Galaxy Mega 6.3 DUOS Leaked Featuring Dual-SIM GSM/CDMA Capabilities

samsung-galaxy-mega-6-3-duos-1

Not too long ago, the Droid X’s screen size of 4.3″ was way too big for most people to handle. Fast forward to today and we are getting another look at one of Samsung’s upcoming Mega devices. Announced by Samsung a few months ago, the Mega line features two models with massive 5.8 and 6.3″ screens. This new version pictured above features a dual-SIM setup with GSM and CDMA compatibility, but we shouldn’t get too excited just yet.

There is a slim chance that we could eventually see this device featured on Verizon’s network, but the AT&T LTE model that we saw pass through the FCC is much more likely to be seen in the States. The specs remain unchanged, featuring a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 720p LCD screen, Android 4.2.2 and a massive 3,200mAh battery.

This CDMA/GSM variant will most likely be heading to China, but if Verizon did pick it up, would anyone want to give up your 7″ tablet for a 6.3″ phone?

    Yes! More people than you can imagine with poor eyesight want a 6.3″ CDMA (Verizon Compatible) phone.

    Another phone Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 with dual sim supports on its way to join the other phones available in market. The phone will have large display and dual sim and most of its features will be same to Galaxy Mega 6.3 with single sim, which is already in market.

    Ill wait for the not 3

    I wouldn’t get this because of the weaker processor and the 720p screen. Now before someone goes and says something stupid like you can’t really tell the difference between 720p and 1080p screen well that might be somewhat true for devices that were not ment to be held pretty close to your face!

    • Minh Ly

      It’s honestly not something stupid because it’s true. When you have such a small screen, you really can’t tell how many lines you can see in regards to 720p vs. 1080p. Unless you’re a pilot with amazing vision.

  • David Narada Brown

    why does a phone this big need that physical button at the bottom? thats a turn off!

    • Destroythanet

      Agreed. When it’s this close to the size of a Nexus 7, they should go with on-screen soft keys.

    Okay, let’s look at why the MEGA line is already horrible:

    -The 5.8″ model has a qHD display. qHD. ON A 5.8″ DISPLAY. Let that soak in for a bit.
    -The 6.3″ model has a 720p display. On a device with a 6.3″ display.
    -The battery for the 6.3″ model is only 3,200 mAh. That sounds big, but the 5.5″ Galaxy Note 2 has a 3,100 mAh battery. You’re telling me they increase the size of the display by almost another inch and could only fit another 100mAh worth of battery in there? I call BS.

    This is just scratching the surface, but really Samsung… what were you thinking?

    • Destroythanet

      A Nexus 7 at 720p still looks pretty good, though.

      • Steve Benson

        It’s tolerable, but I would not say it’s good.

        • https://www.facebook.com/aaron.williams.125 Champion1229

          What is weird is if this was a year ago you would be going on about how 720p on a 4-8 inch device is absolutely amazing but now everyone is complaining because they don’t have 1080p on their phones / tablets…

    • Minh Ly

      It sounds like you’re saying having a 720p screen is a bad thing. Television sets have a 720p display so I doubt that you would notice if it was a 720p screen vs 1080p screen on a 6.3″ device. Also it’s 720p likely to avoid consuming too much battery.

      • bd1212

        This is true, but usually people watch tv from 10-15 feet away, not within inches like we do with our phones. Plus, why downgrade when 1080p is quickly becoming the standard?

        • Avery Dejuan Herron

          This is exactly what I just said up there and somebody down voted me lol

      • Steve Benson

        720p in a television is terrible. 1080p or gtfo.

        • Avery Dejuan Herron

          you are my hero

        • David Narada Brown

          its not that clear cut. most phones run at 60 frames per second, at 1080 p fast pace action can be blurred a little. most good tvs now run at 120 htz this allows the tv to refresh each picture at a faster rate keeping the image sharp and clear. I know this doesnt effect you writing emails or text or reading, but watching videos or playing games on a phone, 720p is your sweet spot.

    Gnex is just the right size for me, anything bigger is a hindrance more than a feature

  • Blue Sun

    3,200 mAH is not a massive battery for a screen of this size. Just sayin’.

    • greyhulk

      All of the reviews I have seen peg battery life as better than the Note II. The lower resolution screen and dual core processor seem to compensate well for the increased screen size.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    This MEGA line is junk.

  • http://www.dannyayers.net DAyers

    Yes… I need a pocket tablet that I can also get calls on in emergencies. I use like 20 minutes of calls per month (unless I have a conf. call) and use my phone for browsing, email, apps etc..much more often = screen + battery life are the most important features.

    Only issue would be if it gets too big to carry around in front pocket.

    • Destroythanet

      “Only issue would be if it gets too big to carry around in front pocket.” Yup, that will decide the true upper-limit for these big phones. GN2 still passes that test. I’m curious whether the Mega will.

  • Destroythanet

    It needs to pass my pocket test haha. My GN2 fits and isn’t uncomfortable when I walk around. I’m curious to see if the Mega is still within my limits.

  • mustbepbs

    6.3″ 720p screen?

    I think I just threw up a little.

    • kixofmyg0t

      You think that’s bad? The Galaxy Mega 5.8 is qHD. Just take a sec to think about that.

      • mustbepbs

        My eyes!

    • Blue Sun

      That added with that home button takes me over the top too.

      • michael arazan

        I’m curious where they are going to put the Home Button on their New HQ they are building in the US

    • Steve Benson

      Yeah, it’s terrible. The max size you should go with 720p in 4.5 inches. Anything larger needs to be 1080p or it just looks lackluster.

      • hoosiercub88

        720p on my Note II looks just fine.

  • Bigwavedave25

    Baaah… where’s the s-pen? I’m ready for the Note3 hypebeasting to kick up!! :)

    And I think I’ll keep my N7.

  • TheRobotCow

    Dear Google,
    Dual-sim technology. This is what you need for the next Nexus phone!!!

    • hoosiercub88

      Why?

      • TheRobotCow

        Ultimately so it could be a true “restriction free” phone. I’m sure i’m not the only one who wants a nexus with Verizon. Not only that but i think it would be easier having just one phone for a market.

        Question for the community.
        Would you guys pay $399 maybe even $449 for a Nexus phone if it was able to run on Verizon, Sprint, At&t, T-mobile and all the other smaller carriers here in the Usa?

        • hoosiercub88

          I don’t think you quite understand how/why DualSIM works..

          Firstly you can put 150 SIM slots in a device and they’re still not going to work with Verizon unless said devices MEID is enabled in Verizon’s system. You can however, put SIM cards of other carriers in SIM-Unlocked Verizon devices and use them on the other networks. Multiple SIM slots do not automatically make some sort of magical compatibility. All the compatibility you could ever want can be obtained with a single SIM slot, so long as all those carriers are on board. Sprint doesn’t use SIMs their devices have this built in, unlike Verizon, but much like Verizon used to do. This is why Verizon has phased out the *228 activation ritual on LTE enabled devices because the device activates over their network just like any other SIM powered GSM phone in the world.

          Having multiple SIM slots on the next Nexus isn’t going to happen because it’s not necessary.

          • TheRobotCow

            Ah ok. Thanks for the clarification.
