Samsung Spoils the fun, Launches Cheaper Quad Core Galaxy Grand in Korea

Browse This Page

 

Samsung has just announced the South Korea variant of the Galaxy Grand which was launched last week in India. While the looks of the device are identical to the global variants, there are several changes inside, including a Quad core SOC. The phone is also apparently capable of LTE networks, as opposed to the dual-core chip and 3G capable variant launched in India.

The best part is that the South Korea version of the Galaxy Grand also has NFC capabilities and a USB 3.0 port for faster data access. The phone retains the WVGA display and 5 inch screen along with the 8 megapixel rear and 2 Megapixel front camera. The phone also carries  Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS from Google along with TouchWiz user interface. 

Interestingly the Galaxy Grand South Korea version is based on an Exynos chipset with a MALI GPU, and will be available in South Korea for 350,000 won (around $325 / or INR 18,000 approx) which is about 5k cheaper than the low spec’d variant in India.

Does this mean Samsung is going to refresh the Indian variant soon?

                   Off-course Yes…. Samsung has to do something with their Hi-Price tag to make it down to stay in the race, because Indian Market is gonna be as tough as Indian-Multinational Companies are making great Impact on Indians mind with their competitive, better configured yet cheap products….. So Samsung Guys….!!!! best of luck….!!!….
