If you are searching for a phone that is expected to be cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S3, larger in size, powered by Android OS and above all – a Samsung product then you don’t have to wait any longer because Samsung is going to launch a phone that is having a larger display than S3, powered by Android, and mind blowing camera quality. They have named it Samsung Galaxy Grand. Samsung Galaxy Grand has been announced recently and it’s believed that the phone will be available to the customers by Q1 of 2013. Samsung Galaxy Grand, according to its specifications and our guess, would be priced somewhere around Rs.30,000 and that’s actually a fair deal. Samsung is offering a lot of features with this phone, that may be no other company can provide. Along with features, you are given the Samsung quality and that’s the best thing.
Samsung Galaxy Grand, as mentioned above, is powered by Android v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) OS. Jelly Bean OS is the latest of all the Android operating system versions. Jelly Bean OS is also considered to be the smartest phone operating system ever made for a phone. This OS was first time introduced in Google’s own tablet – Nexus 7.
Samsung Galaxy Grand is having an 8MP primary camera. This fun just doesn’t stop here; it’s also having a 2MP secondary camera. You can even record full HD videos from this phone @ 30 frames per second speed. Samsung Galaxy Grand has also got other camera features like image stabilization n etc.
Samsung Galaxy Grand, as announced, will have just variant with 8GB internal memory. 64GB is may be the highest memory size that you can get on Samsung Galaxy Grand (you got it. Samsung Galaxy Grand supports expandable memory up to 64GB). Other than that, Samsung Galaxy Grand comes with 1GB RAM. Similar are the memory specifications of Samsung’s flagship phone – Samsung Galaxy S3.
Samsung Galaxy Grand will have a 1.2GHz dual core processor with almost all other kinds of sensors. Samsung has still not decided upon the Chipset that they are going to put in Samsung Galaxy Grand. Samsung Galaxy Grand is having Android, which means that you can root your device and over-clock it.
Samsung Galaxy Grand is having all other data connectivity features like a normal smartphone from Samsung. Samsung Galaxy Grand supports 3G (yes, it doesn’t support 4G network). Other connectivity features include – Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE, microUSB v2.0 etc. One of the major drawbacks in Samsung Galaxy Grand is that it doesn’t allow the users to share data through NFC.
Looks wise, Samsung Galaxy Grand is maybe a close cousin of Samsung Galaxy S3 with stout body. Samsung Galaxy Grand is having a 5inch screen with 187 ppi pixel density. The screen resolution is quite low – 480 x 800 pixels. Coming to the screen type, Samsung Galaxy Grand is having a capacitive touchscreen with multitouch support. The dimensions of the phone are 143.5 x 76.9 x 9.6 mm, and the weight is just 162grams. Comparing such physical factors with SGS3, I must say that it’s not going to put up a hit show. You see, it has got poor screen resolution; it weighs a lot, a bit thicker than S3 (which also makes it almost impossible to carry).
Samsung Galaxy Grand is just like a cheaper version of Samsung Galaxy S3. Samsung Galaxy Grand has got lesser features than its big brother but believe me, if Samsung will be able to create huge price difference between the price of Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy Grand, then may be the sales of Samsung Galaxy Grand will surpass the sales of Samsung Galaxy S3.
