If you thought that AT&T didn’t have enough exclusives already, well they’re about to get another one. The Samsung Galaxy Mega was announced earlier this year. There’s the Galaxy Mega 5.7 and 6.3. As expected, the numbers refer to the screen size, so yes these are some huge devices. On the software side, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 is identical to the Galaxy S4. Although there are a few features missing. But I doubt you’ll notice their gone. As far as the hardware goes, this is definitely a “mid-range” device. I mean a 6.3-inch qHD display is going to be tough on the eyes. It was pretty bad when we had them at 4.5-inches.
Looks like the Galaxy Mega 6.3 will be the first 6-inch or larger phone to hit the US. There’s already the Huawei Ascend Mate which won’t be hitting the US, and then the Xperia Z Ultra which may never hit the US, unfortunately. So if you’re one of those that just has to have a big phone, then the Galaxy Mega is one you need to watch out for.
Today, @evleaks leaked the Galaxy Mega 6.3 which shows the AT&T logo on the back and the “AT&T” in the status bar which the carrier has a habit of doing to all their devices now. You’ll also notice the AT&T bloat on the home screen. Additionally the Galaxy Mega 6.3 is the SGH-I527 Melius, and has already been announced for Canada using relatively the same model number (I527M for Canada). So perhaps we’ll see more availability of the Galaxy Mega line soon.
There’s no word when the Galaxy Mega 6.3 will be available or even announced. But I’d keep my eyes and ears open as it could literally happen any day. Especially since I don’t expect AT&T to have an event for the device announcement.
How many of you would pick up the Galaxy Mega 6.3 from AT&T? Would you like to see it available on all the carriers? It’s another big phone, with a big battery. Which would be my biggest reason to get the Galaxy Mega. Let us know in the comments down below.
