Meet the 6-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega 2

Meet the 6-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega 2
Samsung is getting ready to launch a successor to the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3 from last year: a new device that should be called Galaxy Mega 2. While we heard about it several times before, it’s only now that we get to see what the handset looks like, as we discovered it in the database of China’s Telecommunications Equipment Certification Center, alongside most of its specs.

The Mega 2 that showed up in China carries the model number SM-G7508Q, and supports the country’s TD-LTE standard - so it will likely be released by China Mobile soon. Even so, we expect the international version of the device to be similar to the SM-G7508Q.

We previously reported that the new Mega would feature a 5.9-inch display. In fact, its screen is a 5.98-inch one (with 720 x 1280 pixels), thus Samsung will almost certainly advertise the handset as a 6-inch one. Having a display (and a name) like that, the Galaxy Mega 2 is obviously a very large device, measuring 163.6 x 84.9 x 8.6 mm.

The Mega 2 is powered by a 64-bit capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. Other features include Android 4.4 KitKat, a 5 MP front-facing camera, a 13 MP rear camera with flash, 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, and microSD card support.

Last month, a Galaxy Mega 2 SM-G750A visited the FCC, so we’re expecting Samsung to launch the giant smartphone in the US at some point. We still don’t know when the Mega 2 is going to be officially announced, though we assume that it will happen soon. We will let you know when more details about this are available.
