Surprising Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 Benchmarks Leak Out

June 30, 2014 - Written By Jamil Bryant

The Samsung Galaxy Mega is a huge phone with a screen size of 6.3 inches. It has been confirmed by Samsung themselves that the second generation of Mega’s are on the way and now details on that device have surfaced. On the GFXBench benchmark database, a device with a model number of SM-G7508 has popped up. According to the data, the Mega 2 will have a 1280 x 720 screen resolution and a 5.9 inch screen. The screen is a bit smaller, only indicating that this device will not be as big as the first Galaxy Mega. Another interesting aspect of this device is that it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor. The Chipset is the first 64 bit processor built by Qualcomm and is said to be tested in other Samsung Devices as well and not just the Galaxy mega 2.

In addition to the 64 bit processor, the information from GFXBench says that The Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 will have 2GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage. Those numbers are quite small for a large phone so we’re not sure if that’s correct or not. The information also says that the Mega 2 will include a 12 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front facing camera, neither of which are too shabby but aren’t industry leading by any means compared to what else is already out there. The operating system on the device is Android 4.4.3 but by the time this phone releases, it should come with Android 4.4.4 Kit Kat. According to this information provided by GFXBench, the specs seem a bit weird. A phone running a 64 bit processor presumably wouldn’t have just 2GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. Also the fact that it’s releasing on Android 4.4.3 which was a flawed update that Google quickly patched up with 4.4.4 just seems a tad bit odd.

There is no word on when the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 will be released but with benchmark information popping up, we’re getting the hint that Samsung is hard at work putting this phone together. The first Samsung Galaxy Mega was released in August, so it is a little too early to start anticipating the release of the Mega 2. Below is the benchmark information found on GFXBench. Let us know what you think.
