Samsung has presented a brand new phone, the Samsung Galaxy Grand, which hopes to become the next Galaxy Note II.
With a 5-inch screen it's not just a smartphone, but more like a phablet, a new term that describes the gadget that is between phone and tablet. It looks like Galaxy S III and hopes to be the next big hit for Samsung. It has a 800×480 resolution, which is relatively low, it runs on Android 4.1.2 (JellyBean), which is the latest operating system by Google, and it has a 1.2GHz Dual Core processor to cover your multitasking needs. What's more, it has a camera of 8MP to capture your moments and also supports 1080p HD video recording. It has a built-in storage of 8GB and it allows expansions up to 64GB.
Samsung added some useful features, making Galaxy Grand really easy to use:
"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. "
Moreover, it is available in Dual SIM version, or in a single SIM version, with the first one providing full communication flexibility and the choice of different billing plans for each SIM.
For the time being we don't know when will Galaxy Grand be available on market, or how much will it cost, but it is expected to be a relatively low cost phablet, which will make it even more popular.
