Did the Samsung Mega 2 just get approved by the US FCC?

Earlier this month we came across reports saying the Korean tech giant was planning to lift the lid on the 5.9-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega 2, follow-up to the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3. Now a device that is believed to be the Mega 2 has been approved by the US FCC (Federal Communications Commission).

The listing was spotted by PhoneArena. According to the site, “Now, we have reasons to believe that the Mega 2 was just approved by the FCC as the SM-G750A (this model number is obviously a variation of SM-G7508).

“Details about the SM-G750A first showed up in March, though back then it was believed that this would be a Galaxy S5 mini variant. Well, this is definitely not a mini phone: thanks to the FCC, we know that the SM-G750A measures 164.4 x 85 mm – thus being a bit larger than the Galaxy Mega 5.8, but smaller than the Galaxy Mega 6.3. A handset this size can perfectly host the rumored 5.9-inch display of the Mega 2.”
It adds, “The existence of the SM-G750A is confirmed by Samsung via a UA Profile that’s available on its website. This shows that that the device features a 720p display and Android 4.4 KitKat. All in all, in looks like the Galaxy Mega 2 will be a huge mid-end handset.”

Motorola Moto 360 will be the first Android Wear-powered smartphone to sport an ambient light sensor

Currently, you can get your hands on the Android Wear-powered LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live from the Google Play Store. One of the most annoying things about the two smartwatches is that you have to manually adjust the brightness since the two do not come with ambient light sensors. This will not be the case with the Motorola Moto 360, with Motorola’s Cathay Bi confirming this with TechCrunch.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha may be sold in limited quantities

We’ve come across a number of reports saying Samsung will launch the metal-clad 4.7-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels)-sporting Samsung Galaxy Alpha (also known as the Samsung Galaxy F and known in the past as Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime) to go up against the Apple iPhone 6. However, a report is saying that the Korean tech giant may not be able to cope with the demand, as suppliers are struggling with the metal chassis.

The news comes to us courtesy of Chinese-speaking UDN. According to the report, Samsung’s Chinese suppliers can only deliver 1 million units of the Galaxy Alpha per month. This may seem a lot, but considering the amount of S5′s Samsung sells a month, it may not be able to cope with demand.

If true, we’re guessing Samsung is looking for more suppliers so it can meet consumer demand.

Of course, since Samsung is yet to officially announce the Galaxy Alpha, take this with a pinch of salt.
