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.
