Samsung reveals larger than life Galaxy Mega smartphones


Samsung has unveiled a new supersized smartphone in the form of the Galaxy Mega, which is set to come in two versions.

The Korean firm is rolling out 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch versions of the handset, meaning it will be even bigger than the Galaxy Note II.
As well as a large display, the mobile phone boasts a 1.7GHz dual-core processor (or a 1.4GHz version with the 5.8-inch model), an eight-megapixel rear camera and 1.5GB of random access memory.
It also comes with a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, the latest Android Jelly Bean 4.2 operating system, 64GB of expandable storage, LTE and GPS functionality.
While TechRadar reports one unofficial European retailer could be selling the Galaxy Mega 6.3 for around €699 (£600), Samsung has yet to exclusively announce what its forthcoming devices will cost.

The Mega – set to arrive in Britain in mid-May – will replace the Huawei Ascent Mate, which has a 6.1-inch screen, to become the largest handset on the smartphone market, while Apple’s iPhone 5 lags even further behind with its four-inch display.
