"While the device has been unveiled, there is no word on its availability in other countries"
Global smartphone maker Samsung has unveiled the latest iteration of its Galaxy Mega 5.8 smartphone in China, featuring a quad-core processor in place of the dual core processor it had earlier. The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 was launched in India last year and became popular among Android fans owing to the big display it offered.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Plus is quite similar to the previous Mega 5.8 launched earlier, except that it gets a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz in place of the 1.4Ghz dual-core processor in its predecessor. The display remains the same, a 5.8-inch LCD with qHD resolution of 540 x 960 pixels.
The new device runs Android 4.3 and supports Samsung’s Multi Window feature as well, which was earlier only available on the larger Galaxy Mega 6.3. The RAM and internal storage are identical as well. The Mega 5.8 Plus gets 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage, along with the capability to expand it by an additional 64GB.
The Galaxy Mega 5.8 plus also has an 8-megapixel camera at the back, capable of recording full HD videos at 30 frames/sec. Alongside, there is a 1.9-megapixel camera provided in the front for video calling and self-portraits.
The device has been unveiled for China, but Samsung has not shared any plans for its launch in other countries as of now. But looking at the devices that Samsung has been launching and the way they have been made available globally it's safe to say that the Galaxy Mega 5.8 Plus will be available in the Indian market in the coming months.
