The Galaxy Mega name should give you some hints already, yes you've guessed it right, Samsung will be launching smartphones with display even larger than the current Samsung Galaxy Note II.  That's only if the report by Sam Mobile is true. it claims Samsung will initially launch two devices - one with a 5.8-inch display (GT-I9152) and other with a 6.3-inch display (GT-I9200), branded under Galaxy Mega. These devices will cater to the mid-range crowd and will even launch a dual-SIM version in some regions.

Rest of the specs are unknown at this point, but I9152's GLBenchmark test reveals the device to have qHD resolution (960×540) support and a 1.2GHz processor (probably dual-core).

Samsung Galaxy Mega devices are expected sometime after May.  Now the question is, do we even need that humongous sized phone?

In the not so distant future, Samsung is said to be going to launch bigger devices of 5.8- and 6.3-inch sizes and no word is given yet if these will be phones or tablets. The 5.8-incher has a model number GT-i9152 and it is possible that it will support dual SIM because Samsung uses a number scheme ending in 2 for their Duos products.

On the other hand, the 6.3-incher has a GT-i9200 and it may have been initially rumored to be the size of the upcoming Galaxy Note 3. It might possibly be the biggest smartphone (if Samsung confirms this) and it might also be compatible with the game pad accessory that the Galaxy S 4 was meant to have.

According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 will already be available on the last week of May.

We have some information on Samsung GAlaxy Mega Specs today, thanks to SamMobile. 

Samsung Galaxy Mega codename GT-I9152 will be a high-end DUOS smartphone with a 5.8" qHD (960×540) TFT display. Samsung will give the Galaxy Mega 5.8 a 8 megapixel back camera and a 2 megapixel front camera. The processor would be a dual-core clocked at 1.4 GHz with 1.5 GB of RAM.  It will feature Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 80211 a/b/g/n and A-GPS are on the device too. Galaxy Mega 5.8 will have a 2600 mAh battery and the dimensions would be 164×83.8×9.7mm.

Galaxy Mega will be launched with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (upgradeable to Android 4.2 over time) and will come with Samsung's TouchWiz user interface.


Samsung has finally revealed its latest oversized smartphones, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3.  It's  larger than even Samsung's 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2, both phones are low- to mid-range in terms of specifications.

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is the superior of the two that comes with a 6.3-inch HD (720p) TFT screen, LTE, 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 8MP rear and 1.9MP front-facing cameras, 8 or 16GB internal memory, microSD card slot and 3200mAh battery.

The Galaxy Mega 5.8 on the other hand features a 5.8-inch display with qHD resolution, 1.4GHz dual-core CPU, HSPA+, 1.5GB RAM, 8MP and 1.9MP cameras, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 8GB internal memory, microSD card slot and 2600mAh battery.

Pricing for the models isn't clear, but from the specifications we expect them to be cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S4.

Samsung mid-range devices are becoming more and more attuned to the needs of its market and the introduction of phones with bigger display just upped the ante on its drive to improve user experience on all levels of its market. A good example is the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8, which Samsung aims to ship 1M units per month. The company has reportedly placed an order of the same number of LCD panel units to its supplier the Chunghwa Picture Tubes and another supplier, the Giantplus Technology.

The Galaxy Mega will run on a dual-core processor, clocking in at 1.4GHz and will have RAM of 1.5GB. The camera will be a big improvement from typical low-to-mid-end Samsung devices and will have 8MP rear and 2MP front cams. The success of its Grand Duos-another mega-LCD mid-range device has really established a niche among people who need bigger panels but are somehow budget-constrained. The Galaxy Mega is estimated to be shipped next month.

Not happy with Google Drive or DropBox?  Now, you have another option, Mega.  Its launched by Kim Dotcom, A year after file-storage site MegaUpload was brought down by U.S. law enforcement officials targeting piracy, it didn't stop Kim Dotcom from launch his new storage website, Mega.


Dotcom said Mega had more than half a million sign-ups in the first 14 hours, so it was already a success. However, the site has sometimes been knocked offline.


Mega's file encryption is not so much to protect users as to protect Kim Dotcom and his company. The New Zealand police force's ludicrous overreaction resulted from accusations that MegaUpload was being used to share copyright material such as movies, TV shows and music. With Mega, files are encrypted before they are uploaded, so that Mega staff do not and cannot know what users are uploading and, possibly, sharing.

Compared to Google Drive, Mega offers a steal! There is no 500 GB plan offered by Google, but we can compare Mega to Mountain View's 2 TB plan. Google Drive's price for 2 TB of storage is a whopping $99.99/month, 5 times the price of Mega's Pro II plan. And we thought Google's plans were affordable.


Mega's Pro Account Prices


  • Pro I: 500 GB of storage and 1 TB of bandwidth for $9.99/month.
  • Pro II: 2 TB of storage and 4 TB of bandwidth for $19.99/month.
  • Pro III: 4 TB of storage and 8 TB of bandwidth for $29.99/month.
