Samsung Galaxy Mega is biggest smartphone yet

Galaxy Mega

Samsung have unveiled the latest and biggest smartphone, the Galaxy Mega.

The company says its 6.3 inch screen makes it ideal for watching videos or running two apps side-by-side.

The size of the phone also means it fits into the 'phablet' category - a cross between a phone and a tablet.

Samsung say the phone is small enough to fit into your pocket and hold in your hand - but they're also planning to sell a smaller 5.8 inch version of the smartphone.

Research suggests that Samsung was the leading maker of smartphones in the world - with over 30% of smartphones sold in 2012 being made by the South Korean firm.

Both will go on sale in Europe in May.
