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.
Samsung Galaxy Mega GT-I9152 vs. GT-I9200
So far we have heard of two Galaxy Mega devices – the Mega 5.8 (model number GT-I9152) and Mega 6.3 (model number GT-I9200). Obviously, the numbers refer to screen size so the GT-I9152 is expected to measure 5.8 inches in diameter and the GT-I9200 will feature a 6.3-inch screen. If you follow the news about Samsung products, a 6.3-inch display should sound familiar to you. It was previously rumored for the Galaxy Note III, but it looks like it will sport a 5.9-inch “unbreakable” screen instead.
Other than huge screen sizes we know very little about these Galaxy Mega devices. Both the Mega 5.8 and Mega 6.3 will supposedly offer mid-range specs and might be launched around “week 22” (May 27) and “week 25” (June 17) respectively. Of course, none of the rumors was confirmed and the only “proof” that Samsung might release a phablet with a 6.3-inch display is the fact that Samsung’s new GamePad supports devices up to this exact screen size. Since it is not really a solid proof and might be pure coincidence, you should probably take the news with a grain of salt.
