The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and 5.8 Phablets

Samsung's galaxy is getting bigger and bigger. The Korean company has just announced 2 new Android phablets. The Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Galaxy Mega 5.8. Of course, the numbers indicate the size of the screen. Both phablets borrow the design of the Galaxy S 4 flagship but offer a much larger screen with mid-range specifications. They are actually a more affordable alternative to the Galaxy Note 2 phablet.

The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 sports a 6.3" LCD of 720p HD resolution and is powered by a an Exynos 5250 chipset with a dual-core Cortex-A15 CPU clocked at 1.7GHz and 1.5GB of RAM. It runs Android Jelly Bean 4.2 with Samsung’s TouchWiz modifications like Multi-window (split-screen multitasking) and Air View (detecting your finger an inch from the screen). Unlike the Galaxy Note and Note 2, it has no S Pen input.

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 packs an 8-MP rear camera and a 1.9-MP front-facing camera. For connectivity, it has built-in LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, NFC receivers and packs an IR emitter so it can work as a remote control. It can also connect to Galaxy S 4's and Grand's with Group Play. The phablet measures 167.6 x 88 x 8.0 mm and weighs 199g. The battery has 3,200mAh capacity. Internal storage is 8GB/16GB and there’s a microSD card slot if you need space.

On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 has a smaller screen and a more modest specs sheet. The display resolution is just qHD and the CPU clock speed has been reduced to 1.4GHz. The high-speed connectivity (LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac) is also gone as well as the NFC and the IR emitter. It measures 162.6 x 82.4 x 9.0 mm and weighs 182g and is equipped with a 2,600 mAh battery.
