Following the success of the Galaxy Note 2, Samsung is going to release another brand of budget smartphones that is called the Samsung Galaxy Mega to compete with all those 6 inchers and 7 inchers now on the market. Galaxy Mega will be of lower-end and it is a series parallel to the Galaxy S and Note Series. Sammobile said that Samsung plans to announce two huge screen phones including Galaxy Mega 5.8, Galaxy Mega 6.3. The names of the Mega are actually self-explanatory: one with a 5.8-inch screen and another with a 6.3-inch screen.
Actually, the Mega series is the Galaxy Fonblet that we covered a couple of weeks ago. The 6.3 incher Galaxy Mega 6.3 has three model names: GT-I9200, GT-I9205 and GT-I9208. The difference between them is said to be GSM version, LTE/WCDMA version and TD-SCDMA/GSM version. We don’t know yet if dual sim will also make its way through this new series.
Galaxy Mega 5.8 is divided into GT-I9150 and GT-I9152 (Dual-Sim). It is a smartphone with 5.8 inch 960 x 540 screen and 1Gb RAM. It seems that the Mega 5.8 is an improved version of the Galaxy Player 5.8.
Samsung has wider target than its rival Apple, who releases only one model of phone target high-end users. Samsung plans low, mid and high end models each with their own flagship device such as Samsung Galaxy S IV. The Mega series is released to fight down some other companies such as Huawei Ascend and Pantech which just released some 6 inch + screen phones. Most of its rival big screen phones are quite cheap and for budget users, that is why Samsung is planning to take that market down.
