Samsung Rumored To Be Designing 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega Phablets

This phablet thing might be getting a little out of hand. According to SamMobile, Samsung is working on two giant handsets--one a 5.8-inch devices and the other a 6.3-inch monster. They’ve dug up specs on the two devices, which will reportedly go by the name “Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8” and “Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3”.

The Galaxy Mega 5.8 (GT-I9152) will sport a qHD TFT (960x540) display with a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8MP rear and 2MP front cameras. It’ll run Android Jelly Bean (with Samsung’s Nature UX) and pack WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and A-GPS with a 2600 mAh battery.

The bigger 6.3-inch model (GT-I9200) will have the same cameras, amount of RAM, connectivity and sensors, interface, and operating system; the processor will be a dual-core clocked at 1.7GHz and have a 3200mAh battery. It appears as though there will be two Mega 6.3s, one with LTE and one without. The phones will come in black or white.

Feelings are mixed about phablets--whether they can last as a sub-genre of mobile devices and if they make any sense as a mainstream device--but Samsung is apparently not ambivalent about it at all.
