Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 pictured with AT&T branding
A tweet sent from evleaks on Saturday reveals a Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 wearing the AT&T brand in a dark blue color. Until recently, the handset offered the largest screen on a smartphone, but that was before the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and its 6.4 inch screen came to market. We actually had a clue that the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 would be coming to AT&T when the device visited the FCC back in June, with the carrier's 4G LTE bands on board.

The 6.3 inch Super Clear LCD display on the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 offers resolution of 720 x 1280. That combination works out to a 233ppi pixel density. A dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor is under the hood with 1.5GB of RAM included. While 8GB of native storage is on board, there is also a 64GB capacity microSD slot on the phone. The 8MP rear-facing camera offers video capture in 1080 x 1920 at 30 fps and there is a front-facing 1.9MP shooter for video chats and to take selfies with. A 3200mAh battery keeps the gerbils spinning on the wheel and Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed with the Nature UX UI running on top of it.

Since this is speculation, we don't have a price or a launch date. If the picture is legit, it looks like the Korean based manufacturer will be playing off the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 against the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III. By the way, for those keeping track, the tweet lists the model number as the SGH-i527 and the name of the phone as the Melius. That is interesting because originally we heard that name in conjunction with a Tizen flavored handset that was expected to launch in the third quarter.

It's a shame that almost everyone wraps their phone in a case. How dare they.

You need to go over your fear of plastics. They are used in many products used by all. Cars use quite a bit of plastic. At least Samsung makes their phones sturdy, unlike certain competitors with their 'premium' builds.

I personally don't mind plastic, it's the glossy coating that bothers me. Not only does it look and feel cheap, but it's a fingerprint magnet as well. Certainly not a deal breaker, but I would much rather do without it and have matte plastic.

Also, Samsung phones are definitely not sturdy, at least not the ones I've used. I think the world you're looking for is "durable". Samsung's phone builds are not premium or sturdy, but they are durable.

Plastic is not bad material for a smartphone, but Samsung's HyperGlazed plastic looks really cheap.

Since Samsung devices have removable backs you can buy 3rd party ones that you like better.

Why does one need a mansion?
Why does one need a Ferrari?
Why does one need a private jet?
Why does one need a bidet?

Nokia US smartphone marketshare 1.2%. World marketshare less than 4%. Perhaps, instead of laughing at other company's successful products, Nokia can try to learn a thing or two from successful companies.

Nice device, took a look at one at cellular super store here in Vegas. A 3rd party retailer, that specializes in unlocked devices. Cool, but way too big.

Dude I have no beef with you, but it's clear what you joined this site to do, and that's start trouble with iOS users. I'm a techie I'm not a fanboy, I'm not gonna go back and forth with you when you decide you wanna pi$$ of iFans like me. One minute you're insulting, the next your cool. Whatever man, have a nice day dude.

Primarily, I was trying to pi$$ off PapaSmurf. But he rarely appeared on here since then.

Too bad I'm too busy enjoying my S3 running 4.2.2 with LiquidSmooth. If your goal was to try and troll me, you're a waste of bandwidth and should log off and never come back. Thanks.

I have nothing against Samsung. And I reached my "goal" successfully, that's why you didn't bother responding, not that you were enjoying whatever you were using. But I didn't join PA just for that.

Already you're pi$$ed off, just look at the second last sentence.
