Samsung GT-I8092 Galaxy Grand DUOS tipped to appear in January with two SIM slots and 5
We got the leak about an affordable Note II version with lower-res screen coming to Europe, and we also got the FCC filing for a Samsung Grand 5-incher coming to the US, with 480x800 pixels of resolution, 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor, and a 2,100 mAh battery. Putting two and two together, these might be one and the same handset - after all, Samsung filed for the Galaxy Grand trademark way back in the spring.

Now we get the next rumor, this time about a possible Samsung Galaxy Grand DUOS, which covers the specs above, but carries two SIM card slots for a good measure. The Grand Duos is allegedly codenamed GT-I8092, and will make a cameo in January, possibly at the CES expo in Las Vegas.

The Galaxy Grand DUOS is supposed to appear in Metallic Blue and Elegant White, but we sincerely hope that the price would be right, as the WVGA resolution on a 5" LCD screen doesn't sound hot at all, unless we get the stylus and the software goodies from the Note II to make the pixel density more palatable.

That's about 186 ppi. It's pretty over-powered if you ask me, a quad-core Exynos chip for a 480*800 screen. That's freaking unbelievable. If the unlocked version were $299-$399, it would be a steal. That's highly unlikely though since the Samsung GALAXY SII costs around that much and has pretty much the same specs, only without the 5 inch screen and quad-core chip. I do think this phone would have a crazy high battery life.

Smart move by Samsung, you'll get a taste of phabsomeness at an affordable price, and probably want to switch to the real deal when the Note 3 is out, strategy worked extremely well for other Sammy devices. It however has to come at or below the Nexus 4 price.

For people without access to Google Play's price of $300 like myself, I'd find this irresistible. Although I already have a note and the screen is just gorgeous, so I'll pass and get the Note 3, hopefully they'll bring back 16:10 in the form of 1920:1200 or 1440:900.

Extremely low resolution for this size of screen!

I'm glad someone has brains. You're going to run all of that power, and never use it because of a crappy screen and everything will look crappy.

Might as well get the Note II. I'm sure prices will drop a little by then.

they should make a 4 inch. 720p screen with quad core exynos.

That would indeed make up for a very very low screen pixel density (ppi). But quad-core on a low-res screen would account for higher benchmarks.. hahaha.. but still this is non-sense.
