Samsung Working on Galaxy Mega 6-inch Phablets

Thought the Galaxy S 4's 5-inch is a bit much? The 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II is pushing it? How about devices larger than the two? Samsung is working on upping the ante with large smartphone-tablet intermediates, with big screens that don't necessarily come with high screen resolutions.

Enter the Galaxy Mega, designed to capture two screen-sizes, the 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega 6.3, and the 5.8-inch Galaxy Mega 5.8, the lineup will consist of numerous variants based on number of SIM card slots, and types of cellular networking supported (LTE or lack-of).

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 will be available in three variants, the GT-I9200 (GSM + 3G), GT-I9205 (4G LTE), and GT-I9208 (TD-SCDMA, China-only). Not much more is known about its hardware, other than its obscenely big 6.3-inch screen-size.

The Galaxy Mega 5.8, on the other hand, will lack 4G LTE support completely, and instead will have two variants based on dual-SIM (or lack of). The GT-I9150 features a single SIM slot, while the GT-I9152 features two. Don't be fooled by the 5.8-inch screen-size just yet, it is said to feature a mediocre resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, and system memory amount of 1 GB.

The two devices could be launched in emerging markets, or wherever there's a liking for large-screen devices such as the Galaxy Grand, later this year.
