Galaxy Mega devices get official

Earlier this month a rumor surfaced that Samsung would begin calling its big-screen smartphones or “Galaxy Mega”. At the time a device with a 5.8-inch screen in the device with a 6.3-inch screen were tipped. Both of those devices have now gone official.

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 will have a 6.3-inch HD resolution LCD screen with support for up to 720p HD content. The resolution of the Mega 5.8 is listed as QHD. Both of these smartphones will use Android 4.2 and dual-core processors. One difference between the devices is that the Mega 5.8 will use a 1.4 GHz processor while the Mega 6.3 uses a 1.7 GHz processor.

Both smartphones have a 1.9-megapixel front facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera. Integrated storage for the Mega 5.8 is 8 GB while the Mega 6.3 will be available in either 8 GB or 16 GB configurations. Both devices also have a memory card slot with support for up to 64GB of additional storage.

Other common features between the two phones include Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, GLONASS, and various sensors. The Mega 5.8 has a 2600 mAh internal battery and the Mega 6.3 has a 3200 mAh battery. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 measures 162.6 mm tall by 82.4 mm wide by 9 mm thick. The Mega 6.3 measures 167.6 mm tall by 88 mm wide by 8 mm thick.

Both Mega smartphones will land in Europe in Russia starting in May. Availability in other countries is unknown at this time. Pricing for the devices is unknown at this time.

it's the number of pixels that count, not the size.

According to a study surveying over 200 women, 96% agree that size matters.

And you got a small....pixel.

Need to chill. This is a forum, it's not like anyone is forcing you to read the comments nor should you need to get personal about it. I think we all understand that it's sometimes difficult not to get hot under the collar when certain buttons get pushed or people start spouting idiot things around but I presume we're all mature enough to know when to back off a little and when we need to chill to keep things sane.

So long as its AMOLED Plus and not PenTile it should be fine. Furthermore having less pixels should greatly improve battery life.

From what I understand it's LCD not AMOLED.
Still, 1080p pentile would have been much better than qHD real stripe.

the low pixel density on both devices and the fact that it launches in russia before the US/south korea should have tipped you off that these are not meant to be high-end devices. they're basically little more than an S2x with a bigger screen. i'm guessing amazon and ebay will have them for around 300 bucks soon.

QHD (2560×1440)

QHD (Quad HD), also sometimes advertised as WQHD[25] due to its widescreen shape, is a display resolution of 2560×1440 pixels in a 16:9 aspect ratio. It has four times as many pixels as the 720p HDTV video standard, hence the name.

This resolution was under consideration by the ATSC in the late 1990s to become the standard HDTV format, because it is exactly 4 times the width and 3 times the height of VGA, which has the same amount of lines as NTSC signals at the SDTV 4:3 aspect ratio. Pragmatic technical constraints made them choose the now well-known 16:9 formats with twice (HD) and thrice (FHD) the VGA width instead.

In autumn 2006, Chi Mei Optoelectronics (CMO) announced a 47" 1440 LCD panel to be released in Q2 2007;[26] the panel was planned to finally debut at FPD International 2008 in a form on autostereoscopic 3D display.[27]

Some examples of LCD monitors that have pixel counts at these levels are the Asus PB278Q, LG EA83, Dell UltraSharp U2711,[28] U2713HM[29] and XPS One 27", iiyama ProLite XB2776QS, I-O Data LCD-MF271CGBR, Samsung S27A850D, S27A970, and S27B970, HP ZR2740W, ViewSonic VP2770-LED, LG 27EA83, Nixeus NX-VUE27, NEC MultiSync PA271W,[30] and the Apple LED Cinema Display, Thunderbolt Display, and 27" iMac.[31]

Holy NOT Big Pixels, Dumbassman.
