Samsung has already announced the flagship tablet- the Galaxy Tab S series in India today and in China the company has announced a slew of affordable devices as well which is flavored with Android KitKat OS.
But the company seems to be pretty busy working on a new device, as well. It is obvious to think about the Galaxy F when you hear about upcoming Samsung handset, but, we are not talking about that one right now. The device in question is the successor of the Galaxy Mega smartphone which was launched last year.
Now the Galaxy Mega 2 has appeared on the GFX Benchmark database and thus we have a vivid idea about how the phone will be in terms of hardware and specs.
Thus according to the GFX Benchmark listing, the Galaxy Mega 2 which comes with a model number SM-G7508 sports a 5.9 inch display offering a resolution of 1280 x 720pixels.
Apparently, it looks like Samsung will use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 410 processor which will be the first 64-bit chip that Samsung will use in its smartphone. The chipset is rumored to be in a testing phase. It will come packed with Adreno 306 GPU (graphics processing unit) and 2GB of RAM and 8 GB internal storage. It will definitely run on Android KitKat 4.4.3, but reports online suggests that it will be launched with Android v4.4.4.
Other specs that have been revealed include: a 12 megapixel rear camera, a 5 megapixel front facing camera, single SIM Slot, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC.
