It looks like Samsung’s oversized Galaxy Mega may be headed to MetroPCS in the near future. The 6.3-inch phablet was recently spotted running MetroPCS-branded software by TmoNews, which claims the device will be available in time for the holiday season. Unfortunately for T-Mobile subscribers, the Android behemoth is reportedly SIM-locked and won’t work on any other network besides MetroPCS.
The Galaxy Mega comes equipped with a 6.3-inch HD TFT display, a dual-core 1.7GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB or 16GB of internal storage with microSD support up to 64GB, an 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.9-megapixel secondary shooter, NFC, and a 3200mAh battery. At launch, the Mega shipped running Android 4.2 out of the box with TouchWiz UI on top, though it’s possible MetroPCS may offer a more recent version of Google’s Android OS.
It’s unclear how much MetroPCS, which sells unlocked Android smartphones, will charge for the Galaxy Mega—the device currently costs anywhere from $400 to $600 online. The company also offers 4G data, talk and text plans, starting at $40 per month while $60 gets you unlimited data.
