Grand or Ordinary?

Samsung Unveils Galaxy Grand

                                                            Samsung is expanding their Galaxy Range in a consistent phase. Some of these devices become successful and some become failures. It is up to you to decide whether this new addition to the Galaxy range is going to be a hit or a flop. They have named it as Galaxy Grand. Sounds grand for sure. But is it really a device that would take forward the grandeur of Galaxy Line-up. Though we can't say anything about its actual performances yet, as it is due to be released on the first quarter of next year, we could make some assumptions about how it would do in the competitive Android world.

                                            There are two Galaxy Grand models ,I9080 and I9082 and the only difference between these two is that the latter one is a dual-sim one. Other than that both are identical. Lets check out the revealed specifications of these devices.

Samsung Galaxy Grand Specifications

  • Networks: 2G: GSM 3G: HSDPA
  • Display: 5.0" 480x800pixels, 187ppi.
  • Processor: Dual-Core 1.2 Ghz
  • GPU: Not Specified
  • Memory: 1GB ram, 8GB storage, microSD slot.
  • Camera: 8 MP with 1080p video recording.
  • Secondary Camera: 2MP
  • Connectivity: GPRS, EDGE, WLAN, Bluetooth, HSPA.
  • OS: Android 4.1.2, Jelly Bean
  • Weight: 162 g.
  • Battery: 2100 mAh Li-Ion.

                                              As we could see, with the above specifications this phone would not be a high-end device. We could assume that Samsung is trying to provide their loyal customers a Galaxy Note like feeling on a budget. The display is not up to par according to today's standards. Now a days even small budget android devices have more resolution than this device. As per the revealed specification, this device doesn't support NFC. The processor would most probably be a Exynos 1.2Ghz dual-core one which was used in Galaxy SII. How these devices would do in the smartphone world is still a question and that would be answered in the near future.
