Whenever a hardware manufacturer has a device receiving certification with the FCC, everyone raises a brow. The latest FCC filing that has surfaced belongs to Samsung. The Galaxy Mega 2 is believed to be the device in question with this filing.
Yesterday we saw a leaked image of the 6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega sporting AT&T branding, so it should not be a major surprise that Samsung has finally issued their official confirmation that the device is coming to the U.S. market. The Galaxy Mega has already been released to a few markets around the globe since it was officially unveiled, but official word on the U.S.
Several media outlets overseas in Asia are already getting their hands on the new Galaxy Mega 2. The people over at DroidSans did get a Galaxy Mega 2 and were kind enough to publish a preview of the device rather quickly. The front of the Galaxy Mega 2 features a 6-inch display with 720p resolution. Flip it over and you will find a familiar faux leather back panel.
Although most device manufacturers would classify a device with a 7-inch screen as a tablet, Samsung appears to be intent on introducing a 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 (or possibly Galaxy Mega 7.0 or Galaxy W) that will be considered a smartphone. The device was just recently cleared by the FCC, so it looks like it is definitely heading to the U.S.
Samsung is expected to make the Galaxy Mega 6.3 phablet available soon for Rs 30,990. Sporting a 6.3-inch display, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 packs a 1.7 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile processor and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update.

So does anyone have any idea if these will replace the Galaxy Note series of phones? This seems very interesting as their rumored release dates don't seem that far off. Sam Mobile is usually pretty reliable too. Can't wait!
