Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 announced with mid-range specs

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.
