Samsung unveils Galaxy Grand 2, with 5.25" HD display, faux leather back and larger battery
What was Grand last year, is this year's flagship size, so Samsung just unveiled a Galaxy Grand successor, aptly named Galaxy Grand 2, which sports a higher resolution display, a quad-core processor, larger 2600 mAh battery, plus an additional half a gig of RAM, for a total of 1.5 GB.
We get a slightly increased screen diagonal - 5.25" vs 5" for the original Grand - and the svelter, 8.9mm profile of the Grand 2, compared to the 9.6 mm of the Galaxy Grand. The second edition is taller but slightly narrower than the original, which on theory should help one-handed navigation, but we'll know more when we get a review unit. The Grand 2 sports a faux leather back cover, similar to what Samsung did with the Note 3, indicating that this soft touch material is here to stay on Sammy's phones.
Other than those you get an 8 MP camera again with an LED flash, 8 GB of internal memory plus a microSD slot for expansion, HSPA+ and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. The device is, naturally, a dual SIM phone, targeting it at emerging markets, and runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box.
The all-important pricing and availability for the Galaxy Grand 2 aren't announced at this point, but Samsung shouldn't be far behind with those. The only details we know so far are that the "Galaxy Grand 2 will be offered in White, and Black and Pink in selective regions."
