Many manufacturers are diving into the growing ‘phablet’ market, with Samsung leading the way. The South Korea-based Samsung has seen tremendous growth in demand for smartphone with screen sizes that are near the ‘tablet’ threshold, as evident by consumers’ positive reception of the Samsung Galaxy Note line.
Although the Galaxy Mega doesn’t boast the same artillery as the Note II and the upcoming Note III, it does boast a huge 1280×720 6.3-inch screen with a 233ppi pixel density. It also carries along with it a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual core and an Adreno 305 GPU, 1.5GB of RAM, and comes with 8GB of internal storage. As with most other Samsung smartphone, the Mega 6.3 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OTB.
