Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 for AT&T

The phone goes on sale equipped with a massive 6-inch display featuring 1280x720p resolution, which was downgraded from last year Galaxy Mega’s 6.3-inch screen. Moving on, the new Galaxy Mega 2 runs a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz paired with 1.5GB RAM. When it comes to storing files and apps, the device’s comes with built-in 16GB storage that can be easily expanded via microSD cards.

There will be also Android 4.4 Kitkat with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI installed on the top and 4G LTE connectivity on the phone’s board. All these is powered by a removable 2,800mAh battery that thanks to Ultra Power Saving Mode provides 24 hours of use on a 10 percent charging.
Additionally, the Galaxy Mega 2 has a special Private Mode that allows you to protect your personal data with a password, making them inaccessible to anyone else.
