Wasting no time in getting the week going, AT&T on Monday announced the upcoming availability of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2. Expected on Friday, October 24, the handset features a 6-inch HD display and an 8-megapixel rear camera. Additional specifications include a quad-core processor and 2880mAh battery, and Samsung’s custom TouchWiz interface. Present here are features like Private Mode, Ultra Power Saving Mode, and split-screen multi-function.
While this one isn’t quite as full-featured or hardware heavy as the Galaxy Note series, it’s an affordable take on the plus-sized phone. Average user types who don’t have need for a stylus could do much worse than to consider a Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 for their daily driver.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 will sell for $475 outright or $150 with a new, two-year service agreement. Qualified customers can opt for an AT&T Next plan, spreading payments out over a number of months: $19.80 per month with AT&T Next 18, $23.75 per month with Next 12.
As a reminder, AT&T will give customers a $100 bill credit when activating a new or existing line Next plans. The credit offer expires on October 31.
