AT&T has announced it will offer the Galaxy Mega as of Friday for $149.99 with a two-year contract or for $24 per month under its early upgrade plan called AT&T Next.
Sprint said it plans to offer the smartphone "later this year" with unlimited data plans, while U.S. Cellular has yet to announce launch details, International Business Times reported Tuesday.
The Mega's 720 x 1280 HD Super Clear LCD display, approaching tablet size, is aimed at optimal watching of movies and music videos, reading books and playing games.
Available in 8GB and 16GB options in black or white, the Mega will run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, comes with 1.5GB of internal RAM and has a removable 3,200 mAh battery, Samsung said Monday.
Storage can be expanded up to 64GB with an external micro SD card.
Even at 6.3 inches, the Mega isn't the leader in the phablet race; Sony that honor with its 6.4-inch Xperia Z Ultra smartphone.
