Samsung is supersizing its line of Galaxy smartphones with two new devices, including one that has an enormous 6.3-inch screen.
The South Korean tech giant introduced the 5.8 -inch and 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega smartphones Thursday, saying the two phones provide an "optimal viewing experience."
With their release this May starting in Europe and Russia, the Galaxy Mega devices will be two of the largest smartphones out on the market. Until now, the Huawei Ascent Mate, with a 6.1-inch screen, was regarded as having the largest smartphone display.
One of the key reasons for the gigantic screens, which are only about an inch smaller than many popular tablets, is multitasking. Samsung wants to give users enough room to be able to run two apps on their smartphones at the same time comfortably.
