Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence, announced recently the launch of the Samsung GALAXY Mega, a device that combines the portability and convenience of a smartphone with the power, multi-tasking capabilities and extensive viewing experience of a tablet.
The newest addition to the GALAXY family balances an optimal viewing experience on two different screen sizes (6.3-inch or 5.8-inch HD screen), yet is ultra-thin and portable enough to put into a pocket or hold in one hand. The GALAXY Mega offers a mix of popular smartphone and tablet features, such as an effortless user experience, a split screen, multitasking between video and other apps and more.
“Over the past couple of years, the Egyptian market showed great interest in tablets and advanced smartphones. As such, we are keen to continue providing our users with innovative, cutting-edge devices that not only match their expectations, but exceed them,” said Duke Park, Vice President of Samsung Egypt. “We are aware of the great potential of the bigger screen for extensive viewing multimedia, web browsing, and more. So, we are excited to offer another choice to meet our consumers’ varying lifestyles, all while maintaining the high-quality features of the award-winning GALAXY series.”
With 6.3-inch and 5.8-inch HD LCD screen and landscape mode support, the GALAXY Mega enables an exceptional widescreen view for various applications, including web browsing, video, and SNS.
The GALAXY Mega also comes in a light and thin shape for incredible portability and easy, convenient mobile phone use. Customers can stay connected with a variety of new phone features including:

Moreover, the GALAXY Mega allows users to accomplish more with the rich, interactive experience and increased usability of the widescreen mode. Split screen capability for a variety of applications including email, messages, ‘MyFiles,’ ‘S Memo,’ ‘S Planner’, and more, makes for increased efficiency. With the popular ‘Air View’ feature, customers can preview information in emails, photos in Gallery, and speed dial contacts.
The GALAXY Mega is also equipped with an enhanced 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with a 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera, along with a variety of camera modes including ‘Drama Shot’ (merging continuous shots of a moving object), ‘Sound & Shot’ (captures 9 seconds of sound and voice together as the picture is taken to capture moments), ‘Rich tone,’ ‘Sports’ and more.
Both GALAXY Mega 6.3 and 5.8 run on the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean experience, and feature Dual Core Processor, spacious internal storage along with up to 64GB of expandable memory to store favourite apps, music, videos, photos and more. The devices’ advanced software also facilitates more efficient processor use for improved battery life, meaning users can enjoy longer talk time and multimedia use.
