This month, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 from Samsung will finally hit the States. When launched, this line of devices was only available overseas, but it looks as though America was in need of even bigger phones. The Galaxy Mega features a whopping 6.3″ HD display (720 x 1280), plus a dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz.

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.

This new version pictured above features a dual-SIM setup with GSM and CDMA compatibility, but we shouldn’t get too excited just yet. (more…)

Previously, it was stated by Samsung at the time of the device’s introduction that it would be a European exclusive, but we all know how things change in this industry. (more…)
