Those of you who like really big smartphones may be in store for more devices from Samsung.

Samsung is reportedly cooking up more Mega devices to add to its existing Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Mega 5.8 phones, aka phablets. Saying only that it's "received information," blog site Sammobile reported on Wednesday that one of the upcoming Mega devices will be outfitted with Samsung's Exynos processor, possibly the same hexa-core variant found on the Note 3 Neo.

Further details are scarce at this point, according to Sammobile. But the new Mega model would also likely sport Android 4.4 KitKat and may retain or stick close to the 6.3-inch screen size of the original Galaxy Mega.

A spokeswoman for Samsung told CNET that the company does not comment on rumors or speculation.
