With the Samsung Galaxy S III measuring 4.8in and the original Samsung Galaxy Note weighing in at 5.3in, Samsung has had many a sleepless night over the colossal 0.5in display vacuum. What if someone wants a 5incher?!
Well, the South Koreans can rest easy tonight, as the 5in Samsung Galaxy Grand has finally been officially unveiled.
We first heard the name “Galaxy Grand” back in March this year, when Samsung registered the name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
But while the name perhaps suggests a spanking new flagship, Samsung Galaxy Grand specs are likely to leave you feeling a tad unsatisfied.
For starters, a 5in 800 x 480 WVGA display is unlikely to melt your eyes. The resulting PPI is a modest 186. On the plus side, the Samsung Galaxy Grand does utilise Samsung’s multi-window thing.
Other Samsung Galaxy Grand specs include an unspecified 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front shooter, 1GB of RAM, 2,100mAh battery, and Jelly Bean (Android 4.1).
As for Samsung Galaxy Grand storage, it ships with 8GB, but – thankfully – welcomes an additional 64GB via microSD.
Finally, the Samsung Galaxy Grand will come in two flavours, the second being a dual-SIM version.
Samsung Galaxy Grand price and availability remain a mystery, though we expect to find out more at CES in a few weeks.
