Samsung's new seven-inch phone/tablet hybrid surfaces, promises to be a giant mid-ranger
Just when you thought phones couldn’t get any bigger, Samsung astounds us again. Last years Galaxy Mega wasn’t the most popular due to the sheer size of the thing, making it impossible to carry in a pocket while offering mid-range specifications. According to Mobile Geeks, a german mobile website, Samsung is working on something bigger than the Mega.
Shown in the picture above is the SM-T2558, a prototype from Samsung. It appears to have the body of a phone, just blown up to ridiculous proportions. It recently passed through TENNA, China’s equipment certification center, bringing a few specifications to the surface. The device is running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, a 720p display, quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, and a 2MP front camera. What’s more is that it includes TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA connectivity, making us much more confused than before. Oh, and it only has 8GB of on-board storage.
It’s still unclear as to whether this is a tablet with phone capabilities or a phone with huge dimensions. We’ll have to see at a later date as to what exactly this is.
