Samsung has announced the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 with a large 5.25-inch screen and mid-range specs.

Building on the Samsung Galaxy Grand released in January this year, the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 will be coming to selective markets at some point soon.

Samsung has yet to announce pricing and availability for the 5.25-inch handset, but it will be coming in black, white and pink when it does.

Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Features

The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 has a 5.25-inch 1280 x 720p HD display and runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

It has Samsung’s latest TouchWiz UI on top of this, which includes software features like S Translator, S Travel, Sound & Shot and Story Album.

Under the hood is a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory. This can be bolstered with microSD cards up to 64GB though.

It has an 8-megpaixel rear camera with autofocus and an LED flash, with a secondary 1.9-megapixel camera in the front.

Running on a 2,600mAh battery, the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 has slimmed down in comparison to its predecessor. It now has dimensions of 146.8 x 75.3 x 8.9mm and weighs a reasonable 163g. The previous model was 9.6mm thick and weighed in a little lighter at 162g.

Connectivity wise you’re looking at HSPA and a dual-SIM card slot but there’s no 4G LTE. You do get Wi-Fi and GPS.

There’s no word on whether the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 will come to the UK, but we’ll keep you posted if there’s any news.

Really, Samsung should not dilute the "Galaxy" brand. It should be reserved for their premium range. Instead it decided to attach the name to almost every device it is making.
