Samsung Galaxy Grand Max officially announced (and launched in South Korea)
Samsung just announced another member of its Galaxy Grand series of smartphones: the Galaxy Grand Max, a handset that we first saw at the end of December.

The Grand Max was officially unveiled in South Korea, where it’s supposed to be available starting now, costing around $290 (319,000 KRW in local currency).

The new Galaxy runs Android KitKat (upgradeable to Lollipop, we assume), sports a 5.25-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor - possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410. 

On the quilted-patterned back, the Grand Max has a 13 MP camera with LED flash, while its front-facing camera is a 5 MP one with a wide 120-degree viewing angle - perfect for selfies. Other features include LTE Cat. 4, 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, and microSD card support. The handset measures 146 x 74.8 x 7.9 mm, weighs 161 grams, and includes a 2500 mAh battery.

Samsung didn’t say if it’s planning to release the Galaxy Grand Max in other markets.

Looks like a decent device, but nothing spectacular...

Theyre really milking the Galaxy Alpha, Grand, A's, and they're look. They're making a horrible mistake.

Its just s Grand 2 with SD410 instead of SD400 and few more MPs at the back. But no amoled screen.

Samsung must change its design language even though it's a mid-range phone. This one looks so 2012

$290 is about right for this. Not what I'm looking for, but seems reasonable.

Another day, Another galaxy. The back cover is like the texture of a pantyliner/ menstruation pads. LOL
