Samsung stuffs a quad-core processor into the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and calls it the Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus

Samsung stuffs a quad-core processor into the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and calls it the Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus
A report out of China indicates that Samsung has a new model called the Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus. This handset carries the exact same specs as the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 with one important difference. Instead of the dual-core 1.4GHz processor under the hood, the Korean based manufacturer is putting a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU inside the phone.

The rest of the specs remain the same, including the 5.8 inch screen with a resolution of 540 x 960 (qHD). That combination provides a rather unexciting pixel density of 190ppi. 1.5GB of RAM is on board, along with 8GB of native storage. A 64GB capacity microSD slot is available, and the back and front facing snappers weigh in at 8MP and 1.9MP respectively. The 2600mAh battery keeps the gerbils spinning on the wheel and pre-installed on the phone is Android 4.2.2. The device will include Sammy's own applications like Multi Window, Popup Play, S Translator and more.

Right now, the Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus has been spotted in China and might not make it out of the country.

You have absolutely no reason to be upset. What difference does it make to you? No one is forcing you to read about them or buy them. In other words, if it doesn't concern you (it doesn't), then go about your own business & STFU.

Some people, including LoveHater (I assume), suffer from a serious disease in which their bodies feel extremely painful and their brains cannot function well whenever Samsung makes another phone. It affects their life so much... You can tell by their attitude, lol.

Wait. Why Android 4.2.2. I can remember about a post that said Google is forcing phone companies to make their phones with more up to date android versions?

Maybe you should have read it before you posted. It would have eliminated the need for either of our posts in the first place.

There is still some time left for 4.2 The other article mentioned April as the last month for 4.2, I think.

After a big brainstorming session, Samsung's marketing renamed the device to the Galaxy S Core Neo PlusPro Lite as it is more fit to the current naming scheme /Neo/Pro/Lite. They also plan on releasing a newer version in 7 months with less RAM and a slower processor and call it the Galaxy S+ Core Neo LitePro Plus. But that one is just a rumour.

If they have both phones side by side, it would be a great way to test the difference between higher clock speed and more cores

I took a chance with the galaxy mega line by buying the 6.3 but I don't think its really going anywhere. I'm actually trying to sell my mega and get a note 3. I like it but the note line is definitely better. I may be wrong by saying this but I don't see a future for the galaxy mega. Both the 5.8 and 6.3. I have a note 2 and I thinks its better than my mega 6.3.
