This is the Samsung Galaxy Grand 3: thinner and lighter than the Grand 2
Samsung is seemingly almost ready to release a successor to its Galaxy Grand 2 - one of the company’s best-selling smartphones in the first half of the year. Naturally called Galaxy Grand 3 (model number SM-G7200), the new handset hasn’t been announced yet, but we can still check it out - thanks to the fact that it’s been approved by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center.

Although we heard that the Grand 3 would sport a 5.5-inch display, in reality the smartphone comes with a 5.25-inch 720p screen - just like its predecessor. The new Galaxy Grand measures 146 x 74.8 x 7.95 mm, and weighs 140 grams, being both thinner, and lighter than the Grand 2 (146.8 x 75.3 x 8.9 mm, 163 grams).

The Galaxy Grand 3 comes with beefier cameras: a 13 MP unit on the back, and a 5 MP one on the front. It also has a newer processor (a 64-bit, 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410), and more storage space: 16 GB. Other features include 1.5 GB of RAM, microSD card support up to 128 GB, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

We liked the Galaxy Grand 2 when we reviewed it earlier year, so we’re looking forward to seeing how the Grand 3 performs. The new handset should be available in white, black, and other colors, though we don’t know exactly when it’s supposed to be launched. We’ll let you know when we hear more on this anyway.
