The image below shows that Samsung might want to release another device named Galaxy W, however it has absolutely nothing to do with our Galaxy W and I know that our device does have the name Galaxy Wonder but it still creates a (pointless really) confusion.




As I said this 'NEW' Galaxy W has nothing to do with our Galaxy and seems to be more like Galaxy Mega 2 as it has 7 inch screen (SERIOUSLY? 7 INCHES IN A PHONE?!).
There is a chance that the name Galaxy W will only be present in South Korea and it might actually have the name Galaxy Mega 2 worldwide, either way, what do you guys think?

I think they should really pick a different name for it, it's just confusing. That is unless they have some other magical name for it, I'm suggesting Samsung Galaxy Widespread.

Source and more details - GSMArena

The phone is now official

hahha! (: If it names "Galaxy W", I think it will be so ridiculous and confusing. I agree with you.

This new W has absolutely nothing to do with our one other than the name, so that won't be possible and it only runs 4.2
