Back in 2013, Samsung launched a series of smartphones under the Galaxy Mega lineup. These devices were larger than your average smartphone, and in the case of the Galaxy Mega 6.3, it seemed to blur the lines between a smartphone and a tablet. Now if you thought 6.3-inches is ridiculous for a phone, how does 7-inches sound to you?
If you might recall, recent rumors and FCC sightings seem to have “confirmed” that Samsung is working on a new Galaxy Mega in the form of the Galaxy Mega 7.0. Now thanks to a leaked image (pictured above), it seems that we now have a good look at the upcoming handset, although to be fair by itself, it handset does not look like a 7-inch device.
Based on what we can see, it looks like Samsung is not done with using textured designs for the backplate of the phone, because the photo above seems to suggest that the Galaxy Mega 7.0 could feature a faux leather design, much like the Galaxy Note 3, which also came with a faux leather backplate.
This particular Galaxy Mega will be similar to its predecessors in the sense that it will feature mid-ranged specs. This is a way for Samsung to push phablets into the hands of customers who might be unwilling to pay for the Galaxy Note 3. For starters the Galaxy Mega 7.0 is rumored to come with a 720p HD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of onboard storage. Either way we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info, so check back with us at a later date for the details.
