A slip of the tongue: Galaxy S4 Mega leaks out, Samsung confirms S4 Mini and S4 Active
We’ve been hearing about all sorts of Samsung Galaxy S4 variations - a rugged handset, a more compact one, and what not. But while those were all rumors, now we have something that is coming straight from Samsung and it looks like an unofficial confirmation of the existence of these handsets.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mega, S4 Mini and S4 Active were all listed as supported devices in an update for Samsung’s WatchON TV control service.

And while we’ve already heard about the S4 Mini and S4 Active, this is the first time we get to see the Galaxy S4 Mega name appear. Samsung has already released its Mega 5.8 and Mega 6.3, devices with supersized screens and mid-end specs, but this looks to be a totally different handset.

As to the other two, rumors agree that the S4 Mini will be a 4.3-inch qHD device with an 8-megapixel camera and the S4 Active is expected to be the same as the original S4 but with water and dust protection. With so many leaks floating around, those devices should definitely get official soon.

you sure you read the article properly?? "Samsung has already released its Mega 5.8 and Mega 6.3, devices with supersized screens and mid-end specs, but this looks to be a totally different handset." the gsmarena preview is the galaxy mega 6.3 not the s4 mega..

Quit your b itching. A few years ago everyone was knocking Apple cuz there was only one size for the iPhone now the same trolls are complaining about too many sizes for the galaxy line. You guys just need to whine about something cuz you didnt get enough boobie from momma when you were babies...

Pretty cool looking. I hope it's legit. I've never cared for that style of hardware buttons, similar to what they had on the Droid Charge, but it's good to see that they are trying something at least a little different.
