The Galaxy Grand 2 is a new hatchling in Samsung’s ever-growing brood — a large-screened blower designed for budget travelers. As a follow up to the Samsung Grand Duos released in 2012, the new Grand 2 comes with mid-tier hardware specs and 5.25-inch high-definition display. The Grand Duos arrived last year with £300 price tag, so we could expect that the Grand 2 will be priced similarly.
The phone has 720p screen resolution, so this would work out to a rather reasonably 280ppi of pixel density. Its 1.2GHz quad-core processor is no longer a high-end model, but it is fairly capable for typical tasks. The phone has 8GB of internal storage and the 1.5GHz of RAM could handle most multitasking sessions. There’s also a microSD slot that supports up to 64GB of memory card.
It will come running the slightly older Android 4.3, but probably we could expect Samsung to provide a KitKat update sometime in 2014. The South Korean company is planning to deliver Android 4.4 build for Samsung Galaxy S4 and Note 3, while other models will get it the following months. The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 comes in pink, black and white.
