Samsung plan is to sell about 1 million Galaxy Mega 5.8 units
Just a while ago Samsung announced the phablet family of devices called Galaxy Mega (5.8″, and 6.3″ inchers) and according to industry sources it has plans to manufacture at least a million of the smaller of two – Mega 5.8 devices. Samsung contacted with several Taiwanese display manufacturers to order one million 5.8″ screens.
This optimism about the Galaxy Mega 5.8 sales may be based on good performance of the mid-range Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos. Sources state that in May the number of shipments of 5-inch WVGA screens for the Grand will reach 2 million.
Samsung has its own screen manufacturing facilities, but apparently the company will use them for the production of Super AMOLED displays, outsourcing mid-range screens to Taiwanese makers. There’s no info on how many displays were ordered for the bigger Mega phablet, the Galaxy Mega 6.3, but as we can see, a South Korean Gigant obviously thinks there’s a market for large phablets.
