Samsung Electronics has released a new ‘phablet’ device with a screen that’s larger than the forthcoming Galaxy S4 smartphone and the pen-equipped Galaxy Note 2.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is an Android-powered handset with a 6.3-inch screen, a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and an 8 megapixel camera. There’ll also be a Mega 5.8 with a 5.8-inch screen.
JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Business at Samsung Electronics, said “We are aware of a great potential in the bigger screen for extensive viewing multimedia, web browsing, and more. We are excited to provide another choice to meet our consumers’ varying lifestyles, all while maintaining the high-quality features of the award-winning GALAXY series.”
The Galaxy Mega 6.3 will be available in the UK from mid-May, although the Mega 5.8 won’t be launched here.
