Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 announced



Samsung has announced the existence of the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2, a big-sized smartphone with a moderate suite of specs. This device weighs in at 5.25 inches, and that sizable display (TFT) only pushes 1280 x 720 pixels. It’s big, but its specs clearly show it’s aimed right at the mid-range market that Samsung wants to fill. Here’s what you can expect out of the box:

  • 5.25-inch 720p display
  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor
  • 1.5GB of RAM
  • 8GB of internal storage
  • 8 megapixel camera with 1.9 megapixel front camera
  • WiFi N, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS
  • 2,600mAh battery
  • 146.8 x 75.3 x 8.9 mm, 163g
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz

It won’t have the wolves howling at the moon, but the Galaxy Grand 2 should be a pretty nice device for those who want a big screen without the big price tag. Samsung hasn’t touched on pricing just yet, though we do get a small word on availability — you can get it in White, and Black and Pink, and it will be available in “selective” regions (meaning it’s probably going to end up in an emerging market).

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

        1. Seem’s legit, Techies link is good – but to just go straight to the video without visiting his ad-infected site just go directly to youtube! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0

  2. Big? HA!

  3. Yawn

  4. Good God Samsung. Saturating the hell outta the market
    But they are a household name in almost every category now

  5. Why would anyone get this over a used Note 2? Not seeing the attraction here.

    1. Its for emerging markets where people cannot spend money on a phone that retails $700+ and is $300 on contract.

  6. galaxy spam

  7. Another ugly samsung phone to not buy

  8. Just buy the Mega or the Note for crying out loud.

    2. Just buy the Note 2? Didn’t they say that this was targeting people who couldn’t afford those phones? *confused*

  9. It has the sd 800 and andreno 330, not to shabby .

    1. Why is the processor speced at 1.2 GHz then? I have a G2, which does a SD800, and I believe that it clocks in at 2.23.

      1. Um, maybe to reserve battery. Check the spec sheet , link posted at the bottom .

        1. Waste. May as well be an iShill.

          1. Wtf. Go find a blog fight somewhere else.

        2. prob typo? I’m thinking quad-core mediatek which makes sense for a phone with this spec

  10. Garbage.

  11. thanks for the information, i would like to share a site which says some information about samsung galaxy grand 2

  12. A 2nd one is being announced? I never even heard of the first one!
