Samsung Galaxy Mega coming soon, gets priced at RM1,599

Samsung Galaxy Mega Malaysia

If you’re looking for something big, the mammoth sized 6.3″ Samsung Galaxy Mega is coming soon with the price tag of RM1,599 as teased by IMCC. So far no exact availability dates were mentioned but it is believe it should be within the next week or two. Announced in April, the Galaxy Mega comes in 2 variants – 6.3″ and 5.8″, and we are getting the biggest and higher spec version which is the 6.3″ model.

Specs wise, the Galaxy Mega runs on a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm processor with 1.5GB of RAM and with either 8GB or 16GB of storage. Like any Galaxy phones, you can expand the storage using microSD. The front 6.3″ display uses a TFT screen that does 1280×720 pixels resolution which gives a pixel density of 233ppi. In the imaging department, the Galaxy Mega comes with a main 8MP shooter and a front facing 1.9MP camera. Despite packing a generous 3,200mAh battery, it manages to maintain a rather slim 8mm profile and weighs 199g.

Overall, the specs are mid-tier compared to the flagship Galaxy S4 but its huge screen makes it more appealing for gaming or those needing a bigger display device but still able to fit into a pocket.
