Samsung this evening has finally officially unveiled the Galaxy Mega 2, a follow-up to last year’s Galaxy Mega 5.8, for overseas countries. But while the device has a gargantuan screen, its specs are nothing to be too impressed with. The Galaxy Mega 2 features a 6-inch display, up from the 5.8-inch model it is replacing, with a 720p display.

The device is powered by a 1.5GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and runs Android 4.4 with TouchWiz on-top. The processor is most likely of the Exynos variety, which is what Samsung tends to use overseas. The Galaxy Mega 2 features a 2.1MP front-facing shorter paired with an 8MP rear-facing sensor. It also features 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for expandability.

What remains a mystery at this point for the Galaxy Mega 2, however, is U.S. availability. The original Galaxy Mega was available on AT&T, at least for now, the Galaxy Mega 2 will only be available in non-North American countries. Should it launch in the United States, it will certainly be unique with its 6-inch display. As you may remember, we were rather fond of the 6.3-inch variant of Galaxy Mega last year.
