Samsung GALAXY Grand officially announced

Samsung GALAXY Grand have been officially announced and it’ll be available in both single and dual SIM versions, with latter version first to be released. It is a mid-range device with somewhat unusual specs. You notice, it comes with a 5-inch WVGA (480×800 pixels) display instead of HD one. Remainder of the specs are similarly mid-end and include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, 2-megapixel front-facing one, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage, Bluetooth 4.0 and a microSD memory card slot. In other words, it’s just like the Galaxy S II with a much bigger screen and fewer storage (Galaxy S II has 16 GB).

However, it does include Jelly Bean out of box that’s further beefed up with Samsung software to permit users to run two apps directly (Multi Window), see missed calls and new messages simply by picking up the telephone (Smart Alert), watch videos in a pop-up window, and share content across Samsung devices via AllShare Play. Plus, let’s not forget S Voice, which allows you to control the telephone using your voice.

Pricing and availability information weren’t released though we think to determine the GALAXY Grand start selling sooner or later in early 2013.
