Samsung Galaxy W leaks in South Korea

17 May, 2014

A brochure for Korean carrier SK Telecom has leaked and it features an unannounced Samsung Galaxy W. The device looks very similar to the SM-T2558 (the Galaxy Tab line uses SM-T model designation) we reported a couple of weeks ago and is said to feature a 7-inch panel of 720p resolution, "Phoneblet UX" with a landscape mode and Multi Window split-screen multitasking. Rumor has it the back panel of the device will sport a leather-imitating plastic as the one on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The source claims that the device will go international as an over-the-top 7" Galaxy Mega 2.

One interesting bit is the inclusion of a capacitive menu button in place of the recent apps button Samsung is pushing to its latest gadgets and is expected to be seen on a Galaxy Mega 2 handset.

The rest of the specs for the Samsung SM-T2558, which could turn out to be a Galaxy Mega 2, are a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, 8 MP and 2 MP camera duo, 8 GB of expandable storage and Android Jelly Bean 4.3 - nothing ground breaking here, the Android version is worrisome in particular.

For now we can expect the mysterious Samsung Galaxy W to launch on SK Telecom, perhaps as an exclusive. Interestingly there's already a Galaxy W handset internationally, adding more credence to the Galaxy Mega 2 naming.
