Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 previewed ahead of official announcement
Although Samsung has yet to officially announce the Galaxy Mega 2, it looks like some retailers have already started selling the device in Malaysia and Thailand. Thus, it didn’t take long for a preview of the new Galaxy to show up.

Droid Sans (a Thai website) is the one that previewed the Galaxy Mega 2, allowing us to take a better look at the extra-large device. As we reported earlier this month, the Mega 2 is the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3. Size-wise, the new handset sits between the two older models, sporting a 6-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels.

Running Android 4.4.4 KitKat, the Mega 2 offers mid-range features, including LTE, a quad-core Exynos 4415 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz, 1.5 GB of RAM, expandable internal memory, and a 2800 mAh removable battery. It appears that the Mega 2 variant that’s been previewed in Thailand features an 8 MP rear camera, though the Chinese version of the handset may come with a 13 MP shooter. In any case, the camera seems to produce pretty good photos - you can see samples below.

The Galaxy Mega 2 reportedly costs around $425, and it should be available in more markets soon, coming in two color versions: black and white. Well, we’re waiting to get our own hands on the handset for a full review. Until then, feel free to check out the Mega 2 in the slideshow below.
