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

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