Samsung’s 7-inch phone spotted at FCC

Samsung’s 7-inch phone spotted at FCC - read the full textOk so calling Samsung’s upcoming 7-inch ‘Galaxy Mega 2’ (the supposed name for the device) a phone isn’t really appropriate: it’s more a tablet with a GSM antenna. There have been some murmurings about the device on the internets, but nothing really concrete with regards to a US release; until...

Or the fact that Samsung will produce and sell this as a phone ? What's keeping you from using this device as a small portable tablet with gsm capabilities ? Provided you'll buy it. Provided you're into tablets. By the way: I wish you a very comfortable web browsing on your "handy & generous" iphone screen. You could loose yourself on that surface. You could even skate. Do you see the screen anymore after more than one finger is used ?

well, how about a 70" TV and fit it with a satellite cable receiver and a gsm radio that people will carry around? anything more than 4.5" is nonsense.

And yes, Samsung produce more than 50% maybe a lot of crappy devices, but how one would find the best recipe, if not trying anything ? It's like on a political scene. Sooner or later the biggest party will engulf all the non significant others. Regardless the ideas. Like Nokia once did. Hence my opinion.

7 inch is not a phone . Just because it has calling capabilities it cannot be called a phone.
What's next ? A smart tv with SIM card that is called a phone because it can call people ?

The worst part is once you've purchase an android smartphone. e.g. Galaxy S5. After 2 years. You won't get any more android updates. When you go to a nearest samsung store. They would advise you to purchase a newer version of samsung smartphone. I'm not a typical user who waste $5,000 per 8 months only purchasing a smartphone.

Samsung is in the vanguard of scientific progress ! They created a current with the "Note" line, and now the wave is like a tsunami. It's only logical they are pulling this out. The future is this ! Big phone-small tablet like devices ! In a few years, 6'-7' gsm "mobiles" will be a common thing.

A 7" screen is too big for me but i can understand the appeal for some people.

Sick of the candy bar design.
Every minute they release a model that looks identical.

hmm, the code is T2558.
so since it's bearing the T letter, then it's a tablet, not a phone.

btw, the buttons placement is weird.
power button and volume buttons on one side?
that's not typical Samsung style.

one day people stop buying TV's, and hang the phones to the wall, no surprise if they launch 20 inch smartphone, we just need a assistant to maintain that phone or they supply assistant along with the phone to carry phone anywhere with us......this is mainly sammy concept.....just ruining the mobile market with unnecessary sizes...

As long as it has a high RAM, at least Quad-Core, and goid chipset, it'd be a great phablet.

This one is interesting - a 7-incher device with removable battery. The only thing missing for me is an integrated active Wacom digitizer pen (S Pen). I'm pretty frustrated with my Note 8 having to plug in some 5 hours+ later after continuous use. I need that spent battery just taken and be replaced with a fresh one. It only takes just over a minute with the replacement and startup.

I'd buy one with an S Pen and removable battery.
