Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 I9200 Specifications, Price and Launch Date

When Samsung Launched the massive 5 inch Galaxy Note, tech and geek community criticized the size of the massive handset when no phone launched in the market was bigger than 4.3 inch in screen size. But the Galaxy Note was a huge hit, users were loving the screen size and the s pen, ultimately Samsung proved itself right that bigger is better. Even Samsung would have never expected the Note series to outperform the Galaxy smartphone series. This started a trend of 5 inch screen size phablets and soon every manufacturer came out with 5 inch handsets. While tablets are becoming smaller in screen size from 10 inch down to 7 inch form factor, handsets are becoming bigger and bigger from 4 inch to 5 inch and now Samsung has launched a massive 6.3 inch Galaxy mega to narrow the gap between tablets and smartphones.

Samsung has launched Galaxy Mega series to give users alternatives to tablets especially 7 inch tablets. Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is a phablet that can become your tablet because of its screen size. The 6.3 inch handset runs on 1.7 GHz dual core Qualcomm snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5 GB RAM with Adreno 305 GPU and comes in 8 GB and 16 GB variants with option to expand memory up to 64 GB. The device looks like a bigger Galaxy S3 with HD screen but disappointing pixel density of 233 ppi for a 6.3 inch screen. But to keep the price affordable, you have to compromise with some features and that’s the reason screen quality won’t impress. The handset runs on android 4.2 jelly bean and has a 3200 mAh battery. The price will be around 28k INR in Indian market.
