Samsung Announces 5-Inch Galaxy Grand

Samsung today unveiled its new Galaxy Grand smartphone, running the latest Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The handset, which appears to be geared towards the low- to mid-range market, sports a 5-inch screen, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, backside illumination sensor, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 8 GB of internal storage and a 2,100 mAh lithium-ion battery.

The smartphone also has a digital compass, accelerometer, Bluetooth 4.0 and a gyro sensor. The handset will be available in two versions, dual SIM and single SIM. Dual SIM is particularly interesting because it means that you can manage two phone numbers from a single smartphone. The Galaxy Grand is no Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note II, but is rather a step below as Samsung attempts to release devices in all size ranges. No pricing or availability information is known yet.
