We’re not quite sure what to make of this rumor just yet, but here it goes anyway. Someone was a little naughty when they accidentally updated the Samsung WatchOn changelog and name-dropped the following three devices: the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mega, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active. Save for the first one, these smartphones aren’t new in the rumor mill.
The former, the Galaxy S4 Mega, sounds like it could be a stretched out version of the Samsung Galaxy S4. We’re thinking it could be entering Galaxy Note 2 territory at 5.5 inches (without S Pen, of course), or perhaps beyond that if it’s looking to emulate the current 5.8 inch or 6.3 inch Galaxy Mega models. There’s no way to tell, though, as the device has only been mentioned in passing up to this point.
The other two devices, the Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy S4 Active, are a bit more familiar. The former is said to not only be a smaller version of the Galaxy S4 in size, but also weaker in spec. We’re expecting a 1.6GHz Exynos 5210 dual-core chipset, and a 4.3 inch qhD (960 x 540) display. The Active, on the other hand, will apparently be a metal-sporting version of the handset that we already know and love.
The changelog for the WatchOn app has since been, well, changed to remove such references, but we have a feeling this isn’t the last time we’ve heard of any of these devices.
