Is Samsung Making a Giant ‘Galaxy Mega’ Smartphone?

Samsung is reportedly working on a mid-range smartphone even larger than its “phablet,” the Galaxy Note.

According to Korea’s ET News, the handset will be called the Galaxy Mega, and will sport a whopping 6.3-inch screen, putting it almost on par with some of the smaller tablets out there, such as the 7-inch Nexus 7. ET News claims the phone will come with a dual-core Exynos processor and 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, with a 2-megapixel forward-facing cam.

SamMobile is adding a little fuel to the rumor fire, claiming the Mega will have a 960 x 540 display, 1.4GHz Exynos processor, and 1GB of RAM. SamMobile thinks ET News is wrong, however, on the size of the device, suggesting that the Mega will have a 5.8-inch screen, only slightly larger (by 0.3 inches) than the Galaxy Note II.

Samsung announced the Galaxy S 4 during an event at Radio City Music Hall last month. The 5-inch smartphone has a 1920 x 1080 display, quad-core 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 processor (8-core 1.8GHz Exnyos 5 Octa processor overseas) and has a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera. Pre-orders for the Galaxy S 4 start April 16.
