This smartphone season, known to the general public as summer, has been chock full of leaks and releases, and it’s not even half way over. Today, we learned of what might be a new iteration of Samsung’s Galaxy Mega 6.3 mega-smartphone, and it could be heading for AT&T for inspection.
A few weeks ago, on May 15, @evleaks shared that “The Samsung SM-G750 self-identifies as ‘Mega 2’”, giving no doubts to anyone seeing the model number float around the Internet since then. Today’s leak comes from a shipping manifest from the company Zauba, detailing a manifest for the SM-G750A. The manifest details that it is a Samsung mobile phone, with a 6.3” screen, and not for retail sale. How do we know it is bound for AT&T? Because it says so. The manifest has the line “SM-G750A_NA_ATT” in the row for June 2nd 2014, updating us that the phone is almost certainly bound for North America, for AT&T, and can probably be identified for AT&T by the ‘A’ at the end of its model number.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega was released last year, after the Galaxy S IV took the world by storm, but the Mega played a different game: screen size. The Mega was released globally in two screen sizes: 5.8” and 6.3”, both being 720p screens, 1.7 Ghz dual core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and Samsung’s usual setup of 8mp camera, Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.2), expandable storage, and removable battery. This phone hasn’t seen much action, because people have discounted it as a device that is too niche but also too mid-tier to buy over the Galaxy S IV, One (M7/2013 model) or other flagships last year.
This year, though, Samsung look sot be readying a 6.3” Mega 2 device, both globally with the SM-G750, and in the United States again, with the SM-G750A. The Mega 2 will reportedly have a 720p screen again, powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 running at 2.3 Ghz. The Mega 2, based on the import records, seems to be in final stages of testing before the real leaks, like photos and regulatory approval forms linked to it come about and out of the woodwork of the Internet. Keep an eye out for the latest.
