Galaxy Note 3 vs. Galaxy Mega 6.3: Battle Of The Samsung Phablets
Samsung has a slew of upcoming smartphones to add to its ever-growing portfolio of Galaxy devices. Two smartphones that have been creating quite a buzz are the 6.3-inchers: Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Mega.
Samsung is expected to release both an LTE-enabled and non-LTE version of the Galaxy Mega 6.3 (GT-I9205 LTE and GT-I9200 3G) in black and white by mid-May 2013. The successor to the best-selling Galaxy Note 2 phablet, Galaxy Note 3, is slated to make an IFA debut.
Here we take a look at the impending Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Galaxy Note 3, and how they stack up against each other.
Rumors suggest that the Galaxy Note 3 will feature the Exynos 5 octa-core processor, which combines two quad-core processors: a 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A15 and a 1.2GHz Cortex-A7. On the other hand, the Galaxy Mega is slated to house a dual-core processor that clocks in at 1.7GHz.
The Galaxy Note 3 will likely measure 84.9 x 161.9 x 8.9 mm as opposed to the Galaxy Mega's 88 x 167.6 x7.9 mm dimensions, making the latter taller, wider, and thinner than the former.
The Note 3 is expected to weigh 220 gms. The weight of the Galaxy Mega is currently not known.
The Galaxy Note 3 is speculated to feature a 6.3-inch OLED or LCD screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and 350 ppi. The Galaxy Mega, too, will likely sport a similar-sized 6.3-inch PLS HD resolution display. However, the resolution and pixel density are currently not known.
Moreover, the Galaxy Note 3 is conjectured to feature Samsung's "Youm" flexible display, as well as the eye tracking technology (Eye Pause and Eye Scroll), which Samsung recently patented.
The Galaxy Note 3 is speculated to pack in a 13- or 16-megapixel primary camera, which edges out the 8-megapixel rear-facing snapper on the Galaxy Mega.
Both the phablets are rumored to pack in 2-megapixel front-facing cameras. However, some rumors point to a 3-megapixel secondary camera for the Galaxy Note 3.
The Note 3 is also speculated to pack in the S Orb feature for 360-degree panorama shots.
The internal storage support for the Galaxy Mega is currently not known; however, it is likely that the Galaxy Mega will offer at least 16/32GB of internal storage with the option to expand the storage further using a microSD card.
By contrast, rumors hint that the Galaxy Note 3 will come with 16/32/64GB on-board storage, possibly even a 128GB version. It will also have the option to expand the memory (to an additional 64GB) via a microSD card.
The Galaxy Note 3 is expected to have either 2GB or 3GB of RAM. However, by comparison, the Galaxy Mega will pale memory-wise, as it is expected to tout 1.5GB of RAM.
The Galaxy Mega will likely come with Android 4.1.2 or Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and Samsung's Nature UX on top. The Galaxy Note 3, on the other hand, is expected to come pre-loaded with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
A 3200mAh battery is expected to fuel the Galaxy Mega, whereas the Galaxy Note 3 is rumored to house a 3300mAh or 4000mAh battery.
The Galaxy Note 3 is speculated to debut at the IFA 2013 and release in the second half of 2013 (September), whereas the Galaxy Mega is rumored for week 20, May 13 to May 19.
The Note 3 is also expected to boast an improved S Pen stylus and finger hovering, which will give it a clear edge over the Galaxy Mega.
