Samsung Galaxy Mega smartphone is big, real big

Samsung has announced the Galaxy Mega, a device which the company said “combines the portability and convenience of a smartphone with the power, multitasking capabilities and extensive viewing experience of a tablet”.

The Samsung Galaxy Mega sports a 6.3-inch HD screen, and is slim and portable enough to put into a pocket or hold in one hand.

The Galaxy Mega has an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with a 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera.

The Galaxy Mega smartphone runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and features a dual core processor and internal storage of up to 64GB of expandable memory.

For users looking for a bit more portability, Samsung is also introducing the Galaxy Mega 5.8. This more compact version features a 5.8-inch screen.

The Samsung Galaxy Mega will be available globally with launch dates staring in the beginning of May 2013. The product availability varies by market and will be rolled out gradually.
