Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and 5.8 Specification, Price, Release Date

If Samsung was not forced by market and demand analysis, it might have upscaled and established over 5-inch screen phones as mainstream devices among consumers. Well, that’s not the case for now. The success of Galaxy Note 2 phone has garnered enough confidence in Samsung to produce even much bigger phones, as Samsung announced today officially, about the launch of two new phones in a new Mega series – Galaxy Mega 6.3 with 6.3-inch display, Galaxy Mega 5.8 with 5.8-inch display. Many experts are disapproving of Samsung’s ambitious launch – Was the gigantic screen of Galaxy Note 2 not enough? Well, from my point of view – I see Galaxy Mega 6.3 and 5.8 as intermediate product to survey consumer interests and demand so that the company could forecast the future of Galaxy Note series smartphones (whether to add more inches to screen size or not). Anyways, here goes the rest of details about these two newly launched Super-sized smartphones or phablets:samsung-galaxy-mega-5-8-phone
