Samsung Galaxy Grand 3 to be officially announced soon
Samsung will soon announce a new Galaxy Grand smartphone - most likely the Galaxy Grand 3 that we showed you back in December.

Samsung India sent out a teaser image that shows the right half of a handset while reading "The Grandest Ever, Coming Soon." The device certainly looks like the Grand 3, from the power button on the side, to the front facing camera and the speaker grille.

Since the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 was released in early 2014, it makes sense for Samsung to prepare the launch of a successor.

As we previously told you, the Grand 3 will be thinner, and slightly more powerful than its predecessor, though its screen will remain unchanged, at 5.25 inches (720 x 1280 pixels). The new Grand will feature a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 13 MP rear camera with flash, and a 5 MP front-facing camera. There's also 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage space, and microSD card support (up to 128 GB). It's not clear if the Galaxy Grand 3 will run Android KitKat, or Android Lollipop at launch, but we certainly hope to see the latter.

The Galaxy Grand 2 was one of Samsung's best-selling handsets in the first half of 2014, but it remains to be seen if the new model can also be a hot seller (this, of course, will depend on its price).

Samsang.. Stahp. You're making your products worthless. This looks like an S3 / S5 hybrid.

Samsung, sell it for less than $250 and it'll be a hit in the Asian market.

LOL, they could clearly make a Grand 4 and 5 now and sell it in 2016 and 2017 respectively. Just leave room for SD 420 and 430.
