The battle for larger screens is still ongoing, and currently, Samsung is leading the way with its recently released Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3.
The device, which features a 6.3-inch LED display, is the company's take on mid-range big screens, as the Mega 6.3 will be available for $500 with no contract or $149 with an AT&T, Sprint, or U.S. Cellular contract.
Offered first by AT&T followed by other carriers in the U.S., the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is looking at a 2-year arrangement with the carrier and is already available now.
BGR added that the other features include a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS, an 8-megapixel camera, and a 3200 mAh battery--pretty standard features that are meant for the mid-range segment.
In a press release, Samsung also added that some of the perks that you can get with the Mega 6.3 include WatchON, which allows for searching TV, movies and sports; Air View; Multi Window display for split screen viewing; Easy Mode; Story Album for creating multimedia content; and S Translator for various language needs.
Are you looking to get this mid-range phablet or are you waiting for the September reveal of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3?
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Bluetooth Certified
Samsung's latest and most anticipated device, the Galaxy Note 3, has recently passed Bluetooth certification, putting it one step closer to its reveal.
According to various reports, the certification only specifies that one model, specifically the NTT Docomo model has already been approved by Bluetooth SIG.
This certification is almost an assurance that the Samsung Unpacked event on September 4 will see the Note 3 as one of the highlights. Furthermore, Android Police revealed that going by the trend of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, which was submitted and debuted in less than 2 months after submission, may also be the same for the Note 3.
Tizen May Debut with S Cloud
The rollout of new technology seemed to be going at a fast pace for Samsung, as the latest rumours suggest that October will not only see the Tizen OS but also the S Cloud.
Perhaps in keeping with the competition, Samsung has supposedly been working on the S Cloud, which would be the answer to the iCloud and Google Drive. And for the longest time, it has been rumoured for reveal as early as the launch of the Galaxy S3.
Phone Arena reported that rumours are again brewing that the S Cloud service may be finished by the end of 2013 and ready for launch with the Tizen 3.0 next year.
Considering that the Tizen will be Samsung's alternative to the Android, it is not surprising that it will also be providing similar services, such as this cloud service for syncing media storage, for a homegrown OS.
And what better timing to reveal an exclusive service than to introduce it in tandem to the OS where it may be making its debut?
