Samsung Galaxy W 7 inch – soon to launch in South Korea soon from Galaxy Mega family


Roughly a month ago we’ve told you that Samsung is working on a biggest yet member of the Galaxy Mega family. The upcoming 7-inch model marked as SM-T2558 may be heading to South Korea where it will be known as Galaxy W.

A leaked brochure caught by the savvy folks of SamMobile suggests this everything-but-portable device will boast a “Phoneblet UX” with landscape mode and split-screen function, which is also known as Multi-Window. The SM-T2558 will boast a Galaxy Note 3-like faux leather back, and initially be offered by SK Telecom.

It’s believed to be a variant of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2, which will launch on SK Telecom in Korea in the coming weeks, as shown in the leaked flyer above. The device, if it’s the same one spotted on TENAA, should pack a massive 7-inch display sporting a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

Other rumored features include a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of storage with a microSD card slot, 8MP camera for photos and videos, 2MP front-facing camera, and should come with Android 4.4.2 KitKat as its operating system.

There’s no confirmation if the device is the same SM-T2558 as seen on TENAA so a proverbial amount of salt is required. We’re hoping things will clear up when the handset hits retail.

The Galaxy W is said to have a “Phoneblet UX” which includes a split-screen feature and landscape mode. It may also have a faux leather back like the Galaxy Note 3, a design element that Samsung has taken a strong liking to recently. There’s certainly no guarantee that the Galaxy W will be branded as Mega 2 outside South Korea, but so far that’s the best possible explanation.
