The Galaxy Grand 2 is another big Samsung phone (5.25 inches this time), but while it might share the screen-size with the Galaxy Note family, there are a few hardware changes that make this handset more middleweight than flagship. There's 8GB of base storage, with microSD expansion up to 64GB, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor and no stylus. The rear-facing 8-megapixel camera also might not stand up to comparisons against the higher pixel-count varieties. Compared to the original Galaxy Grand, which housed a limp 800 x 480 WVGA screen, the sequel's incrementally bigger display now cranks that up to a passable 720p. The phone will also arrive running Android 4.3, in white, black and pink color options. There's still no LTE on the model, but (at least?) there's dual-SIM slots which means the smartphone is likely to make a global roll-out at a presumably moderate price. When we hear the specifics, we'll let you know.
