Unannounced Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo GT-I9168 shows up in China

Chinese authorities have certified a new Samsung Android smartphone (model number GT-I9168) believed to be the rumored Galaxy Grand Neo, which was initially known as Galaxy Grand Lite.
The Grand Neo GT-I9168 has TD-SCDMA connectivity, so it should be released by China Mobile at some point. Assuming that there will also be a global version of it, this could have a different model number.
Specs-wise, the Galaxy Grand Neo is closer to the old Galaxy Grand from early 2013 than to the newer Galaxy Grand 2. It appears to feature a 5-inch WVGA (480 x 800) display, quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 5MP rear camera with LED flash, VGA front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and a 2,100 mAh battery. The handset runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean – unlike the Grand 2, which comes with 4.3 JB out of the box.
It’s said that Samsung will sell the Galaxy Grand Neo for around $300 / €299. But that would be a high price for what the smartphone seems to offer. Another Galaxy Neo that’s been in the rumors lately is the Note 3 Neo. Maybe Samsung will officially announce both these devices during MWC next month? We’ll let you know!

As the story goes, another hour another Samsung device. Tinkering with the specs and the design in Photoshop isn't impressive at all.

Why no Galaxy S3 Neo+ isn't mentioned? It's the old-new phone from Sammy. Such S3.
