Today December 23, 2013; Samsung launched their next upgrade for their one of the most popular, Dual-SIM Android phones Samsung Galaxy Grand. The new model is called ‘Galaxy Grand 2’. The launch event took place in Mumbai, India with famous Bollywood actress Huma Qureshi.
With the new Galaxy Grand 2, the company has loaded some of its most welcomed features from other hi-end Galaxy series on to this dual-SIM. With the new Galaxy Grand 2, the company has loaded some of its most welcomed features from other hi-end Galaxy series on to this dual-SIM phone.
Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 features an upgrade in hardware & its software; the phone is now powered with 1.2 quad-core processor, HD display, both HD cameras & soft leather-like textured back cover just like their Galaxy Note 3, giving it a premium look.
Galaxy Grand 2 also features some of the software features added by Samsung such as; Best-Face, Best-Photo, Continuous-Shot, Sports-Dual Shot, Shake-Detection, Sound & Shot, Story Albums. Samsung has put up all these premium features as said above, including a ‘Group Play’ feature, on to the newest Grand series phone.
The company also introduced the new ‘Club Samsung’ entertainment which offers Movies, Music, Live TV & Gigs on-the-go & also continued to ship a travel companion app TripAdvisor
The screen-size is slightly bigger than the earlier model & the new Galaxy Grand 2 comes in 3 colors: White, Black and Pink to attract female consumers as well.
The only problem I see is the battery power. I think, with such large smartphones — the companies should start shipping a really large batteries that can double the stand-by duration. In that case, I would say Lenovo is doing good with their phones & Yoga tablets.
