Samsung appears to prepare to launch a new device that will join the Samsung Galaxy Mega family. The long-rumored phablet was noticed on the Chinese telecommunications certification website TENAA along with some of its specs. Will this time it will be really the Galaxy Mega 2, or just another disappointment, untruly gossip like in the case of alleged successor of the Galaxy Mega which turned out to be the 7-inch Galaxy W?
Samsung SM-G7508Q could be the long rumored Galaxy Mega 2
The discussed handset occurred in the TENAA database under the SM-G7508Q codename. And according to the website, it supports China TDE- LTE connectivity standards which means that the phone will be soon available on the country’s mobile market.
Earlier, when first leaks concerning the Galaxy Mega 2 spread round the net, we reported that the device will be equipped with 5.9-inch screen. Now we know that we assumed wrongly since as it appeared the Mega’s successor will sport 5.98-inch display, so we can be pretty sure that the manufacturer will advertise its new product as a 6-inch smartphone.
Furthermore the display is also said to have 720x1280p resolution. Why Samsung didn’t equip the phablet with 1080p one? In case of such a massive display, 720p resolution seems to be a poor combination. Higher pixel density will definitely create more vivid image, don’t you think?
The smartphone isn’t only big in terms of its name since the 6-inch display makes the Galaxy Mega 2 a really massive measuring 163.6 x 84.9 x 8.6 mm device.
Going deeper into the Galaxy Mega 2’s the parameters, the handset is reportedly powered by 64bit version of Qualcomm 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 chipset and will run Android 4.4 KitKat out of box. The handset will also house 2 GB RAM and 8GB of built-in storage that can be expanded through microSD cards. It terms of optics, the new Galaxy Mega 2 will sport 13-megapixel rear sensor with flash and 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
Though we still know nothing about the official unveiling of the Galaxy Mega 2, we may assume that it will happen pretty soon. And since last month the device was registered at FCC, we may expect the new Samsung’s smartphone to be launched in the US shortly after its Chinese premiere. Be sure that we will keep you posted about any details on the Mega 2 that popped the net.
