Samsung announced on Tuesday that their Galaxy collection will include another model, the Galaxy Mega. The phablet – a combination between smartphone and tablet – is the biggest on the market at present, according to the declaration of reporters at CNET News.
Samsung surprises customers with a new model; the company revealed on Tuesday the much-awaited Galaxy Mega, the biggest phablet produced by the South Korean manufacturer. Two versions of the device have been prepared, but analysts could not estimate the consumers’ reaction given that the majority of these devices resemble each other.
Samsung described the two phablets as having 5.8 inches and 6.3 inches, respectively. The smaller Mega weighs 182 grams, whereas the bigger version weighs 199 grams. Compared to other Samsung gadgets, the two Galaxy Mega devices may seem large and heavy, but the producer reassures us that consumers will be able to easily carry the phablet in their pockets.
Galaxy Mega was designed to meet the needs and expectations of customers who love to watch videos on their smartphones. The new device is slightly bigger than a smartphone, but much easier to use and carry around than a tablet. The rear camera is rather weak compared to the one embedded on the Galaxy S4 model’s 13 megapixel camera. Film lovers might be intrigued by the fact that the company describes the phablet as the perfect product for media files, whereas the rear camera does not offer the best quality. The front camera has only 1.9 megapixels.
Lots of new apps have been created for the new Samsung Galaxy Mega. The Story Album app helps users better organize the content of their phones. Other apps that have been included are Group Play, S Memo and S Translator.
Vineet Taneja, the Country Head of Samsung Mobile and Digital Imaging Business, explained that the greatest asset of the new phablet is the large screen because consumers in India are passionate about multimedia. However, the technical specs are rather good, too. The two Galaxy Mega versions run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and have 16 GB internal memory which can be extended to 64 GB using an SD card. The battery life amounts to 12 hours when using 3G.
