Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime lands offering cheap selfie thrills

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime lands offering cheap selfie thrillsSamsung has been pretty busy of late launching high-end smartphones like the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Alpha, but does that mean its new product launches are done for the year? Not at all.

Today sees the arrival of the Galaxy Grand Prime, a big but not particularly clever five-incher that aims to be the go-to selfie snapper for anyone on a tight budget.

That would be because of its 5MP front-facing camera, which Samsung says is perfect for taking selfies. It's hardly the only Android phone out there with a 5MP front cam, though, so surely the Galaxy Grand Prime offers something else to stand out from the crowd?

Indeed it does: an 85-degree wide angle lens, which means you can cram in more faces around your own and upgrade your selfie to a groupfie.

If that's the kind of thing that floats your boat, then good on you. If not, it's unlikely that anything else about the Samsung Galaxy Prime will change your mind.

That 5in display comes with a resolution of just 540 x 960, while the whole thing is powered by a pedestrian 1.2GHz quad-core processor. You get an 8GB allocation of internal memory, 1GB of RAM and an 8MP rear-facing camera (which comes with an LED flash and full HD video recording).

Exciting stuff, isn't it? Well for now the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is available only in India, where it's been priced at around £160. However, it should be heading for other markets before too long. We know you can't wait.
