Samsung's Galaxy range already includes some stunning smartphones including the flagship Galaxy SIII, the massive Galaxy Note 2 and the affordable Galaxy Ace 2. Now the Korean giants have unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Grand, which is an over-sized mid-range Android smartphone.
The Galaxy Grand comes with a huge 5 inch touch-screen display which runs at a resolution of 800 * 480 pixels. That's pretty unique for a mid-range smartphone because they normally come with smaller displays , which should ensure that the Grand stands out from the crowd.
Another standout feature of Samsung's Galaxy Grand is that it'll come in a dual-SIM version, which again is pretty unusual for a mid-range Android smartphone. While, a single SIM version of the smartphone will also be released for those who who have no need for dual-SIM support.
The Samsung Galaxy Grand is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and has 1GB of RAM. This is a pretty reasonable amount of power for a mid-range smartphone , while it also has 8GB of on-board memory and supports microSD cards up to 64GB.
Android Jelly Bean (4.1.2) comes pre-loaded on the Galaxy Grand and it also benefits from all the latest Samsung applications including S-Voice, Direct Call, Smart Alert, Popup Video and Allshare Play. The smartphone supports WiFi, 3G, DLNA and Bluetooth , while it also comes with a 2 mega-pixel camera with zero-shutter lag.
Samsung havn't unveiled when the Galaxy Grand will go on sale or in what markets. However, we expect to find more out at CES 2013 which takes place in Las Vegas next month.
