As we wrote earlier this week. Samsung is releasing two new Android devices with huge displays. As the model name reveals the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3 are a 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch smartphones.

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is a LTE model powered by a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor. The 6.3-inch display has a HD 1280 x 720 resolution display. Except from the display size, you will not find this model differentiate itself much from older Samsung models. A dual-core processor is the norm these days as well as a 8 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac. What's interesting with Galaxy Mega 6.3 is of course the display size and the fact that it is running Android 4.2. The battery is quite powerful with 3200 milliampere-hour. Having a 6.3-inch display means it will be tool large for most consumers. Well, that is what we said about the Galaxy SIII 4.8-inch display as well and we all know how the result of that prediction. But the 199 gram weight will probably be an issue. Add a microSD card, and we are very close to 200 gram. That is quite heavy for a smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is the other smaller Android smartphone announced today. Again, the name says it all. It has a 5.8-inch display with a lower 540 x 960 pixel resolution TFT display. It is also less powerful with a 1.4 dual-core processor. But it too runs the latest version of Android. Galaxy Mega 5.8 lacks LTE support but it has Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and GPS. The 8 GB internal storage can be expanded with additional 64 GB microSD card. The weight si 182 gram.

Both smartphones has got some of the features introduced with the Galaxy S4 last month. Drama Shot, Sound & Shot, S Travel, Group Play and Story Album. As usual, Samsung fails at mentioning the talk time and standby time for its new models. We are guessing the large 6.3-inch display will drain battery faster than normal 4-inch devices but the larger 3200 mAh battery will probably compensate a little for that.
