    Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 appears in China, coming to Malaysia soon?

    The successor to the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3 has appeared with the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2. The 5.98-inch phablet was recently spotted at China's Tenaa revealing pics and tech specs. These tech specs and features include a 64-bit 1.2GHz Qualcomm snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB RAM, 8GB storage with support for microSD flash memory, a 5.98-inch display with 120 x 1280 pixel resolution, 13MP rear camera with LED flash, 5MP front camera and Android 4.4 KitKat. Since it is coming out for China it supports TD-LTE which is the 4G LTE version in China. The phablet measures in at 163.6 x 84.9 x 8.6mm which is quite large despite having fairly thin bezels and an artifical leather backside. No specific Malaysia release dates or pricing yet, but if it is already out in China, it should be here in Malaysia soon.

    While compatibility with just the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Note 10.1 2014 Edition is one of the main constraints of the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, this may no longer be the case as Samsung have announced that quite a few Galaxy devices are going to get compatible soon. This includes the Samsung Galaxy S4Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy Note II as soon as they receive their Android 4.3 updates, which are currently being rolled out in phases. Following these are the Samsung Galaxy S4 MiniS4 ActiveMega 5.8Mega 6.3 and S4 Zoom. While the software update will again be released in phases, these devices will begin getting the update by the end of October.
