Samsung phablets will be called Mega

Rumors have been going around that Samsung is getting ready to launch a couple of new devices that would fall into the “phablet” category.

Reports are now indicating that Samsung has changed the name of those devices, calling them the Galaxy Mega line. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 is code-named GT-I9152. So far, rumors indicate that this device will be an Android gadget with a screen measuring – wait for it -- 5.8-inches.

5.8-inches is certainly a big screen for a smartphone, but the other device Samsung reportedly has up its sleeve is even larger. The second device is called the Galaxy Mega 6.3 and carries the codename GT-I9200. This particular device was previously been rumored to be called the Galaxy Note III.

The Galaxy Mega 5.8 is expected to be offered in white somewhere around the end of May. The Galaxy Mega 6.3 will reportedly come in black and white colors around the middle of June.

I can't see why Samsung couldn't fit a 5.8" screen in a device that's the same width as the Note 2, and I could handle a phone that was a little longer...though it's moot for me since I've only had my Note 2 for half a year.

That being said, though...6.3"? I would literally need new pants. I'm not knocking it; I can definitely see a usage scenario where it makes sense (purse plus Bluetooth earpiece). Only problem is, I don't carry a purse...
