Samsung does well in taking the limelight away from its competitors. Previously, it was running a campaign against Apple in Australia, and today, the Korean company has made announcement of the new Galaxy Grand smartphone. You can place it between Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note. The company states the phone is for those who have fast-paced lifestyles and want more from their phone.
Taking a close look shoes the device looks like the large Galaxy S3. It has a rear camera at the center, the corners are rounded, and there’s a rectangular home button at the front bottom. The device has a 5.0 inch display, which makes it quite large. However, it’s slim and comfortable to hold according to the statements.
Even though the marketing of the screen has labeled it as vivid, it has an 800*480 resolution and comes with a WVGA display. The specifications include 1.2 Ghz Dual core processor, which supports faster multi-tasking, better web browsing, and great graphics to support some of the most demanding games and applications on Google Play.
There is 8GB of internal SD card, which can be extended up to 64GB with the use of an external microSD card. The front camera is 2 megapixels HD, which means it is ideal for FaceTime calls. The latest Bluetooth technology, 4.0, is also included in the handset.
It has a good battery time as the battery is 2,100 mAh. The device runs on android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Looks like the latest Nexus devices are the only ones with android 4.2 so far. There will be two models offered. The first one is GT-i9082, while the second one is GT-i9080. The first one is dual-SIM, while the second one is single SIM.
There’s no ETA or pricing. What are your thoughts upon the images? Feel free to leave comments.
