Samsung Galaxy Grand plugs the gap between Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note. Sort of

Samsung Galaxy Grand plugs the gap between Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note. Sort ofWith 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.

"Multi" LOL It's "Dual"... Anyway. Nice feature. Once they enable it for ALL apps.

It wouldn't be nice on that screen res anyway

Looks like they are going for a budget huge phone. Actually could see a market for it for the elderly...

Have they had a phone in the .5 inch gap between the s2 and s3?

Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Samsung Galaxy Premier.

So one that's not entirely a Samsung and the other not coming here.

Beside the topic, but does anybody else think Samsung's white phones look very very cheap?

I don't like any white phones appearance tbh.

Hm... I've seen some nice ones; but yeah, most look a bit tacky. But in my mind the S2 and S3 are very bad. iPhone 4S looks a bit shabby in white, also.

Totally agree, just bought the Note 2 in Titanium Grey because the back and bezel look absolutely terrible (aka extremely cheap) in Marble White.
