New information regarding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 has leaked. The 5.9-inch phablet has shown up in the GFXBench database and the benchmarks confirm the smartphone's specs.

When Samsung launched the original Galaxy Note, many said that the device was too large and consumers would not buy nor carry such a huge device. The skeptics were wrong and Samsung is already preparing to launch its next generation Galaxy Note 4 at IFA in Berlin this September.

Samsung also knows that the price of its Galaxy Note phablets can be expensive due to its high-end specs and features. The company addressed this when it exclusively launched the Galaxy Mega 6.3 with AT&T and Sprint last year. The smartphone boasted Samsung's largest display to date, a massive 6.3-inch 720p display. To keep the price down, Samsung elected to use mid-range specs, like a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and Super Clear LCD panel, instead of the better quality and more expensive Super AMOLED displays found on many of Samsung's smartphones.

We reported back in March that Samsung was working on releasing a Galaxy Mega successor. Samsung launched two Galaxy Mega variants last year; a 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch. It appears as if the company is planning on following the same script and will release a 5.9-inch and a 6.3-inch to 7-inch models.

The 5.9-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 has made an appearance on GFXBench, an online benchmark database. The benchmark lists the phablet by its model number, SM-G7508. The processor is listed as a 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, which is also its first 64-bit chip that Samsung has been rumored to be internally testing on a mid-range device. It also has an Adreno 306 GPU (graphics processing unit) and 2GB of RAM to keep things running smoothly.

The Galaxy Mega 2's camera capabilities include a 12-megapixel rear camera and 4.7-megapixel front-facing camera (which seems rather high for a mid-range device). The smartphone is running Android 4.4.3 KitKat and likely Samsung's TouchWiz UI.

It's unclear when Samsung plans on officially announcing its upcoming Galaxy Mega series but considering it's getting close to its one-year anniversary, we expect to hear something soon. We'll keep you posted.
