Samsung has sent out invites to the tech press in India that it is going to announce a new Galaxy-series smartphone in the country on May 28. The invite is clearly hinting at Galaxy Mega smartphone by stating the event as a ‘mega launch of newest Galaxy.‘
Now, we have learnt from a trusted source that Samsung is going to announce Galaxy Mega 5.8 duos tomorrow and it will be priced at INR 25,999. The phone will go on sale in the next few days.
Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 duos was originally announced last month along with Galaxy Mega 6.3. The phone features 5.8-inch qHD display, 1.4GHz dual-core processor and Android 4.2.
The phone also comes with dual-SIM support, 8MP rear camera, 1.9MP front camera and 1.5GB of RAM. Other features of the phone include 8GB of internal storage and microSD card slot.
The phone also packs several software customisations that were first introduced in Galaxy S4
The pricing seems decent for the features but it would be interesting see the uptake of the phone in the country – whether the consumers are ready to grab smartphones with such massive display sizes.
