Samsung Galaxy Mega in the Works?

A Korean news website claims that Samsung is working on a “larger” smartphone called Samsung Galaxy Mega.

According to ET News, the Galaxy Mega would be larger than its “phablet,” the Galaxy Note, featuring a whopping 6.3-inch screen. This makes the Samsung Galaxy Mega at par with some of the smaller tablets in the market like the Nexus 7 from Google. The phone will also reportedly sport a dual-core Exynos processor and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, as well as a 2-megapixel forward-facing shooter.

Meanwhile, a Samsung-centric blog has provided new info about the Samsung Galaxy Mega. SamMobile reports that the giant smartphone will have a 960 x 540 resolution, 1.4GHz Exynos processor, and 1GB of RAM. It also provided a conflicting claim on the size of the Mega, suggesting that it will have a 5.8-inch screen, making it slightly larger than the Galaxy Note II.

Meanwhile, Samsung is accepting pre-orders for its Galaxy S4 beginning April 16th. The Galaxy S IV, which was launched in New York last month. The 5-inch smartphone has a 1920 x 1080 display, quad-core 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 processor (or an octo-core 1.8GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor in the international model), and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera.
