Be honest, what was the first thought that popped into your minds when seeing Samsung unveil the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3 last month? I for one filed the two under experimental devices that Sammy was only going to limitedly bring to emerging markets.
Why? Because there was simply no way the Koreans could turn such niche devices, humongous “phablets” with not quite top-notch specs, into global, mainstream commercial hits. Or so I thought.
Because apparently the Mega 6.3 could see daylight on AT&T in the near future. As in this summer. The info is far from confirmed, especially that it’s based on circumstantial evidence. How so? Well, notorious leaker @evleaks tweeted yesterday that a device bearing the codename “Melius” and the model number SGH-I527 was headed to AT&T with on-board Android.
Now, we don’t know for sure what will be the market name of this thing, but we’ve seen the SGH-I527 moniker tied to the Mega 6.3 in the past, so chances are the big guy is indeed being prepped for Ma Bell.
If that’s the case, I’m personally very curious how America’s number two carrier plans to price the Mega. Remember, the “phablet” is much larger than the Galaxy S4, but only has high-end-ish specs, including a 720p screen, Snapdragon 400 CPU and 1.5 GB of RAM.
