Samsung has announced that the Galaxy Mega 6.3 will soon be making its way to Canada, bringing along a large tablet-like screen with LTE connectivity and all the wizardry of Samsung’s TouchWiz skin atop Android 4.2.2. 


The Galaxy Mega 6.3, Samsung’s gigantic smartphone-tablet hybrid, will soon be making its way to Canadian shores, giving prospective customers a chance to “live large” (literally). Samsung is pitching the Mega 6.3 at students, insisting it “is the back to school accessory of choice,” and carriers Rogers, Bell and TELUS have confirmed they’ll be carrying the device.

No changes in specs are expected, so we’re looking at a large 6.3-inch screen with a not-so-large 720p resolution, a dual-core 1.7GHz processor coupled with 1.5GB RAM, 8-megapixel rear and 1.9-megapixel front-facing cameras, 16GB of built-in memory and a microSD slot, Wi-Fi, HSPA+, NFC, and IR connectivity, a 3,200mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 mired down with Samsung’s TouchWiz skin.

Prices or specific release dates are currently unavailable, but each carrier will sell the LTE-enabled version that is currently sold in some European countries. A fall launch seems likely, though Samsung would do well to get it out to market before the Galaxy Note III comes out, lest the Galaxy Mega 6.3 get dwarfed by the spotlight on the third-generation Note, despite its gargantuan dimension.

Any of you Canadian folks buying the Galaxy Mega 6.3?
