Samsung's Thailand site lists the smartphone without any details of pricing and availability. The successor to the Galaxy Mega 5.8 (Review | Pictures) was available to buy in Malaysia at MYR 1,299 (roughly Rs. 24,700).
Considering that the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 is now officially listed in Thailand, we can expect the new phablet to reach Indian shores soon.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 (SM-G750F) features a 6-inch TFT HD (720x1280 pixels) display. It is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core (unspecified chipset) processor coupled with 1.5GB of RAM.
It runs the recent Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box. The Galaxy Mega 2 comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage, which is further expandable via microSD card (up to 64GB).
It sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, while there is a secondary 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera also onboard.
On the connectivity front, the smartphone offers LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Micro-USB, GPS, Glonass, NFC, and Bluetooth options. Notably, the Galaxy Mega 2 is listed as a single SIM device in Malaysia; however, considering Samsung launched the Galaxy Mega 5.8 last year in India with dual-SIM support, we can expect a dual-SIM variant of the smartphone for the Indian market.
The smartphone packs a 2800mAh battery with no word on talk time and standby time. The Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 is listed in Cosmic Black and Blizzard White colours.
Samsung had officially slashed the price of the Galaxy Core 2 by roughly 33 percent to Rs. 8,007 from Rs. 11,990, while the price of Galaxy S Duos 3 was slashed to Rs. 7,497 from an earlier price tag of Rs. 8,150.
