Samsung announce the Galaxy Mega 6.3

After weeks of leaks, rumours and speculation over the likelihood of an April Fool joke, Samsung have come out and announced the Galaxy Mega range.

There are two devices in the range, the lower spec Mega 5.8 and the slightly higher spec Mega 6.3. Only the 6.3 is coming to the UK.

The Mega range are obviously targeted at the user who wants a huge great phone/tablet thing and doesn’t want to spend over £500 on it. But in light of the Galaxy Note III I can only see people getting confused with these potentially almost identical looking devices.

Spec wise the Mega 6.3 is nothing astounding but it’s better than the Mega 5.8.

So all in all nothing special, I guess the price will be the deciding factor. If this thing comes out at around £250 they will have a great success on their hands, although no doubt it’ll be over £400 and they’ll sell the Note III at a £600+ premium. Who knows, I sure don’t.
