Samsung to launch two ‘Galaxy Mega’ smartphones this year

SamMobile is reporting that Samsung is planning to launch two ‘Galaxy Mega’ smartphones this year. Apparently the Korean manufacturer has decided to name its upcoming giant-screen phone as Galaxy Mega, which will join company’s Note-series in the battle for phablets.

According to the report, Samsung will introduce 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch display phones in this Mega series and the 5.8-inch GT-9152 is likely to support dual-SIM connectivity. There seems to be no information about 6.3-inch GT-I9200 dual-SIM version.

SamMobile adds that Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 will be sold in white colour and will be available around week 22 (May 27 – June 2), while Galaxy Mega 6.3 will come in both black and white colours around the week 25 (June 17- June 23).

After the failed attempt by Dell with 5-inch Streak, it was Samsung that started the trend of super-large screen smartphones with original Galaxy Note, which was later joined by Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Grand and now the company seems to be taking it to a new level. It remains to be seen whether consumers will indeed be interested in smartphone with a display as large as 6.3-inches.
