Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus with 5.8 inch display and faster 1.2 GHz quad core processor launched

While Samsung hasn’t shown much interest in adding more members to the Galaxy Mega series, it just launched the Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus, which is a slightly upgraded version.


The Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus is an upgraded version of the Galaxy Mega 5.8 with all the exact same specs except for a faster 1.2 GHz quad core processor instead of the earlier 1.4 GHz dual core processor. The 5.8 inch display with resolution of 960 x 540 pixels remains untouched. There is also 1.5 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage.

The Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus is also equipped with the same rear facing 8 MP camera with LED flash. There is also a front facing 1.9 MP camera. The company could at least update the OS to Android v4.3 but instead loaded it with Android v4.2.2. The phone runs on a 2600 mAh battery. As of now the handset is available only in China, but there is a possibility of global rollout.
