The 6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega – Does Size Really Matter?

Just when you thought cell phone case-makers had forgiven you for buying the Galaxy Note II or the Galaxy S3, think again. Apparently Samsung is trying to push the limits of the common garment mainstay known as the pocket. You have to love their confidence. The Galaxy Mega will come in 2 models: 6.3 and 5.8-inch. Time to start those squeeze ball exercises..

We all know the company’s craftsmen can churn out devices like nobody’s business and we’ve been blessed by some of their models for sure. As a former Galaxy S2 power user, I can vouch for my then-phone-based happiness. My carrier-based happiness was another story. Both Mega smartphones will be, of course, making their big (no pun intended) debut across the pond first. So what does the Jelly Bean (Android 4.2) running 6.3-inch beast have under the hood? According to Engadget:

The 6.3-inch model has an ‘HD display’ (720p) alongside a duel-core 1.7GHz processor, Android 4.2 and an 8-megapixel camera……[along with] internal storage that can be expanded by microSD up to 64GB, with 8 or 16 gigs (there’s two models) built-in to begin with.


Samsung hasn’t said whether or not the U.S. will get the pleasure of either Galaxy Mega but then again, where’s the fun of opening a gift that isn’t wrapped? We’ll keep our eyes and ears open for more updates but in the meantime, I’d suggest using the time to find out where exactly one goes to retrofit pants pockets with Spandex…
