Phones with large displays tend to be associated with high price tags. After all Samsung was the one who kicked off the trend with its Galaxy Note that was priced like a flagship smartphone, so we guess we can’t blame customers who associate big screens with expensive prices. However back in 2013, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Mega lineup which featured huge displays – 5.8-inches and 6.3-inches – with somewhat affordable price tags.
Now if you wanted a phone with a huge display but you don’t want to break the bank, rumor has it that Samsung could be working on a successor to the Galaxy Mega lineup, and now thanks to a sighting on GFXBench, possible hardware specs of the successor might have just surfaced.
Usually benchmarks don’t really name the actual device, but uses its model number, and from there we can infer as to which phone it could be. However in this case, the benchmark was titled, “3D Graphics Performance of Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 (SM-G7508).” Assuming the benchmark results are accurate, the Galaxy Mega 2 will pack a 5.9-inch display and will have a 720p HD resolution.
It also appears to be powered by a Qualcomm quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and will be accompanied by 2GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage, and a 12MP rear-facing camera. The front camera will be a 4.7MP affair that will be capable of capturing video in Full HD. Other than that it will come with standard hardware like an accelerometer, gyroscope, GPS, NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth, and so on.
No word on whether there might be another Galaxy Mega in the works since there were two models to choose from last year, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more info. In the meantime what do you guys make of the specs?
