Could There Be a Galaxy S 4 Mega?

It’s sure seemed like Samsung was planning a whole series of Galaxy S 4 models, from the original smartphone to variants like the GS4 Mini, Zoom, and the Active we just got a chance to look at. Over the weekend, some new evidence arrived that just might point to another GS4 family member, taking its name from the manufacturer’s new Mega line.

A screenshot purporting to show the update details for the latest version of the Samsung WatchON app, arriving yesterday, notes that it “added support for upcoming S4 Mega, S4 mini, and S4 Active.” That same line is missing from the “what’s new” text on Google Play currently, but it’s possible that it was removed after the fact, assuming this is even genuine to begin with.

For the moment, we don’t have anything to go on but this GS4 Mega’s name. That could mean maybe a 5.8 or 6.3-inch screen (above), or another figure entirely. Still, it’s a little odd to be talking about a jumbo-sized GS4 when we’re used to seeing the Galaxy Note serve that role. If this news of a GS4 Mega is accurate, what might that mean for the Note III? We’ll need to get a better sense of just what kind of hardware we’re talking about here before being able to understand how it might fit in to Samsung’s product lines.
