Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 finally available (only in India for now)

Samsung this week started selling its new Galaxy Grand 2 smartphone, bringing it to market a bit later than initially expected. For now, the Galaxy Grand 2 seems to be available only in India, where its dual SIM version costs $374 (or Rs.22,999 in local currency). A single SIM model also exists, but this doesn’t appear to be released yet.

The Galaxy Grand 2 is Samsung’s second handset to come with a faux leather back, the first being the high-end Galaxy Note 3. Its features include Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, a 5.2-inch 720p display, an 8MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.9MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory. The handset is 8.9mm thin, and includes a 2,600 mAh battery. The Indian version of the Grand 2 comes with free access to Club Samsung for three months, allowing users to enjoy music, movies and mobile TV in 9 Indian languages

We don't know when the Grand 2 will reach other markets, but it's probably safe to assume that it's going to happen in the near future.

A new, different Galaxy Grand model, reportedly called Grand Neo, might also be released by Samsung soon. This should be cheaper than the Grand 2, offering lower-end specs (including a WVGA 5-inch display).
