Galaxy Grand was a big success for Samsung and so here comes the updated version of that phablet device. People went for the Galaxy Grand as it was having 5 inch display, most of the Samsung’s smartphone features and it was priced just half than high end Samsung’s smartphones.
Just now, Samsung has launched Galaxy Grand 2 and as expected Samsung has increased the display size. Galaxy Grand 2 is still a phablet and it got 5.2 inch display while the previous Galaxy Grand was having 5 inch display.
As always, Samsung didn’t change the design at all and Galaxy Grand 2 looks exactly same as Galaxy Grand but newer one is thicker than previous one.
Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Specifications
Let see what all are the specifications of Galaxy Grand 2 and what all features it includes.
- 1.2GHz Quad Core processor
- 1.5GB of RAM
- 8GB of internal storage
- Expandable up to 64GB
- 5.2 inch TFT display
- Resolution of 720×1280 pixels
- 8MP rear camera with LED flash
- 1.9MP front facing camera
- Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS
- 3G (HSPA+)
- 2600mAh battery
So these were the specifications of Galaxy Grand 2. It weighs about 163 grams and measures approx 8.9mm in thickness. Samsung has also made space for dual SIM cards.
The special apps or features which Samsung preloads in Galaxy S4, S3 and Note 3 like devices are also there in Galaxy Grand 2. Apps like S Translator, Group Play, S Travel, Story Album, etc. There are changes in the camera section although you’ll find improvement in quality due to better version of Android inside.
The major attraction for an Android lover in Galaxy Grand 2 is the version of Android on which Galaxy Grand 2 runs i.e. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. There are very few smartphones from Samsung and other brands which run this version of Android and till now it’s the second best and latest version.
I hope this device soon receives update for Android 4.4 KitKat which is newly released but Android 4.3 is also better than any previous versions.
Samsung has tagged the battery life number to 17 hours of talktime over 3G network which reflects that battery life is going to be good. Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 price in India is expected to be around 20k INR.
