Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 pricing details show up

If the likes of the recent 5-inch devices, or the Galaxy Note 2 just aren't quite big enough for you, then you may be interested in the Samsung Galaxy Mega. A colossal 6.3-inch smartphone, the Mega was announced back in April for launch in Europe and Russia sometime in May. We're now seeing the first signs of UK availability for this monstrous device, and it can be yours in July, though the exact date is still unknown.

Clove is asking £460 (about €541) for the Galaxy Mega 6.3 16GB, saying the first stock is expected in July. The price is similar to the one asked by Handtec (€537) – which doesn’t mention when the device should start shipping.

There’s also an 8GB version of the Mega 6.3, but we have no word on how much this will cost (possibly around £400).

Like the smaller Galaxy Mega 5.8 I9150, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Its features include a 6.3 inch display with 1280 x 720 pixels, 8MP rear camera, 1.9Mp front-facing camera, 3,200 mAh battery, dual-core 1.7GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and MicroSD card support (up to 64GB).

The Mega 5.8 has lower-end specs (including a qHD display and a 1.4GHz dual-core CPU). In consequence, it’s going to be cheaper than the Mega 6.3. From what we’ve previously heard, the 5.8 inch device won’t be released in the UK at all.

Later this year, Samsung might introduce a Mega version of the Galaxy S4 – naturally called Galaxy S4 Mega. But this, of course, is just a rumor for now.
