Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3 – the largest ever phablet fills the last gap between 3 and 11 inch screen devices


If you really, really can’t decide whether you want a phone or a tablet, Samsung has confirmed the rumor we recently reported that it is indeed to launch the world’s largest smartphone: the 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega.

Think you might want that but it’s just a teensy bit too large while the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II is just a touch too small? Not to worry, Samsung has thought of you too: the Galaxy Mega is also available in a 5.8-inch form.

The Galaxy Mega has a 1.7Ghz dual-core processor and runs Jelly Bean. It supports LTE, has the usual dual cameras (8MP on the rear, 1.9MP on the front) and is available with 8Gb or 16Gb storage (with a microSD slot supporting up to 64Gb).

Both variants will be launched in May in Europe and Russia, with the US launch date as yet unknown.
