Samsung Unveils Galaxy Phones with Massive Displays

Believing that 4.99-inch S4 and the 5.55-inch Note 2 are still not big enough, Samsung has unleashed its largest Android smartphone to date, the Galaxy Mega. Borrowing some of the features of the flagship Galaxy S4, the two Galaxy Mega handsets come with 6.3-inch and 5.8-inch screen sizes, with the bigger variant sporting more high-end specs. Both devices run the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update and will come with software enhancements like Multi-window, Group Play, WatchON, Air View, Samsung Link, S Translator, S Travel, Story Album and lots more. Samsung says both devices will be available from May, launching in Europe and Russia before a wider international rollout.
