This may be a new strategy by Samsung earlier, smartphone users are accustomed to the larger screen, more powerful configuration.
Samsung has officially introduced to the market the Galaxy Mega – smartphone was previously rumored pretty much. Like the name implies, this model integrates a 6.3-inch screen with a 5.8-inch version, more than any devices called smartphones until the present time. According to Mr. JK Shin, head of Samsung’s mobile division, Galaxy Mega is designed into multimedia entertainment needs and the user’s web surfing.
The Giant Smartphone
Looking back at breakneck growth of the smartphone screen a few years, not surprising that Samsung has pushed the screen size of the Galaxy Mega to 6.3 inch, approximately 1 inch larger than the largest smartphone their previous Note II.
If the Galaxy S3 is the standard for the design of the 2012, when the model comes out as S3 mini, Note II has designed quite similar, it looks like this will be repeated in 2013 with the Galaxy S4 standards. Can be seen Galaxy Mega is a major release of the S4. This model has rounded edges, the back made of polycarbonate plastic and impressive thickness of 8 mm.
Galaxy Mega (6.3 inches) wider than about 7.5 mm, more than 16 mm and weighs 16.5 grams compared to the Note II. Machines use the LCD screen instead AMOLED Samsung’s familiar, 720p HD resolution. Machine running the operating system Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and battery capacity of 3200 mAh.
Current price of Galaxy Mega has not been revealed, but with parameters such as dual-core 1.7 GHz, 8-megapixel camera or storage only 8 or 16 GB, hard to say this is the high product level.
Shortly before, Samsung has launched the Galaxy Grand Dual configuration with a 5-inch screen, but rather “modest”. Specifically, in the context of firms are launching smartphone with a 5-inch Full HD screen, quad-core chip powerful, Galaxy Grand only WVGA display (480 x 800 pixels) and a dual-core chip speed of 1.2 GHz.
So, with the launch of the new Galaxy Mega, Samsung is the “big” owns the largest smartphone screen on the market. Both the Galaxy Note and Note II, Samsung will have all five samples on a 5 inch screen phone is released and 3/5 of which are located in the mid-range segment (excluding the Note early as a product medium, that number would be 4/5).
With the advantage of giving birth segment phablet, Samsung want to continue strongly into this segment and find the user object with lower incomes but still want to own the very large screen products, and it seems, this is a very new approach, because in this segment, they are a lot of advantages.
