We know that Samsung is working on a new device for the Mega series and we’ve got somewhat of confirmation that the handset will be the Galaxy Mega 2. Thanks to a benchmark listing, technical details of the smartphone have been made available.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 will fall between the Mega 5.8 and 6.3 where size is concerned. In fact, it will be just 0.1 inches taller than the former device. While the resolution is pegged at 1280 x 720p, we’re assuming that the panel will be an LCD one, since AMOLED screens are reserved for flagship devices. The handset was spotted with the model number SM-G7508 on GFXBench and it could be the version headed to China.
What’s interesting is that the handset is shown to have a 64-bit processor. The model number of the chipset hasn’t been specified, but we know that it’s from Qualcomm with a 1.2GHz quad core configuration. And the Adreno 306 graphics is only available on the Snapdragon 410 SOC, so that’s more or less confirmed.
Here are the specs of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2:
– Android 4.4.3 KitKat
– 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 64-bit processor
– 5.9-inch 720p HD display
– Adreno 306 graphics
– 2GB RAM, 8GB internal storage
– 13MP rear camera, 5MP front snapper
– NFC, Wi-Fi, GPS, LTE, Bluetooth
There’s no information on when the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 will go official, but you can look forward to the company unveiling it at the IFA 2014 in September. And while Android 4.4.3 KitKat is listed amongst the specs, you can be sure that the device will get updated to Android L in the future, or else what’s the point of a 64-bit processor?
