Within a fortnight of launching the Galaxy Duos 2, Samsung is set to unveil its Galaxy Grand 2 phablet in India. The device is the successor to the Galaxy Grand that was launched earlier this year and was a big hit in the country. It has a larger screen, more RAM and bigger battery than its predecessor.
The company will unveil the handset at an event in Mumbai on December 23. It is running a promotion #EverydayGrand campaign on Twitter ahead of the device’s launch. Media reports suggest that the model will be priced between Rs 19,000 and Rs 21,000.
Connectivity suite of Galaxy Grand 2 includes 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and microUSB 2.0. It is powered by a 2,600mAh battery and the company claims that it can provide talk time of 17 hours. The phone will be available in white, black and pink colours in the market.
Some of the proprietary apps that come preinstalled in Galaxy Grand 2 are Story Album, S Translator, S Travel, Sound & Shot, Samsung Hub, Samsung Link and Group Play.
This phablet will compete against the likes of Sony Xperia C, LG G Pro Lite and Micromax Canvas Turbo, along with its sibling Galaxy Grand Duos.
