Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is announced, coming to Europe in May

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is announced, coming to Europe in May
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 – a smartphone that just got announced officially after weeks of speculations, truly deserves its name for its among the largest handsets to ever see the light of day. With its 6.3-inch display panel, it overshadows even behemoths like the Samsung Galaxy Note II, LG Optimus G Pro, and the likes. Yet under its hood beats the heart of a mid-range device.

Its screen, despite its massive proportions, has an okay resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. And no, it isn't of the AMOLED kind – we're dealing with an LCD panel here. Providing processing power is a dual-core 1.7GHz processor of make and model that are yet to be announced. The chip is paired with not one, not two, not three, but... 1.5GB of RAM for smooth multitasking performance.

With an 8-megapixel camera on its back, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 should be a decent snapper given the right circumstances, while that 1.9MP front-facing cam will come in handy when you're in the mood for a video chat. There's also 8 or 16 gigs of on-board storage, which can be expanded with the use of a microSD card. A cool perk that you won't see on many smartphones is the IR blaster, which allows one to control TVs and other electronics straight from their Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3. There's also support for LTE network connectivity at up to 100Mbps on the downlink. 

All of that, including the phone's massive 3,200mAh battery, is enclosed in a body that's only 8 millimeters thick. The device, however, is quite heavy tipping the scales at 199 grams. Andorid 4.2 Jelly Bean - the most recent version of the platform, will come loaded on the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 out of the box. 

The exact pricing of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 has not been announced yet, but we'll have more information on the matter by next month. The smartphone is expected to launch in May across Europe and in other markets soon after.

The S4 should've had this design, without the 6.3" stupid screen.

SAMSUNG screwed the Note 8 pricing, I'd expect this one to be no different.

If this phablet is 6.3" then note 3 is going to be 5.9", the gamepad which was announced earlier was meant for mega to fit in 6.3" size and not for note3 ....

The sales of the galaxy mega will determine whether Sammy should keep increasing the size of the phone or not
