Earlier this week, we have reported that Samsung is working on two new smartphones. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3 are designed to cover the empty range between smartphones and tablets.
According to leaked information, the specifications of the devices are finally confirmed. The Galaxy Mega 5.8, codenamed GT-I9152, comes with a 5.8-inch qHD TFT display. The display does not come with high screen resolution, supporting only 960 x 540 pixels resolution. The device comes with two cameras, an 8-megapixel rear-facing and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
The processor is a dual-core clocked at 1.4 GHz, and there will be 1.5 GB of RAM. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 sports Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n and a GPS. The dimensions would be 164 × 83.8 × 9.7 mm, and it will have a 2,600 mAh battery.
The 6.3-inch phablet uses the same dual-core with somewhat higher clocks (1.7 GHz vs. 1.5 GHz) as well as the same amount of RAM. Among Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n and a GPS, Samsung will release the Galaxy Mega 6.3 in two versions, one with and one without LTE. Due to bigger dimensions, which are 88 × 167.6 × 7.9 mm, Samsung will use the battery with 3,200 mAh capacity as well as the same 8-megapixel rear-facing, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
The two devices are running Android 4.1.2 / 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Nature UX interface on it. Samsung expects to sell them sometime in June.
