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.

lol, bro, who is limiting your choices? Samsung will do what Samsung wants (at least until N. Korea starts nuking them). They certainly don't give a crap what I say.

You said it yourself. Choices. *I* won't be buying one. Neither will the millions of others that feel the same way as I do. As reclaimer is saying --- so what?

That is not saying they won't sell or be popular with people that feel there is a need for these. If those people find this useful, the will lay down the cash to buy one. I won't. If I need to make a voice call on a tablet, there is skype and WiFi/LTE. For all those other times there is my SGS3.

No worries. You just came off like you were saying they shouldn't make these because most people wont want them. I know they will do what they want, we are just losers on the web speaking hypothetically about unconfirmed products. LOL

I dont know if these are in addition to the Note line, or are the Note line (just pre-release code names) or are replacing the Note line. It could be in addition, the difference being a large screen phone without active stylus. Either way its going to be a good year for Smartphones in general.
