Android 4.2.2 test build for the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos surfaces

Android 4.2.2 test build for the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos surfaces
Earlier today, an insider for SamMobile has sent in an official Android 4.2.2 test build for the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos, offering a sneak preview of what's about to grace the owners of the dual-SIM mid-ranger.

So, straight to what's new – the more notable additions that are set for official release sometime this quarter include Day Dream mode, a transparent notification bar, the somewhat creepy Smart Stay feature and Page Buddy among other. Exempt from a refresh appears to be the camera – whether that changes by the official release is yet unknown. The chaps behind SamMobile also commented that performance-wise the device is handling itself much better.

A quick recap in case you're a little foggy on the specs sheet – the Grand Duos is a 5-inch TFT WVGA slate featuring a somewhat disappointing resolution of 480x800. Other notable internals include a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM, along with an 8MP snapper on the back.
