It was only back in January that the Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo smartphone went official in Netherland via Samsung’s own website and today, the Korean giant has already officially launched the new smartphone in the Indian subcontinent for a decent price tag of Rs.18,450 at the ongoing Samsung Forum 2014 in Bali. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo doesn’t pack in any high end specifications and is just another mid-budget smartphone from Samsung with a large 5 inch display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels while there is a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1 GB of RAM.



The internal storage is a decent 8 GB or 16 GB while this will surely be expandable using a microSD card slot. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS with Samsung’s very own TouchWiz Nature UI running on the top of it. Design-wise, the Galaxy Grand Neo carries the same old Samsung design with White colour option and nothing new in this field, which is a bit disappointing as the Samsung design is finally getting boring and seems like the company is running out of design-innovation.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo has a 5 megapixel camera with LED Flash on the back with a front facing VGA camera also made available to users to make video calls. The connectivity options on the device include the usual 2G, 3G, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi and 3.5mm audio jack apart from dual-SIM options with dual-standby. To keep the Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo running, the company has packed in a 2100 mAh battery which seems to be just okay for getting you through a day’s usage.

For the price of Rs.18,450, the Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo is an okay upgrade if you are looking for a original Galaxy Grand substitute and not willing to go for the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2. So will you buy the Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo or something else?
