Samsung's oversized phablets continue to grow with the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3. Thankfully, their prices have also been revealed as vendors have started selling the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 in India at INR24900 (RM1364). The Samsung Galaxy 6.3 has been priced at INR31490 (RM1725). The price isn't entirely unexpected as both phablets only have midrange specs and should feature just a bit higher than the Samsung Galaxy Grand.
