Within two months of announcing it globally, Samsung has made its Galaxy Grand 2 smartphone available on its home land in Korea too. The device is priced at no more than 517,000 K (about $484 USD), being indeed much more affordable than other high-end models. After all, we are talking about a mid-range Samsung smartphone that manages to stand out only for having a 5.25 -inch screen. With this handset, Samsung aims to popularize these phablets models in as many regions as possible, without emptying your pockets and here’s what else you could be getting:
Samsung’s Galaxy Grand 2 Key Element
We have already told you that Samsung’s Galaxy Grand 2 key element is its 5.25-inch 16M-color 720p capacitive touchscreen, although we are aware of the fact that a 280ppi is far from being among the best options out there. But this screen that we are talking about is big, is bright and lets you enjoy HD content with a depth estimated at 16 million colors and this is exactly what many of you are eager to try. Moreover, we can also add that it is a design wise handset coming with a faux-leather backing similar to the popular Samsung Note series, so it is very elegant and easy to hold as well.
Other Major Technical Specs
When it comes to its other specs, you should know that Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 houses a Qualcomm MSM8226 Snapdragon 400 chipset along with a quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 CPU and 1.5GB of RAM. As for its 8MP autofocus camera, it comes with LED flash, as well as a generous 1080p video recording @ 30fps, so you’ll have the possibility to capture all special moments of your life.
Finally, don’t forget that Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 comes with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS version out of the box along with the usual TouchWiz, but we are all hoping to hear about a KitKat update in the near future.
