Samsung Galaxy Grand 3 steps closer to release
The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 released right at the beginning of the year, and it’s anticipated that the mid-range Galaxy Grand 3 phablet could be arriving on the scene soon. News today suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Grand 3 has stepped closer to a release, and this will please those who are waiting to see what this phone will offer.
In early November we reported on a benchmark spot of a Samsung device with model number SM-G7200, which is thought to be the Galaxy Grand 3. The specs listed included a 1.GHz Snapdragon 410 64-bit quad-core processor, Adreno 306 GPU, a 5.5-inch display with 1280 x 720 resolution (now thought to be a 5.25-inch display), 1.5GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory (expandable to 128GB via microSD).
The model listed also had a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing unit, with both capable of 1080p video capture, and this would be a nice upgrade over the Galaxy Grand 2, although we must remember these specs aren’t official yet. The phone spotted was running the Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system.
Galaxy Grand 3 dimensions are thought to be 146mm x 74.8mm x 7.95mm, weighing in at 140g. That means it would be both slimmer and lighter than the Grand 2. The news that the Grand 3 could be nearing a release comes from a TENAA appearance in China. This Chinese regulator filing implies that the phone is near to a launch, and so we could be hearing more on this very soon.
The Galaxy Grand 2 proved to be pretty popular with buyers so it’s likely that a lot of people will be waiting for the release of the Galaxy Grand 3. Do you hope to see this phone made official before too much longer? What are your initial thoughts on the above unconfirmed specs? Let us know with your comments.
