Samsung have released a new phone, currently only in China, called the Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus.
Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus:
The Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus is the same as the widely available Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3, with the exception that the processor has been boosted to a 1.2GHz Quad-Core processor. All the other features, which consist of a 5.8 inch qHD screen (960×540), 8MP rear camera and 1.9MP front camera, Micro-SD card, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi and Dual Sim slots running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The whole thing is powered by a 2600mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus has been given the reference number GT-I1953P. With its big screen, it has the ability to split the screen in two, allowing you to run two apps side by side, which was introduced in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and has been recently improved with the launch of the Galaxy Tab Pro and Note Pro. Along with this functionality, the Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus will come with S-Translate, Group-Play, Story Album and the current release of the Samsung TouchWiz UI.
It’s not clear at this time if the Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus will be launched outside of China. The official Samsung China page doesn’t give a price directly, but you have to choose where you buy it. At this point, Google Translate fails me so I can’t give a price. It’s fair to guess, however, that the price would reflect the added power of the unit, but could still be the same price as it is in Europe to stay competitive.
