U.K. retailer Clove accepting pre-registrations for the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3; July launch seen
For those of you out there who have been waiting for Samsung's really big next thing, U.K. phone retailer Clove is now accepting pre-registrations for the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3. That means that while you can't really reserve the phone right now, you can leave your email address to receive notification when it will be available. This is the handset that offers a humungous 6.3 inch 720p display. Unfortunately, the combination of a 720 x 1280 resolution and the screen size results in a less than spectacular pixel density of 233ppi.

Clove has posted an unconfirmed price, including VAT, of £459.99 ($700 USD) for the device. The unit is expected to be in stock sometime in July and will be available in black or white.

Despite the rather large screen, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is more of a mid-ranger with its dual-core 1.7GHz processor and the 1.5GB of RAM aboard. And while current top-shelf models are sporting 13MP snappers these days, the back and front-facing cameras on the device weigh in at 8MP and 1.9MP respectively. Android 4.2 is pre-installed.

If you believe that size does matter, you can send Clove your email address to be notified when you can reserve one of these palm-busting handsets.

Too much overpriced, it's just US$50 cheaper than the S4

You don't have to carry 2 devices with you at all time.

But it needs to come at a reasonable price. It has mid range specs with only screen size separating it from others, and it costs more than a soon-FHD Nexus 7 and a Nexus 4 COMBINED. I'd say $400 would be a reasonable price, but with almost at 7" does it really worth twice as much as a Nexus 7? Unfortunately it'll set you back thrice. Rather pick up a Note II then. Quite a few good offers out today.

Samsung is realizing that you can sell a phablet for much more than a tablet. If they released this thing as a tablet, the price would likely be under $400. But the phablet with probably retail 4 at least $600. Can't imagine someone paying $700 with those specs

I really was going to buy this but its not worth $700 and July is to late. By July I might as well just wait for the note 3.

It's the market, Jim. Samsung has the resources and research as well as R&D to mass churn every model for every market, you are forgetting that emerging economies in Asia including advanced yet still blossoming economies like South Korea have different budgets and a preference for the larger phone. China I know already has an inkling to go with larger screened handsets but also affordable mid tier ones too, the thing is most of these masses of clones won't be coming to the west anytime soon. The phablets from the mega range will definitely see the light of day here, but they are making their money where they can get the most out of it, and that's where the market will be like pretty much from now onwards in Asia/Latin America and the emerging African markets.
