Default [WTF][NEW PHONE] Brand new Galaxy W, Not what you might expect though

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
