Huge phones aren’t foreign territory for Samsung, far from it. They basically started the phablet game with the Note line and a year ago they released their Galaxy Mega devices. One fo them sporting a 5.8″ screen and other 6.3″, which is almost tablet territory.
Many thought that Samsung has reached the line and won’t step over it, but those people were wrong. Earlier this month a mysterious Galaxy W (Mega successor) device leaked sporting a 7″ screen and that device was not dubbed a tablet. Sure, that seemed rather odd, but if someone was going to do it it’s Samsung.
That huge device (Mega 2 from now on) was cleared by USA’s FCC yesterday and today it leaks in some images. There aren’t any additional leaked specifications at this time, but if an earlier leak is to be believed the device will sport a 720p screen, a 1.2GHz quad-core chip, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of storage (+microSD card) and a 8MP camera. All that should be operated by an Android 4.3 JellyBean OS.
There aren’t any release date information at this time, but Samsung is going to hold a press even on June 12. Galaxy Tab S lineup will probably get announced there but that doesn’t mean Galaxy Mega 2 will not make an appearance.
Would you ever buy a phone with a 7″ display?
