Watch out for Samsung Galaxy Grand, 5-inch Dual-SIM Smartphone

The Samsung Galaxy Grand was announced last december, and now the long wait is over, this 5-inch, Dual-SIM Android smartphone is about to hit the Philippine market this month.
With an SRP of Php16,990 it's way more cheaper than Galaxy S-III and the Note 2, not to mention the Dual-SIM capability and it sports a 5-inch WVGA display that has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
Tech Specs of Samsung Galaxy Grand:
  • 5-inch TFT LCD WVGA display @ 800×480 pixels, 187 ppi
  • 1.2 GHz dual-core
  • Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, Touchwiz UI
  • Dual-SIM (both SIM slots capable of 3G)
  • 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM, microSD up to 32GB
  • HSDPA 14.4 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • 8-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash
  • 1080p video recording @ 30fps
  • 2-megapixel front camera
  • GPS with A-GPS support and GLONASS
  • Li-Ion 2100mAh battery
  • 77 x 143.7 x 9.6 mm
  • 162 g
This might not be as fast as the other Samsung Galaxy Series powered with Quad Core processor, but the Grand advantage is with it's price and Dual-SIM capability and check out that Wi-Fi Dual Band so, if your router supports 5GHz wireless band, you can harness much faster connectivity.


  1. Wow, another gadget from my favorite brand - Samsung. I have just bought Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 last January and I really love it.

    I'll go check nearest Samsung Mobile outlet to have a glimpse and hold this latest smartphone. Thank you so much for posting this.
