Whilst Samsung continues to enjoy the success of its Galaxy S4 smartphone, it appears a new range of spin-off devices are on the horizon.
Speculation has long surrounded the oft-rumoured Galaxy S4 mini and S4 Active, but now a new name has made it onto the scene – the S4 Mega.
According to SamMobile, the S4 Mega was listed along with the S4 mini and Active within Samsung’s latest WatchON app, which is detailed within a screenshot of the app itself.
The screenshot details: "added support for upcoming S4 Mega, S4 mini and S4 Active."
With the S4 mini essentially speaking for itself, and the S4 Active believed to be a rugged – potentially waterproof – edition of the Galaxy S4, the Mega is widely anticipated to simply be a larger version of the standard S4.
However, if legitimate, Samsung’s decision to release a larger S4 handset would be a questionable one, considering its already vast offering of extra-large smartphones with its Note range.
Another possibility is that the Mega name has replaced the previously rumoured Galaxy S4 Zoom, which was rumoured to feature a 16-megapixel camera.
Either way, Samsung is keen to squeeze every last drop of commercial value out of the Galaxy S4 – even if it has to release a bounty of different devices in order to appeal to every kind of smartphone user.
