Samsung 7-inch phone arrives at the FCC, makes the Galaxy Mega look tiny
The Samsung Galaxy Mega line-up was never meant to wow anyone when it came to the spec race, but Samsung knew exactly why it had to launch the phone. There is a market for people that want a gigantic device that’s also affordable, and given the fact that the Galaxy Note line-up is more of a high-end smartphone, it seems that Samsung want’s more affordable phablets in the market, even if size leaves phablet territory.
The Samsung SM-T2558 recently stopped by at the FCC for certification, and if you thought the Galaxy Mega 6.3 was huge, you’re mistaken. This phone has a crazy 7-inch display, and according to the specifications listed, we can expect a 720p resolution display, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor which might be a Snapdragon 400, 1.5GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 8GB of storage expandable via a microSD slot, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, which should change to KitKat in some markets at least.
We have no dates for a launch just yet, but this might just be the second iteration of the Galaxy Mega in case you’re interested.
