Powered by the a 1.4GHz dual-core Broadcom chipset, the Mega 5.8’s comes with 8GB of built-in storage expandable up to 64GB via a microSD card. Surprisingly, the smaller phone is slightly thicker than the Galaxy Mega 6.3 at 9mm, and weighing 182 grams. The Mega 5.8 is powered by a 2,600mAh battery, and comes in a dual-SIM, Duos variant.

We are eager to see just how well the two new Samsung phablets will do in India. The company’s first two phablets, from the higher-end Galaxy Note family, have done exceptionally well in the country. By offering cheaper phablet devices, Samsung is obviously trying to cater to a wider audience, and continue cashing in on its smartphone-tablet hybrid popularity.
