Rumor: Samsung to introduce Galaxy Mega line with 5.8 and 6.2-inch handsets

Samsung is rumored to be on the verge of launching a new phablet lineup to compliment their Galaxy S and Galaxy Note offerings (pictured above). Said to be dubbed Galaxy Mega, two device could drop later this year with model number GT-I9152 and GT-I9200. The former would feature a 5.8-inch display. The latter, a 6.3-inch screen.

The 6.3-inch screen size was once rumored for the Galaxy Note 3, though more recent speculation says it could sport a 5.9-inch ‘unbreakable’ display. But talk of the 6.3-inch display size has persisted, especially after it was revealed that Samsung’s new gamepad peripheral will support devices up to that size.

The Samsung Galaxy Mega line is expected to sport middle-of-the-road hardware. They won’t be Exynos Octa 8 powerhouses like the Galaxy S4, but we’re guessing they will feature similar software enhancements. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 is rumored to launch toward the end of May, while the Galaxy Mega 6.3 could hit retailers at the end of June.

    Samsung is ready to announce 2 new phones, and VZW still has yet to announce when it will carry the S4

    The bezel on these beasts is crazy, remove it and they wouldn’t look too big!!!!!

    • Big_EZ

      On these bigger phones the bezel is necessary. Under 5″ and there shouldn’t be any bezel, over 5″ needs some bezel to keep you from accidentally hitting the screen.

    Ya the look on this chicks face is pretty funny. She’s just thinkin of the guy thats buying this HUGE ASS phone and what he’s “compensating” for. I mean think about it…a phone this large in your pocket is gonna make your JUNK look like a MONSTER! I’m in….Samsung hook me up!

    • ari_free

      Giant phones are very popular with the ladies with purses because they don’t have the pocket problem. On the other hand, a girl with tight jeans and one of these things in her pocket…not a good combo.

  • Jayshmay

    Ohhhh yeah, as if 5.0++++ smartphones aren’t already too big as it is!!! I want a smartphone that can comfortabley fit in my hand, that my finger can reach across the screen w/o too much hassle!!!

    • Big_EZ

      My thumb can reach about 95% of my 5.5″ Note 2 screen without moving my hand to stretch. The only spot I can’t reach comfortably is the upper left corner, most of which is the notification bar.

    • bmg314

      And there are smartphones out there that will fulfill your needs, I believe.

  • zifnab

    So this will be considered a tablet right? Pretty sure 6.3″ won’t fit in the pocket, at least not well.

    • Big_EZ

      I think 6.3″ would fit, my 5.5″ Note 2 fits in the change pocket inside my pocket. Some people say a Nexus 7 fits in their pocket (although I’m sure it doesn’t comfortably) so it’ll fit, just how well.

        When I had my Nexus 7, it fit in my back pants pocket with zero issues. Even when it was wearing a slim TPU case.

  • feztheforeigner

    Silly Samsung, the megaphone already exists…

  • Cory Skelton

    Holy crap a 6.3″ phone is overkill IMO unless your hand is as big as a basketball. I really hope the Galaxy S line stays at 5″ or I’m gonna have to consider another type of phone within a year or two.

  • guitarist5122

    no thx. my note two is big enough. when the time comes to upgrade, I dont think I can go smaller than 5″ but wont go bigger unless its a bigger screen do to less bezel

  • mmmmmbop

    Rumor: I wouldn’t even consider buying that.

    Remember the game Mega Man?
