Many folks waiting on the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 have been left in the dark in regards to a date (and even pricing) up to this point. We knew not to expect it sometime this quarter, but without any more details from Samsung we were left to guess for ourselves. Well, we at least now know not to expect this device at any point this month or next month, but Clove has gotten some updated info for those over in the UK.

According to them, the device will be shipping at some point this July. Unfortunately that doesn’t give us an exact release date to look forward to, but at least we can rest easy knowing the wait from now won’t be unbearably long. We also have an early price: £459.99 including VAT.

The “6.3” in its name comes from its screen size, of course, but some might be disappointed to find out that this phone will only have 720p resolution. It still seems to be a very solid device, though, with its 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, Android 4.2.2, 16GB of internal storage, 8 megapixel rear camera with a 1.9 megapixel front camera, WiFi, NFC, Bluetooth and more.

It’s hard to imagine anyone would be gushing over this device compared to, say, the Samsung Galaxy S4. It’s a bit more affordable, though, and if bigger phones are your thing we might see where some would be pleased to own one. We’ll be on the lookout for a more pointed release date, but in the meantime let us know if this is something you’ll be looking to get your hands on once it’s finally available.
