Samsung Galaxy Mega coming in 5.8 and 6.3-inch options

maclarengalaxy-mega-5.8-product-image-1matFor a while the iPhone seemed to be the only mobile phone anyone was interested in but over the last couple of years Samsung have produced a series of top notch phones which have eaten away at Apple’s domination. Of course it’s not just Samsung producing great phones, manufacturers such as LG, HTC and BlackBerry continue to produce popular and well made devices but it’s phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S III which have really caught the attention of not just the media but consumers.

One of the things which works both for and against the iPhone is the lack of choice offered to users. Many users are very happy to just pick up the latest iPhone but if you’d willing to pay for more a model with a bigger screen or perhaps would prefer a cheaper option with a less powerful processor then you’ll have to look elsewhere. While a lot of attention is given to flagship models such as the Galaxy S III or upcoming S 4 the very different models offered by Samsung certainly play a part in their success.

Recently announced are two new models which give users yet more choice in configurations, the Galaxy Mega 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch. Both offer larger screens than most other handsets on the market but the screen size isn’t the only difference between the two. The 6.3-inch model has a 720p display with a dual-core 1.7 Ghz processor and an 8-megapixel camera. The 6.3-inch model is 4G compatible, runs Android 4.2 and will come with a choice of 8GB or 16GB internal storage with the option to expand the memory with a microSD card.

The Galaxy Mega 5.8-inch not only has a smaller screen but also a lower resolution display at 960 x 540 pixels, it has a less powerful 1.4 Ghz dual-core processor but still has an 8-megapixel camera. The smaller Mega only has an 8GB option that can be expanded with a microSD card but is not 4G.

While Samsung already offer a huge screen on their high-end Note II the two Mega models will add more variety to their already diverse line-up and could attract new fans looking for a cheaper big-screen device.
