Casting all those phallic jokes aside, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 was originally announced back in April, along with its 5.8-inch cousin. They became available in European markets the following month, but the mega-sized smartphone (only the 6.3-inch version) is only making its way to our side of the Atlantic now.
Despite being noticeably larger, the Samsung Galaxy Mega isn’t exactly mega when it comes to the specs. That massive display is only of a 720p HD Super Clear LCD variety. There’s not quad core processor in here either, making do with just a 1.7GHz dual core and 1.5GB of RAM, along with an 8MP camera, Android 4.2.2 and a 3200mAh battery.
AT&T says that it will start selling the Samsung Galaxy Mega for $149 on a two-year contract starting August 23rd. Sprint and U.S. Cellular aren’t as forthcoming with dates or pricing, but they should have the mega-sized phablet ready for purchase “later this year,” just in time for you to lust over the Galaxy Note III instead.
