Looking to pick up a cheap but solid big phone? Samsung on Monday officially unveiled the Galaxy Mega 2, the follow up to the company’s sleeper hit last year that went even bigger than the company’s Galaxy Note line. While the device is large, the Mega 2 doesn’t quite feature the specs to match the larger-than-life name.
Specs include a 6-inch 720p display, 1.5GHz quad-core processor (the exact one is unclear, though it’s likely an Exynos variety), 1.5GB of RAM and Android 4.4 (with TouchWiz); it also sports 16GB of expandable storage, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera (2.1-megapixel front), though there’s no S Pen support, which is a large part of the Note’s charm. The listing doesn’t confirm battery size, so we’ll keep our eyes peeled for that.
Earlier rumors claimed the device would sport a 13-megapixel camera and 2GB of RAM, so perhaps there will be different models for different audiences. For now, this information comes out of Samsung’s Thailand wing.
For the right person, the Galaxy Mega line is a pretty great device; it embraces its largeness with some software tweaks to offer easier one-handed use, though otherwise it pretty much looks like a regular Samsung device, just really big. When is this coming to the U.S.? We’re not sure. When the Mega 2 does become available, you’ll be able to pick it up in either black or white.
