Samsung's 6-inch Galaxy Mega 2 officially presented in Asia
Although some folks in Thailand and Malaysia can buy the Galaxy Mega 2 since last month for around $400, it’s only now that Samsung is listing the handset on one of its official websites - namely the Thai one. As a result, we now have official Galaxy Mega 2 images, alongside a list of official features.

The new Mega comes to replace last year’s Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Mega 5.8 - so it’s a very big smartphone, sporting a 6-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and measuring 163.6 x 84.9 x 8.6 mm, obviously being larger than the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (which itself is a very large handset). The Mega 2 has got a 2.1 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording, LTE connectivity, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, 1.5 GB of RAM, and a quad-core 1.5 GHz processor (possibly an Exynos 4415 unit, but Samsung doesn’t confirm this yet). The device runs Android KitKat, seemingly offering most of Samsung’s latest software features - including Ultra Power Saving Mode (for longer battery life), and One-handed operation mode (quite useful on a screen that large).

For the moment, we don’t know if Samsung is planning to sell the Mega 2 in other regions (like North America and Europe). However, since the previous Galaxy Mega models are widely available around the world, we expect the new one to be released in lots of markets, too. We’ll let you know when we have more details about this.

Remember how Apple photoshopped the protruding camera?
Last photo is too, so it looks smaller

I still love and prefer the screen of last year's Mega 6.3 over this one 6 inch only. If you own and experience Mega 6.3 then you wont like 6 inches screen of this phone.

If it's a SAMSUNG midrange no matter how BIG it is, it's gotta be 720p and 1.5 Gb of RAM

for $400 Dollars

720p is unacceptable at that size even for a mid-ranger...

I think this phone is great for people who want a phablet kinda phone but can't afford the note series.

Looks nice. Screw the haters. They're just here to hate. Got no life but to come here to hate I see.
That aside, I think they should of at least made it 6.3" with smaller bezels. Big phones are awesome, like Note 3, Note 4, Mega 5.8, Mega 6.3, and Tab Q.
