Galaxy Grand comes to Korea with a Quad Core CPU

by On January 24, 2013

Even though the Galaxy Grand was announced officially by Samsung over a month ago, we were still missing a great deal of detail about the smartphone. The 5 inched Galaxy Grand was certainly an intriguing device, but the pricing was an important issue for many of us. Other than that we were not sure that the Galaxy Grand will be available in our region or not. Well to be honest we are still in the air regarding many of the things, and yet some have gotten clear. The Galaxy Grand is looking like a much more lucrative device than we initially thought. The Galaxy Grand will me more attractive in its homeland though, as Samsung is treating its national fans with a little bit of extra “grandness” in the Galaxy Grand. The smartphone is going to start shipping though the 3 major carriers (KT, LG U+ and SKT) any day now, which is great news for the Koreans. Apart from the near launch date, the Galaxy Grand will have a very amazing price for a device of its stature. It will be going for 3500,000 won off contract. This makes it around €246 or $328, a price which is a lot lower than we expected and almost half the price of Galaxy Note 2. That is not all though, the Korean version of Galaxy Grand will contain a 1.4 GHz quad core processor instead of the 1.2 GHz dual core one seen in Indian and Ukrainian versions. The 5 inched Galaxy Grand will not support Dual SIM, in Korea though. It will still come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, NFC, 8 mega pixel camera, 1 GB RAM, 2100 mAh batter and a microSD card slot. Well the Galaxy Grand is turning out to be a well-shaped Galaxy Note 2 replacement, at least in Korea. We will be happy to know if and when we can see it shipping to our (US and UK) shores though.
