We already know that Sprint is getting the gargantuan Galaxy Mega 6.3 at some point, we’re just not sure when. A brand new image from @evleaks, however, suggests the device could hit the carrier as soon as Friday, Nov. 8, which is just a few short weeks away. The device has been available through several channels already, including AT&T here in the states. But if you haven’t picked the phablet up yet, you’ll now have another option when weighing up which carrier to go through.

What’s striking about the device is that it’s void of any overt carrier branding—ahem, Verizon—with no logos on buttons or even on the device’s rear shell. The image does show a Sprint Zone icon right there on the home screen, so you can definitely expect plenty of bloated carrier software, as always. Otherwise, the device itself is just as large and in charge as we’ve seen before—only with no S Pen, which is one of the main attractions of a device like the Note III.
Internally, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 comes equipped with a 1.7GHz dual-core chip, 1.5GB of RAM, 720 display and 8-megapixel camera. Decidedly mid-range by today’s standards, but by no means a junker. If you’re keen on big handsets, this is about as big as they come. We’re still waiting on an official release date, but until that comes, perhaps Nov. 8 as suggested by the image is what you can circle on your calendar.
