The rumored Galaxy Mega 6.3-inch and 5.8-inch devices were both confirmed this morning by Samsung. The guys over at Ubergizmo got their hands on the Mega 6.3, and shared their thoughts on the design, display, and performance. Before we dive into that, here is a quick rundown of specs for both devices:
Galaxy Mega 6.3 next to Galaxy Note 2
The Galaxy Mega looks very similar to the Galaxy S4 and has an industrial poly-carbonate design. With such a large screen, it’s 7.5mm wider, but 1.4mm thinner than the Galaxy Note 2. According to writer Hubert Nguyen, it actually fits in his pocket without being too uncomfortable. Because of having smaller bezels and being slightly thinner, the Mega fits in the hand similarly to the Note 2.
Although the Galaxy Mega 6.3-inch doesn’t feature a 1080p display rumored for the Galaxy Note 3, the 720p display offers great image quality thanks to it being LCD. Samsung may eventually manufacture AMOLED displays for both Megas, but it’s too early to tell at the moment.
Since both are running dual-core processors, performance won’t be as impressive when compared to the Galaxy Note 2 or even the upcoming Galaxy S4. However, the current generation Galaxy Mega phones are geared toward users who want reasonable performance, but a larger display. As we see with every line of smartphones or tablets from manufacturers, each generation gets better and more powerful.

It looks pretty and the CPU is pretty powerful(Exynos 5250 according to GSMA).. If I was into big phones I’d consider buying it..
actually the mega 6.3 is running an A15 dual core CPU and T604 GPU so the performance would be very close to the note 2 and even better it in some areas.
We don’t know if it is exynos 5 dual, considering the higher mid level specs i think not.
i think its same cpu used in Nexus 10
Samsung has confirmed to Ubergizmo that the Galaxy Mega is powered by a
“dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor”. While the exact model isn’t
known, I think that it is probably a Snapdragon S400 chip, since it came
out recently, and would fit the overall hardware specs of this
smartphone which was designed to offer a lot of real-estate, without
becoming a leading-edge device from a specifications standpoint.
Performance-wise, it should lag smartphones equipped with the faster
Qualcomm S600 processor, which is itself slower than Samsungf’s own
Exynos Octa 5.
Damn mediocre spec, hope it’s not true
Still hope it will use Exynos 5
What after mega with high performance you say?……. Samsung Galaxy Omega XD
