It's already been a year since the first generation Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Mega 6.3 were launched onto the market. Both the devices were huge let down in respect of hardware and features; however, it would be wrong not to highlight their contribution in making ‘phablet' category so strong.
Today, the second generation of Samsung Galaxy Mega series or the Galaxy Mega 2 has apparently being leaked online. Not surprisingly though, the new phone is set to succeed last year's Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy 6.3, according to a new FCC filing.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 which supposedly carries a model number SM-G7508 could be announced sooner or later. The same model first leaked in March this year, but it was assumed to be the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini. Now, the SM-G7508 has appeared again, and, in fact, its dimensions measures 164.4mm x 85mm, which makes the device slightly larger compared to the original Galaxy Mega 5.8.
Not long ago the Samsung SM-G7508 was first spotted in undergoing a test in GFX benchmarks, which is speculated to be a Chinese variant of the upcoming Galaxy Mega 2.
Samsung's upcoming tablet sized device will reportedly feature a 5.9-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720p-pixels.
The Galaxy Mega 2 is said to feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 410 processor paired with 1.8GB of RAM and 8GB of on-board storage. Also, the handset is said to offer a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
There is currently no word on when the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 will be officially unveiled. It is safe to say that Samsung may launch the Mega 2, alongside the monster Galaxy Note 4 at this year's IFA Berlin tech show in September. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
