From the Mini to the Mega, AT&T announced two new cool 4G LTE devices: the HTC One mini and the Samsung Galaxy Mega with a whopping 6.3 inch display screen (even bigger than the Samsung Note)!
The Samsung Galaxy Mega™
Beginning August 23, you will be able to enjoy the functionality of a smartphone with the viewing ease of a tablet. AT&T will be the first carrier in the U.S. to offer the Samsung Galaxy Mega for $24 per month with AT&T Next or $149.99 with a two-year agreement.
The 6.3-inch device is the ideal hybrid handset if you want to experience smartphone portability with the immersive experience of a tablet. To see the Galaxy Mega’s features in action, check out the embedded video.
The Galaxy Mega runs Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) and includes many of the popular Galaxy smartphone features:
- WatchON™ is a service that simplifies searching and recommends TV, movies and sports according to personal tastes. With WatchON and the built-in IR blaster, the Galaxy Mega functions as a remote control for home theater equipment.
- Air View™ allows you to hover your finger over a calendar item or email to display a preview of what’s inside without opening it.
- Multi Window display offers split screen viewing and lets you view content in two windows at once, making it easy to multi-task. For instance, you can take notes while watching a video or search the web while responding to a text message or email.
- Easy Mode settings give new smartphone users or simplicity seekers the option to start out with a basic version of your home screen that keeps your favorite apps and features within reach.
- Story Album™ transforms photos you take with the Mega’s 8-megapixel camera into multi-media albums with music, videos and notes.
- S Translator™ helps you get your point across in a variety of languages.
