6.3" Samsung Galaxy Mega Coming This Week

by Fox Van Allen on August 19, 2013

Samsung MegaIt may be too soon to say whether the Samsung Galaxy Mega is the next big thing. One thing’s certain though: The 6.3” Mega sure is big.

You read that right – the Galaxy Mega is a phone that clocks in at an almost absurdly large 6.3”, nearly the size of a HD Nexus 7 tablet. It may feel weird putting a supersized phone up to your ear, but this device is targeted at the mobile messaging and websurfing crowd.

Strangely enough, the phone that’s making waves for having a big screen falls short in the resolution department. The Samsung’s 1,280 x 720 screen has a disappointing pixel-per-inch count of 233, well under the 326 PPI of the iPhone 5 and the 441 PPI of the Samsung Galaxy S4. Sure, only the most display-focused people will notice the difference, but the Mega is clearly a display-focused phone. The rest of the phone’s specs are pretty standard. The Mega has a 1.7 GHz processor, 16 GB of memory (expandable via microSD), and an 8MP rear camera. You even get the standard color choice: white or black. 

The Galaxy Mega will go on sale starting August 23 at AT&T. The phone will cost you $149.99 with a new two-year contract, or $24 per month with the terrible AT&T Next plan.
