Galaxy Mega

6.3-inch handset spotted wearing prepaid carrier's branding

Following the gigantic smartphone's launch on AT&T this summer, it appears the Samsung Galaxy Mega (6.3) might be going prepaid with a launch on MetroPCS. TmoNews has acquired a couple of shots of what appears to be a Metro-branded Mega, which it says will be SIM-locked to the MetroPCS network.

We've reviewed both the international and AT&T versions of the Mega and found that it makes more sense as a miniature tablet than an oversized phone. It's got a 6.3-inch 720p display, a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, 1.5GB of RAM and 8 or 16GB of storage, expandable via microSD. The Galaxy Mega will reportedly launch on MetroPCS before the holidays.

Samsung Galaxy Mega could be headed to MetroPCS


This phone would be great on T-Mobile. You can have an s4 or htc one as your daily driver. Then when you need a bigger tablet like phone for a job or going out of town then you swap sim cards.

I don't believe this has all the crap that version of Touchwiz that's on the S4 so......if the MediaTek processor in the Tab 3 7.0 can handle the older version of Touchwiz rather well than the S400 should do fine if its the older version of Wiz on there.

I would have been all over this phone if it was built like the s4 and note 3 but they shortedbit onbhorse power. I have big hands and though the s4 works just fine I would love to watch me vies and things like tharbon that massive screen. I rarely ever have my phone to my face aobhow big it is does not matter.

Hmm known this was coming since over a month ago, when it was announced at the metropcs/samsung meeting, when they let us know it will be coming within oct to november, still is not as good as an S4 spec wise, and can imagine performance as well.

I was all set to buy one of these for use on T-Mobile, but after playing with it in the store, the phone was just too big, and the specs were just too midrange. In addition, there is zero development for the US versions right now. Don't know if that ever will change.

I'm pretty sure, it's going to be GSM. As far as I know, there are no CDMA versions of this handset.
