We have more information concerning US launch of Samsung’s latest phablet, the Galaxy Mega 6.3. The beast of a smartphone will make an appearance in the US stores this month and will be offered by Sprint, US Cellular and AT&T. Out of the three carriers, only AT&T revealed details about availability and pricing. The carrier will start selling the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 on August 23rd for $149.99 with a new two-year service agreement. The phone will also be available for $24 a month on carrier’s Next Plan. Sprint and US Cellular are yet to announce official launch dates and pricing, though in Sprint’s press release we read that the device will be available later on this year.
Photos of two new handsets destined for AT&T have appeared on Twitter. While usually we advise you to take such news with a grain of salt, this time the tip comes from @evleaks, who is one of the most reliable sources of details about unreleased phones. The smartphones are the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and a white version of the LG Optimus G Pro. Neither photo was accompanied by any specs, but we know what to expect, more or less at least. The black LG Optimus G Pro is already on sale at AT&T and the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is available in Europe and Asia.
Announced in April, both the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3 were expected to be released in Europe in May. Meanwhile May passed already and the Mega 5.8 as well as its bigger brother cannot be found anywhere in European market. Hopefully, it will change soon. Nevertheless, both models were officially unveiled in India, together with their pricing details.
If the latest rumors are to believed, there may be three new Samsung smartphones coming to AT&T in the not so distant future. In addition to the Galaxy S4 Active, AT&T customers may also expect the Galaxy S4 Mini and the Galaxy Mega 6.3 to land in the carrier’s store soon. It is a lot of Samsung devices at once, but actually it is not surprising at all. Both, AT&T and Samsung, have been known to cooperate closely in the past.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 was officially announced on April 11th, but the exact launch date is not known at this point. The handset was, however, spotted at the Federal Communications Commission as recently as a couple of days ago. The device is scheduled for release in Europe and officially it will not make it across the Atlantic. The good news is that the I9200 model that appeared at the FCC comes with 4G HSPA+ radio and it will be fully compatible with AT&T network. On the downside, the phone will not support 4G LTE – that would be the I9205 model.
Talked about Samsung huge phones recently, the new Galaxy Mega lineup is finally official. Two models, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Mega 6.3 were announced today and the name sure does them the justice. The Mega 5.8 and 6.3 are the largest smartphones released by Samsung so far, beating the previous record-holder, Samsung Galaxy Note II, by 0.4 and 1.3 inches respectively. Neither the pricing nor exact launch date were revealed, but the company assured that both models should be available in Europe some time next month.
As the “whose smartphone comes with the biggest screen” the game continues, Samsung said to be joining in the fun with Galaxy Mega, a new line of phones with huge screens. If the latest rumors are to be believed, the company might be working on at least two new phablets bigger than any device released by Samsung so far. The biggest smartphone currently offered by the Korean manufacturer is the Galaxy Note II with a 5.5-inch display but apparently the company may soon launch a new record holder.
