We saw some early reports of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 coming to America in AT&T flavor, but now Samsung has officially announced launch details for the device here in the United States. The South Korean manufacturer has confirmed that AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular would all carry the device later this year, though no specific pricing and availability details have been afforded to us.

Already available in other parts of the world since mid-summer, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 is named after its huge 6.3-inch 720p display. That’s a great deal bigger than anything Samsung — or any other OEM, for that matter — has on the market. That said, it still isn’t quite as powerful as Samsung’s other phablet, the Note 2, or their 2013 flagship Galaxy S4. Specs include 1.5GB of RAM, a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, an 8 megapixel camera and more.

Of course, Samsung’s custom user interface sits on top, and brings with it features like Multi Window, Air View and more. Those bits will sit on top of Android 4.2.2 out of the box. You’ll be able to find this thing in either “Nova Black” or “Polaris White,” color options whose names play on the whole “Galaxy” branding Samsung has built up over the years.

The device will also come with a number of accessories, including the S-View Flip Cover, Protective Cover+, and more. We’ll have to wait for word from each individual carrier for pricing and availability, but those details shouldn’t take long to come to light. Anyone interested?
