Samsung Galaxy Mega

Big screen for a mega viewing experience

And NFC for contactless experiences!

 Samsung galaxy mega 63 with nfc chip

The Mega 6.3 design is the same as the galaxy s4. The 720p HD lower screen resolution is noticeable. (We don’t talk about the 5.8 inch Mega non-nfc phone here.)

Samsung and NFC;

– The Galaxy S4 got a Broadcom controller chip, can’t read the “old” TecTile stickers.
– From ~May ’13 available, “TecTile 2” nfc tags, nfc-forum type 4 tags and no longer the Mifare classic type. TecTile 2 stickers are supported by all nfc devices.
The Samsung Mega also has a Broadcom chip? Hopefully someone will screw apart a Galaxy Mega, so I can update the info here.
In worst case, “old” TecTile and other Mifare classic stickers won’t work.
S-Beam ?; I can’t find confirmation.
Group Play; Content sharing for up to 8 devices on the same Wi-Fi network. With NFC enabled phone just a tap to add a new member or join a sharing Session.

To Big?

Only yourself can answer this question.
The big screen is “to meet our consumers’ varying lifestyles” says Samsung.
If Samsung sells enough, then it’s not too large..?
“it felt surprisingly comfortable to hold and much lighter that you might anticipate” James Trew from Engadget wrote.
The phone has a widescreen mode and  split screen capability for multitasking with more efficiency. Available for a variety of apps including email, messages, MyFiles, S-Memo and S-Planner.

Other features include;

Samsung WatchON; Transforms the phone into an IR remote controller. Connect the device to your TV or home entertainment system.
Samsung Link; Stream videos, photos or music to your TV, tablet or PC.
S-Translator; Instant voice and text translation.
ChatON; Share what’s on your screen.
Air View; Preview information in emails and photos in Gallery.
Story Album; Allows you to create albums of daily events, using a timeline and geo-tag info.

Available; Globally, beginning May from Europe and Russia. “The product availability varies by market and will be rolled out gradually.”
