While the standard version of the Galaxy Mega 5.8 features only a dual-core processor, the Galaxy Mega Plus that’s launched in China comes equipped with a quad-core processor. The quad-core processor operates at 1.2GHz per core on the Galaxy Grand Plus, as opposed to 1.4GHz on the dual-core Galaxy Grand. We saw similar approach from Samsung when they released a slightly different variant of the Samsung Galaxy S3, with an added ‘Neo’ tag in the country a few weeks back.
Coming back to the Galaxy Grand Plus, the processor is the only differentiating factor between the regular and ‘Plus’ versions of the device. It still comes with the same 5.8-inch 960 x 540p screen, 1.5GB RAM, 8 mega-pixel rear camera, 1.9 mega-pixel front camera, dual SIM support and a 2600mAh battery.
It’s not clear yet if the device will be available in markets other than China.
