Samsung is apparently adopting the attitude, "if it works for ya just go with it," when it comes to the "bigger is better" manufacturing trend. We have some new intel regarding their next generation super-sized phablets that will potentially be called the Samsung Galaxy Mega. According to the latest intel there will indeed be a 5.8-inch version and a 6.3-inch version. The "smaller" version will come out first, with the mammoth one due to come out shortly after. Both will likely hit some level of global availability later this year. The rumors seem to include leaked specs as well. Here's a quote with some of the details,
The 5.8-inch version (GT-i9153) will have a modest qHD (960 x 540) LCD display, a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 8MP rear camera, and a 2600mAh battery. It will come in at 9.7mm thick and it will have dual-SIM capability.
Lesser details are known about the 6.3-inch version, but what we can say is that it will also have an LCD panel, a dual-core Exynos processor, an 8MP rear camera, and a 2MP front camera. Unfortunately we don’t have the display resolution or the CPU clock speed, but they will probably be similar to the 5.8-inch version.
It's easy to scoff at these "McDonald's-inspired" smartphones, but there is no denying the success of devices like the Galaxy Note and Note 2. To that end, what do you guys think? At what point does your phone become a tablet? What is too big to carry around?
