Samsung smart phones just keeping like no tomorrow. There is literally a smart phone from the factories of Samsung at every prize point as well as size. If you have not been keeping track in the past few days, all these galaxy devices can be tougher to keep track than the galaxies in the universe. Okay, maybe not that hard either. But, you get the point. So keeping up the avalanche of devices, Samsung announced the Galaxy Mega 5.8 as well as 6.3 for Indian market in an event held at Chennai. As the name suggests, both the devices are in the phablet or the greater than 5 inch category. So let’s quickly run through both the devices and what do they offer.

Relatively speaking, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 is the smaller of the two devices. The display measures 5.8 inches diagonally and is of QHD resolution. The device is run by a dual core processor clocked at 1.4 Ghz, manufactured by Broadcomm and is the same one as that found on the Galaxy Grand. The device is a five point touch screen which is a bit of a bummer. It will come with the latest Android version 4.2.2 and will be powered by 2600 mAh battery. There is a 8 Mega Pixel camera on the rear of the device and a 1.9 MP front facing Camera. There is no NFC on board and the RAM is 1.5 GB. The internal memory is 8 GB with a slot for Micro SD expansion.
The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is the elder brother to the Mega 5.8 and has a Super Clear LCD display measuring 6.3 inches diagonally. The device will be powered by a 1.7 Ghz Dual Core Snapdragon processor. The device has the same 8 MP and 1.9 MP rear and front facing cameras as the Mega 5.8. Both the devices will ship like Air View, Multi Window etc as found on the Galaxy S IV. The Mega 6.3 has a 3200 mAh battery, which should be more than sufficient to get you through a couple of days easily. The phone will also have 16 GB of internal storage and 1.5 GB of RAM, which definitely makes the Mega 6.3 a very interesting device if you can get past the original huge form factor.
Fairly sure though, neither of these two devices will fit your regular size jeans pockets, so if you are interested in them, you need to either carry them in your hand or put them in a bag. Once you are done mentally preparing yourself, then comes the big fat cheque to buy them. The Mega 5.8 will set you back by Rs. 25,100 while the larger Mega 6.3 will wipe Rs. 31,490 off your pocket.
