It was back in May that rumors surrounding the successor of the Galaxy Mega smartphone started making rounds in the webosphere. The Galaxy Mega 2 was announced earlier this month following all the rumors and leaks and apparently the device has gone up for sale in Thailand. In Malaysia, the same smartphone went on sale back in late August.
The device in the aforementioned markets can be bought at the price of $400 (Approx. Rs. 24,332). However, the South Korean tech giant is yet to launch the device in the remaining markets like India and others. The new Galaxy Mega 2 will be replacing last year's Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Mega 5.8.
As far as the specs are concerned, the new Galaxy Mega 2 sports a 6-inch display offering a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It is powered by a quad-core 1.5 GHz processor (possibly an Exynos 4415 unit, but Samsung doesn't confirm this yet) coupled with 1.5 GB of RAM.
The device measures 163.6 x 84.9 x 8.6 mm and it has got a 2.1 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording. In the connectivity front, users will get to see LTE connectivity along with the regular features like USB, Bluetooth etc. The nw Mega smartphone houses 16 GB of expandable internal memory.
The device runs Android KitKat, seemingly offering most of Samsung's latest software features - including Ultra Power Saving Mode (for longer battery life), and One-handed operation mode (quite useful on a screen that large).
It is not sure, whether the new Galaxy Mega smartphone will be launched in other markets or not. But, will keep the device in surveillance for now.
