Samsung's 7-inch Galaxy Mega Phablet Spotted At FCC

Samsung has filed documents with the FCC detailing a new 7-inch (!) phone with a 720p resolution, a quad-core processor and an 8-megapixel back-side camera.

Last year Samsung launched the Mega mid-level handset with a 6.3-inch display so it seems that the company is ready to try it sluck with an even larger phablet. Although an 7-inch phone is large to easily hold it in your hand, the popularity of smartphones and the recent slowdown in tablet sales mean that the market could accept such a device.

IDC research firm has this week lowered its initial forecast for tablet sales for 2014 from 260.9 million devices to 245.4 million and said that one of the reasons for doing so is the continuing growth in demand for phablets and how the devices are attracting buyers who would have gone for a 7-inch tablet.

Samsung's new 7-inch phablet could also come with AMOLED displays, according to rumors.

Tizen For Galaxy Gear

Samsung is trying to further lighten its dependence on Android by pushing out an update that replaces Android on the original Galaxy Gear with Tizen.

The update includes a few features that debuted on the Gear 2. These include better battery life, ability to use the watch as a standalone music player and customize the wallpaper, fonts and double-tap shortcut, voice commands in the camera, and Sleep and Exercise modes for tracking sleep patterns and workouts.

In case you are a Galaxy Gear owner, have in mind that updating to Tizen would completely reset your smartwatch and of course, it will no longer run any Android apps.

The update can currently be grabbed by connecting the Galaxy Gear to a PC and using Samsung?s Kies software suite.

Samsung, hopes that smartwatches and Tizen-based in-vehicle infotainment systems could give the Tizen OS the traction it hasn't gotten in smartphones. And according to what we've seen so far, if Tizen eventually enter the market, it will make it quietly, powering smartwatches, cameras or TVs.

Tizen's backers are getting their hopes up in advance of a developer conference next week in San Francisco.
