The Samsung Galaxy Grand which is a 5 inch Android smartphone in the mid-budget price range has been selling like hot cakes in the Indian subcontinent, thanks to the pricing and the decent specifications along with a large display that Samsung offered. And lately there were rumoured that a successor to the Grand is on its way and today Samsung has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 which brings in some incremental upgrade to the Grand series of smartphones.


The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 packs in a larger 5.25 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels which is upgraded from the previous 800 x 400 pixels on the original Grand. The smartphone is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1.5 GB of RAM. The internal storage on the device is pegged at 8 GB while this will be further expandable up to 64 GB using a microSD card. The smartphone is powered by the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS which is a great and the Android 4.4 KitKat OS upgrade seems imminent in the future.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 carries an 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED Flash on the back while a decent 1.9 megapixel front facing camera for video calls and more has been included. The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 comes with dual-SIM support and connectivity options include 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and 3.5mm audio jack. There is also a larger battery of about 2600 mAh on the device which should provide users with a little longer backup. The phone will be made available in Black, White and Pink colour options and the phone’s back cover has a faux leather finish which was introduced with the launch of the Galaxy Note 3.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2’s availability and pricing details have not been shared yet but we expect the smartphone to be available for around Rs.25000 in India very soon.
