The specifications for the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 have been leaked online, revealing what consumers can expect from the next iteration of the super sized device. The most important detail revealed by the specs shows that Samsung are targeting the low to mid range consumer with slightly more anemic specs than what are found in the major Samsung flagship smartphones.
Benchmarks from GFX Bench revealed that the Galaxy Mega 2 will feature a 5.9 inch display which rests in between the 5.8 and 6.3 inch options available for the first iteration. Unlike the Galaxy Note 3, the device will sport a lower resolution 1280 X 720 display.
Under the hood, the Galaxy Mega 2 will come packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad core CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz along with 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. The Galaxy Mega 2 features a 12 megapixel rear facing camera along with a 4.7 megapixel front facing camera. As of right now, it is unknown whether or not the device will be able to record 4K video like the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 3 can.
The Galaxy Mega 2 also comes with the standard suite of basic features consumers expect from modern smartphones. Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth, NFC and GPS will be built in along with a gyroscope and accelerometer. Rounding out the specs, the device will run on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.
Apart from the features mentioned above, not much else is known about the Galaxy Mega 2. However, given the reputation of Samsung, some features should be expected. Samsung are known for packing as many quirky and unique features into their devices as possible. With this in mind, consumers should expect some of the built in health features that made their debut in the Galaxy S5.
Even if the device is a budget level smartphone, it seems likely that it will come with a built in heart rate monitor and a number of the health features implemented with the Galaxy S5. Similarly, the build quality should remain the same with the new plastic finish on the back.
