Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime carries 5MP "selfie" camera, set to launch in Vietnam

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime carries 5MP
With a number of manufacturers producing handsets with 5MP front-facing cameras, these so-called selfie models are about to get competition from a Samsung model called the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. The device was photographed in Vietnam, and is expected to launch in the country some time next month, priced at the equivalent of $236 USD.  After Vietnam, we should see the phone launch in some other markets in the near future.

The rest of the phone's specs include a 5 inch screen with a resolution of 540 x 960.  A quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU is under the hood with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage inside. A 64GB capacity microSD slot is on board, on back is an 8MP snapper, and Android 4.4 is pre-installed.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is a dual SIM device that offers 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. Some of the competition includes the Sony Xperia C3 and the Nokia Lumia 730, two so-called "selfie" phones. Of course, there are other models with a 5MP front-facing camera that are not given that title, such as the HTC One (M8).

Check out the slideshow below for some images of the phone.

They really need to shorten that. It sounds convoluted

Nice to see Samsung in the selfie game. The Note 4 should have had a 5MP FFC, but better than the 2.1MP before it at least.

When Samsung releases a selfie phone, no one bats an eye. When Sony and Nokia releases a selfie phone, everyone loses their minds. Just saying.

The Galaxy S5 front camera is so embarrassingly bad I'm surprised nobody has made. Bigger deal about it.

Probably because no one really cares. If adding a nicer Ffc increases size or bezels in anyway, give me a crappy one. The GS5 is already bezel tastic for a Samsung phone.

Samsung is not good in low end and midrange phones... Specs of grand are pretty much in the middle of midrange catagory.... there are many chinese phones which are better in hardware and price
