Samsung has quietly listed its latest phablet, the Galaxy Mega Plus, on its official site in China. There is no word yet on the pricing and availability of the Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus.
The Galaxy Mega Plus, seems to be a successor to the Galaxy Mega 5.8 which was launched last year. The company is yet to reveal plans to launch the Galaxy Mega Plus in more markets.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus, much like Galaxy Mega 5.8, supports dual-SIM functionality with dual standby. It comes with a 5.8-inch TFT screen with a qHD (540×960 pixels) resolution and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UI on top, though no word on the version.
Unlike, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 which was powered by a dual-core processor, the Galaxy Mega Plus is backed by a quad-core processor (unspecified chipset) clocked at 1.2GHz. There is no mention of the RAM capacity, but GSM Arena claims that the Galaxy Mega Plus packs 1.5GB of RAM.
It sports an 8-megapixel rear camera, as well as a 1.9-megapixel front facing camera. The phone comes with 8GB of built-in storage, which is expandable via microSD card (maximum capacity unspecified), and has a 2600mAh battery. The Galaxy Mega Plus includes Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GLONASS, GPS and 3G connectivity.
Last year Samsung introduced the Galaxy Mega series which included two devices: Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3. The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is a single SIM device and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box.
It features a 6.3-inch 720×1280 pixel display and sports the same camera as that of Galaxy Mega Plus. It is powered by a dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz. The Galaxy Mega 6.3 has 1.5GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and A-GPS. The phone comes with a 3,200 mAh battery. The phone comes with 16GB internal storage capacity and has a microSD card for expanding the storage up to 64GB.
