Samsung first unveiled the Galaxy Grand last month in two versions, dual-SIM and single-SIM models. Recently, the company announced a third model and this time it has LTE connectivity and faster 1.4GHz quad-core processor. As a comparison, two earlier Galaxy Grand models have only HSPA+ connectivity and 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Others specs remains the same, including 5” WVGA display, 1GB of RAM, 8Mp rear0facing camera, 2Mp front-facing camera, microSD card slot, 8GB of onboard storage and 2100mAh battery.
Other connectivity options are Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, S-Beam and NFC. All Galaxy Grand models will be running TouchWiz UI on top of Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) OS. There’s a possibility that the phone is heading exclusively to a South Korean carrier, T-DMB and this might suggest that the variant won’t be available outside the country.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Grand is a budget phablet as it only uses WVGA screen resolution and slower 1.2GHz dual-core processor. However, it would still appeal to consumers who need larger display, but don’t care much about ultra high resolution and super-fast performance level.
