Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Plus with 1.2 GHz Quad Core Launched in China

Samsung has launched the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Plus in China today and the only conspicuous chance with regards to the predecessor is the 1.2 GHz quad core processor under the hood instead of 1.4 GHz dual core that we saw in Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 launched last year.


The 5.8 inch TFT LCD display still bears qHD 960 x 540 pixel resolution which shoots down the pixel density to 190 ppi, which is below average considering the display size.

There is no word on RAM backing the 1.2 GHz quad core processor. Internal memory is extendable to 64 GB. On the software front, Samsung is offering Android 4.2 jelly bean operating system. Other software features include Group Play, Samsung Link, S Translator, Story Album, Multi Window and ChatON Messaging service.

The imaging hardware also remains same with an 8 MP shooter at the back with LED flash and a 1.9 MP shooter at the front. The phone is 8.99 mm thick and weighs 183.5 grams, which puts it in the same league as its predecessor.

The battery capacity is 2600 mAh and connectivity features include 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS with GLONASS. Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Plus also features Dual SIM connectivity. There is no word on the price or India availability as of yet.
