South Korean electronics giant Samsung has launched its new Galaxy Grand dual-SIM phablet for the Indian market. The company said that it will retail the device with a flip cover in the box for Rs. 25,000.
The latest device from the company has been priced within a higher price bracket, due to the fact that its siblings the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Note, are priced above Rs. 28,000. The new Galaxy Grand features a 5-inch WVGA screen and is powered by the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean platform. The device runs on dual-core processor at 1.2 Ghz and has 1 GB RAM under the hood.
The South Korean company has also continued with its design language that was introduced in the Galaxy S III. The device has an 8-megapixel camera with an LED flash, along with a 2-megapixel front facing camera. However, the phablet is available only in the 8 GB variant and the memory capacity can be raised up to 64 GB with the help of a micro-SD card.
The new Galaxy Grand also has a multi-cap functionality, which allows users to access two apps simultaneously. Samsung also said that if the user is talking on one call, then the device would automatically redirect any incoming calls to the other SIM.
