroPCS. Without taxing too much of the ol' gray matter, we can conclude that this means that the 6.3 inch handset is joining Metro's line-up. The pre-paid operator was the nation's fifth largest carrier at the time it was acquired earlier this year by the fourth largest carrier in the states, T-Mobile. The model is scheduled to be on MetroPCS shelves before the holiday season kicks off in earnest.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 offers a 6.3 inch screen with resolution of 720 x 1280 and a pixel density of 233ppi. A dual-core 1.7GHz processor is driving the device which has 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage. Thankfully there is a 64GB capacity micro SD slot available for use on the unit. The 8MP snapper on back has HDR and captures video at 1080 x 1920 in 30 fps. There is also a 1.9MP front facing camera that takes selfies and supports video chat. A phone like this needs a powerful battery and Sammy doesn't disappoint here with a 3200mAh cell keeping the lights on. Android 4.2 is pre-installed.
While this appear to be good news for MetroPCS customers, keep in mind that this has not yet been officially announced. In addition, just because the Galaxy Mega has a huge screen, as you can see from the specs it is no Samsung Galaxy Note 3
