There were quite a few leaks in the past few months on the features and the specs of the Galaxy Mega 2.

As far as the specification goes, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 will reportedly feature a 5.98-inch display bundled with 720 x 1,280 pixels screen resolution. Therefore the display of the upcoming device is a little short of the Galaxy Mega 6.3 and a bit more than the Galaxy Mega 5.8. This humongous device comes with a dimension of 163.6 x 84.9 x 8.6 mm.
The Galaxy Mega 2 will be powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. The phablet will run on Android v4.4 KitKat OS. When it comes to camera, the device will sport a good 13 MP rear-facing camera unit with LED flash and a 5 MP front-facing shooter.
The phone will come equipped with 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage capacity. In addition, the Galaxy Mega 2 supports microSD card for further expansion. It is worth noting that, a model of the Galaxy Mega 2 with number SM-G750A was spotted in FCC site recently. Hence, the Samsung device can be expected to make a landfall in the U.S. sooner or later.
