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).

Another post on PhoneArena about a previously leaked and more-leaked and not-yet-confirmed and rumoured device rolling out not even in their country and another anti-fan commenting without reading the whole post.

I think he'd be pretty dumb to take it. Grand has glossy plastic while Grand 2 has faux leather. A little bit of research on everything goes a long way.

He's obviously lying.....

Although people complain about this phone, this phone is perfectly suited for Indian market. That around 20k mark is where most people go for a smartphone. I guess the only competition it will have now in that segment is Nokia 1320 and some Xperia phones. I would choose the Grand.

Agree. But the launching price is still little high.18-19K would've been good. Let's hope for a price drop soon.
