While Samsung is gearing up for UNPACKED 5 event, a new Android smartphone from the South Korean house, dubbed as Galaxy Mega Plus has caught in AnTuTu benchmarks.

The alleged phone wouldn’t be totally different from the Galaxy Mega 5.8. By going test results, the Galaxy Mega Plus packs a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked 1.2GHz, so no more MediaTek chipset as assumed before.

In addition, other tech specs include 5.8-inch display (960 x 540 pixels); Adreno 305 GPU; 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, that’s expandable via micro SD card slot; 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat; and 2600 mAh battery.

The unit benchmarked at AnTuTu ran Android 4.3, and maybe Samsung will manage to make it run Android 4.4 KitKat before the phone is out.


Compared to its predecessor that comes with Broadcom chipset, the Galaxy Mega Plus will perform 40% better – thanks to Qualcomm SoC – as the benchmark data shows.

Besides, we are about a week away from the annual Mobile World Congress, to be held on February 24-27 in Barcelona, Spain, where Samsung will be showcasing its next flagship model, the Galaxy S5 complemented with the Galaxy Gear 2.

Previous reports suggest the South Korean company will launch two variants of the Galaxy S5: a standard model with plastic shell and a premium version with metal shell, same as Apple did lately with the iPhone 5C and 5S.


  1. Lost me at 8gb internal. I can only hope Samsung isn’t stupid enough to release an 8gb phone since their over the top Touch Wiz takes up almost all of that by itself. The ONLY Samsung app I use on my S4 is the Tv remote. I can’t even use their Bluetooth. It has to confirm every single time. It can’t just simply connect to your BT devices. I have to use the app Power Toggles. I have about 53 disabled or hidden useless apps from them and at&t. Even the apps that pop up when you plug in your headphones is useless. Figured out how to get rid of that too.

  2. Why would they create another Note3. Test the market and see if people want a larger screen. Should have used the 6.3. Ive had 6.3 for 2 months and love it. I thought it would be too large but actually can easily go larger. I want a min 120 fps camera. Larger battery with true 24 hr mega use.

  3. I absolutely love my smasuing galaxy mega 6.3. i will never go to a smaller phone. love it love it love it. not as shitty as everyone says it is. i defiently recommend the galaxy mega 6.3 not 5.8.
