Hey! Samsung’s got yet another new Phone, the new 5-inch smartphone called the Galaxy Grand. Despite the name, it’s a mid-range device, with a slightly disappointing 800 x 480 screen resolution, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel camera. Other features of note include 8GB of internal memory (further expandable to 64GB via a microSD memory card) and a 2,100mAh battery (same as the Samsung Galaxy S III).
GALAXY Grand with an impressive 1.2 GHz Dual Core processor supports seamless multitasking, faster web browsing, lightning-fast screen transitions and superior graphics for some of the most demanding apps and games.
On the software side, it will come with Android 4.1.2 and support for Samsung’s Multi Window mode of operation, meaning users will be able to run two apps on the screen simultaneously. The Galaxy Grand will be available both as a dual-sim and a single-sim device. Samsung GALAXY Grand also includes intuitive features that make the phone easy to use.
For example, Direct Call enables users to automatically dial a call by raising the device up to the ear; while users can also shake the phone to trigger status updates, or pan it to zoom into a screen. Smart Alert shows missed events such as missed calls and new messages just by picking up the phone. Popup Video, for example, lets users watch video in a pop-up window anywhere on the screen while running other tasks; S Voice lets you control the phone using your voice; and AllShare Play lets you share content across Samsung devices using a single account.
What holds back the Galaxy Grand is its screen. The display is 5 inches, which places it between the S III’s 4.8-inch screen and the 5.5-inch display on the Note II. However, at a resolution of 800 by 480 pixels, the display of the Galaxy Grand is inferior to both the S III and Note II, which sport 1280 by 720 pixel screens, with a higher pixel density.
Nevertheless, its a treat for all Samsung Fans, Isn’t it?
