Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3

The giant device hits Rogers with 'super-fast' LTE

Rogers has announced today on its official Twitter account that the Canadian carrier will be offering Samsung's latest gigantic handset, the Galaxy Mega 6.3. If you somehow missed this one, the Galaxy Mega is so far the largest phone device in the "Galaxy" lineup for Samsung, with a very familiar build but a pretty crazy screen size.

While Rogers isn't providing any specifics on the device, we can expect it to be much the same as what we've already seen, with a 720p 6.3-inch display, 1.7GHz Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor, Android 4.2 and LTE data support. In its Tweet Rogers indicates that the device will be "coming soon", so keep an eye out for official dates.

I do not understand the point of this phone. Bigger than a Note with absolutely zero of the added functionality the large screen makes possible. I guess there was a need for an under powered giant ass phone (I say phone because I generally feel that the size of a device isn't the sole determining factor in whether it's a phablet or a comically oversized phone).

Ruchelli says:

Yeah.... I don't understand the lack of specs either. Perhaps it's a tester device to see if there is a market for such a screen size?

You have to admit, it's a nice phone. And if you don't like it, then it's not for you. For people who are attracted to large phones (But not so large to be a tablet) and like the mid-ranged specs...then this would be a good choice. Not everyone wants the high-end, over-featured, and over priced pieces of glossy plastic they make today.

Yes.... yes. I'll admit that. I hope it sells well. If it had exact specs as note3 I would get this. I also understand not everyone can afford a flagship device. This would be perfect for someone like you mentioned.

That's an excellent point, I'm sure there are some people out there that just want a big ass phone.

Not so large to be a tablet? It's only .7" smaller than the Nexus 7. It is a tablet.

Nope.

I think I would rather wait till the note 3 because the resolution will be 1080 p and snapdragon 800 . I already have galaxy note 2. If I was to purchase this phone it wouldnt be that great of an update only the screen size would be I big update.An the note 3 is coming with android 4.3 hopefully or at least thats what the specs on the note 3 as of right now.

Anybody who gets this over a note 3 or even the note 2 will regret it.

Your needs may be different than my own, and that is OK. It doesn't mean someone is necessarily wrong.

Bring me the unlocked pentaband GSM/LTE enabled Xperia Z Ultra.

Yeah a Pentaband Xperia Z Ultra would suit me just fine.

Hell... Why don't they just skip all the way to the END and put a phone in a 10" Tablet for those that think bigger is always better.

AC needs to do something so we don't see all these limited articles. I'm in the US, so I don't care who in England or Canada is carrying the latest phone. I shouldn't see them. So how about having code that looks at my location and removes posts with locality tags.

Wouldn't you like to know what's going around the world? Don't get me wrong, I feel the same way like you sometimes. But let me explain. What if a restaurant gave you unlimited buffet for the price of ONE "a la carte" dish? You would go for the buffet, choose the dishes you want, skip the ones you don't like. AC is like an "unlimited free buffet" of tech world with different dishes of different countries. You wouldn't want to know about U.S all the time. Sometimes you would like to see if we Aussies have Kangaroo mobile covers and share a laugh with your U.S. friends :-)
