Someone in South Korea must like massive phones, because Samsung has just announced 2 more gigantic mid-range phones. The accurately named Galaxy Mega will be available in both 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch versions for those who think the Galaxy Note 2 isn’t quite big enough for them.

These devices are clearly meant to be mid-range devices, packing fairly modest specs. The 6.3 inch device has a 720p display, LTE, 8GB or 16GB of storage and an unknown 1.7GHz dual-core processor while the smaller one packs only a qHD display, HSPA, 8GB of storage and a 1.4GHz dual-core processor. Both, however, have an 8MP camera, 1.5GB of ram, run the latest and greatest of Jelly Bean and also have an IR blaster if you want a 6.3-inch touch screen TV remote.

The devices will be on sale in Europe next month but there isn’t any word on Australian release dates or pricing, but judging by the specs, it will certainly be cheaper than a Galaxy Note II.

Check out the comparison shot below from Ubergizmo of the Mega against the 5.5-inch Note II.
