Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 pictures and specs leak

Samsung may well be readying a follow-up to last year’s mid-range phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Mega.

The company might appear to be stepping back from the smartphone screen size arms race with the surprisingly demure Samsung Galaxy Alpha, but don’t think that means it doesn’t have a bunch of whopping great phablets in the pipeline.

We know that the company will announced the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 at a September 3 pre-IFA event. But what of the affordable phablet line kicked off last April in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Mega?

According to reports from China, Samsung hasn’t forgotten about the Mega. In fact, images of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 has emerged.

In addition, we have some specs. The Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 will apparently step back from the oversized brink of the first device with a 5.9-inch 720p display. The original came with a 6.3-inch option.

The Galaxy Mega 2 will reportedly run on a Snapdragon 410 CPU clocked at 1.2GHz, which sounds like an affordable component, but is also Qualcomm’s first 64-bit processor. That’s backed by 2GB of RAM.

Another budget-conscious component is the Galaxy Mega 2’s internal storage, which is apparently set at just 8GB. There will be a microSD slot though.

A 13-megapixel camera and Android 4.4.2 KitKat round out the alleged package.

There’s no news on release dates or prices, but expect to see the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 slip out quietly soon.
