Samsung Galaxy Grand 2

Samsung has just announced its successor to the popular Samsung Galaxy Grand, the Galaxy Grand 2. The Grand series could be described as a budget Galaxy Note, big screen phones but with mid-range specifications to suit the lower price point when compared to the Galaxy Note. The new version, that is expected to be released before the end of the year, incorporates the design of the larger Galaxy Note 3, with a leather look back and faux stitching around the edges.

Unlike the Note series, the Galaxy Grand 2 doesn’t include the S-Pen stylus. The new Grand 2 has a larger screen – up from 5″ to 5.25″ – and a much needed boost in resolution to 720 x 1280 (280ppi). The specifications of the Galaxy Grand 2 are:

  • TFT screen 5.25″ 720 x 1280
  • 8GB storage expandable via microSD up to 64GB
  • 1.5GB RAM
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual band, Wi-Fi Hotspot, DLNA
  • Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP
  • 8MP rear camera, autofocus, LED flash
  • 1.9MP front camera
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • Quad-core 1.2 GHz processor
  • Accelerometer, gyro, proximity sensor
  • GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS
  • 2600mAH battery
  • 146.8 x 75.3 x 8.9mm
  • 163grams

The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is expected to be released before the end of the year, and we’ll keep you updated if an official Australian release is announced.

when are they going to be released in Australia? and how much


Another phone released by Samsung haha. If it’s priced around $300-400, it will be reasonable I reckon.


seeing that samsung has the galaxy s4 and now the Grand 2, maybe phone makers should move to 2014 galaxy s, 2014 Grand 2 and maybe a 2(or apples case S) each year, but then we might end up with 2015 models starting in early 2014 like they do with some cars


Looking at the photo, the camera looks to be raised from the back surface of the Galaxy Grand 2. I can’t tell if the camera lens is inset, though.
