While Samsung’s upcoming smartphone Galaxy Mega 2 is awaiting an official launch, a Malaysian retailer has already listed the large screen phablet up for sale in the region at MYR 1,299.

The device has been spotted on the Malaysian retailer SenHeng’s website along with specifications for RM1,299 or £248. The website also cites an option for Maybank credit card holders to purchase the device in 24 interest-free monthly payments of RM51.88, along with a 10,000mAh battery bank and a car charger.

As per the listing, the Galaxy Mega 2 handset features a 6-inch TFT HD (720 x 1,280 pixels) display, powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor paired with 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage expandable via a microSD card. The smartphone runs on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box.

The Galaxy Mega 2 packs an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies. The device is available in 2 colour options – black and white. No further specifications are listed by the Malaysian retailer.

As the listing specifications does not match the earlier rumours which hinted at a 2GB of RAM and a 12-megapixel rear camera, the report has to be taken with a grain of salt until Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy Mega 2.

It is expected that Samsung might showcase the new Galaxy Mega 2 smartphone alongside the Galaxy Note 4 at IFA 2014 in Germany on September 3.
