Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 joining MetroPCS lineup?

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 joining MetroPCS lineup?
A new picture of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 has been discovered, and in this snapshot the Android flavored giant is wearing branding for pre-paid carrier MetroPCS. Without taxing too much of the ol' gray matter, we can conclude that this means that the 6.3 inch handset is joining Metro's line-up. The pre-paid operator was the nation's fifth largest carrier at the time it was acquired earlier this year by the fourth largest carrier in the states, T-Mobile. The model is scheduled to be on MetroPCS shelves before the holiday season kicks off in earnest.

The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 offers a 6.3 inch screen with resolution of 720 x 1280 and a pixel density of 233ppi. A dual-core 1.7GHz processor is driving the device which has 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage. Thankfully there is a 64GB capacity micro SD slot available for use on the unit. The 8MP snapper on back has HDR and captures video at 1080 x 1920 in 30 fps. There is also a 1.9MP front facing camera that takes selfies and supports video chat. A phone like this needs a powerful battery and Sammy doesn't disappoint here with a 3200mAh cell keeping the lights on. Android 4.2 is pre-installed.

While this appear to be good news for MetroPCS customers, keep in mind that this has not yet been officially announced. In addition, just because the Galaxy Mega has a huge screen, as you can see from the specs it is no Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

The more options customers have, the better it is for not only them, but also for the carrier.

yes, my thinking is however that Tmo will put its more premium devices on Tmo and put more affordable look alikes on metropcs. otherwise whats the incentive for switching gor existing customers. just a theory

T-Mobile wants Metro PCS users to switch to their network for obvious reasons. Can't blame T-Mo if they want to knock down garbage Sprint from #3 in the US.

Still would never consider a phone with 6.3" screen as my next phone. Simply put it, i have no use for it. However, I do see a lot of application could be used for this phone and meanly I could think of more in the commercial and industrial usage.

1) That article has NOTHING to do with this article. 2) You can find the exact same article on other websites. Check Pocketnow or GSMarena and it should still be there.

I work for MetroPCS and I feel that this phone will most likely be too large for the main crowd... We sell a Blu phone here at our retailer that has a 5.7 inch display much like the note 3 and it doesn't sell as well as we predicted.

While were talking about the galaxy mega, who on here would trade their note 2 n7100 for the galaxy mega? Would it make sense to leave the note 2 for the mega?

if tmobile dont get this in its inventory, would i be able to buy one from metropcs and unlock it...so that i can use it with my tmobile sim? i bought an att mega 6.3 last month, had it unlocked but i wasnt getting 4g/4g lte like i do with my original tmobile LG L9...but was only getting EDGE speed @ less than 1Mb down...really slow (im getting over 10Mb down on my tmobile LG L9) btw, i sold the at&t mega 6.3.

Well if you get it on MetroPCS it will still be running on T-Mobiles network so there really isn't much of a point in doing it but maybe you can since it's a GSM phone... and the reason you were getting EDGE speeds is probably from some settings or incorrect bands. T-Mobiles bands are different from AT&Ts.
