Delayed: Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3

May 17, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Latest rumors surrounding the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3 say that the devices have been delayed. Which probably isn’t too much of a big deal since it’s not their flagship devices. After Samsung confirmed these two devices last month, Samsung also said that they would be launching globally and hit Europe and Russia beginning in May. However there are a few clues that point in an entirely different direction.

We already knew that the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 wouldn’t be coming to the UK, but the 6.3 was. If you check out the image down below, you can see that the Galaxy Mega 6.3 isn’t expected until July 2013. Which is a good 2 month delay for the device.

This data comes from GSM Helpdesk which lists that week 23 is when the Galaxy Mega 6.3 would be releasing. Which is starting June 3rd, and week 30 (July 22nd) for the Galaxy Mega 5.8. We’ve seen the Galaxy Mega 6.3 visit the FCC twice already, but there is no word on when it will be hitting the US.

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 of course has a 6.3-inch display which is an LCD display at a 720p resolution and powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM. It also has a choice of 8GB of 16GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot. There’s also a 8MP camera on the back and a 1.9MP on the front.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 has a 5.8-inch qHD display and is powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM. It comes with 8GB of internal storage and has a 8MP shooter on the back and a 1.9MP shooter on the front. Both the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3 are running on Android 4.2.
