Is it a smartphone or a tablet? With a 6.3-inch HD screen, the new Samsung Galaxy Mega functions as on oversized smartphone, with a display just a tad smaller than some tablets. The device runs on Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), powered by a 1.7 GHz dual core CPU and 1.5 GB of internal RAM. Its 6.3″ HD Super Clear LCD (720×1280) display beautifully showcases photos, e-books, magazines, movies, or games. Picture taking on the Mega’s 8-megapixel camera is a breeze thanks to zero shutter lag, and ample storage is available via external microSD card (up to 64 GB).
The Galaxy Mega allows users to enjoy many of the benefits of Samsung’s Galaxy S4, on an even larger screen. The Galaxy Mega is also SAFE (Samsung for Enterprise), allowing users to work and play with confidence that their photos, emails and contacts are protected. Built with enough power to get you through the longest work days, the Galaxy Mega is powered by a removable 3,200 mAh battery for extended use on a single charge.
